LG announced today that the LG Pop (LG GD510) topped one million in worldwide sales just 100 days after its European and CIS launch in October 2009. The LG Pop features a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen framed by a super-slim 4.8 mm bezel and software that allows users to update their status on sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter on the go at any time.
The LG Pop has won plaudits for its innovative use of green technology. With the optional solar battery cover, every 10 minutes the phone spends in the sun generates over two minutes of talk time or 180 minutes of standby time. Thanks to the phone?s Eco-tree and Eco-calculator applications, users can even calculate exactly how much CO2 has been cut by using the solar battery cover.
The LG Pop debuted with a new user interface that included quirky icons and a bright color scheme. Changeable rear covers (available in most regions) added to the phone?s list of customizable features. Where offered, covers are available in fluorescent shades of pink, green and orange, peanut-patterned black and silver, an XO pattern and glossy white.
Starting next month, two new phone colors, aqua blue and lime, will be added to the Pop?s palette.
