Stuck when it comes to buying a Christmas present for that special someone? Not really sure what to get for them?
Well here’s one idea, LG has come out with a new reasonably priced full Touch Screen phone at less than RM1k!
It seems like when it comes to handphone technology, touch screen is the new big thing with every manufacturer coming out with some kind of touchscreen phone – most of them tending to be more towards the Smart phone and high end markets. Now if you are looking for a sexy special gift for someone, perhaps you can look for the brand new LG KP500 Cookie!
It looks good doesn’t it, it seems to take it’s design cues from the much more expensive LG Renoir as you can see from the picture above – it does look good and it’s very slim at only 11.9mm!
The basic specs for the LG KP500 are as follows:
- Quad band GSM connectivity
- 3â€³ touchscreen display
- 3 megapixel camera
- Black, Vandyke brown, Anodizing silver, and Elegant gold color schemes
- Built-in motion sensor
- On screen QWERTY keyboard
The variety of colours gives you a bit of a choice so you can better match it your personal preference (and accessories for the girls). I think you could buy this for both your girlfriend or your boyfriend, it’s not a gender specific design and you can inject a bit of personality with the colour choice.
It comes with a stylus as well meaning better support for handwriting recognition and therefore Chinese language (very important in Asian markets).
The places where it’s been cut back are mainly the camera (only 3 megapixels) and the data usage (please note it has no 3G support). So this is aimed more towards those people that just want a phone, and want a touch screen. It’s not so much a convergence device for those heavy data users.
The best part, it’s retailing for less than RM1k! The LG KP500 will be only RM900. Considering that most touch screen phones are at least double (and some triple) that price – it’s great value for money. If you’re shopping for someone else, you might even end up buying one for yourself!
