LG’s new phone pleases the arena

lg-arena

Lucky Goldstar has pre-empted Mobile World Congress, just like many others already have and no doubt many more will this week by unveiling to the unsuspecting public a new handset they’ll be taking to Barcelona next week. It’s a mobile phone they’re calling the LG Arena or the LG-KM900, if you want to get all technical.

This new mobile was actually leaked on Friday, much to the perturbed people over at their PR company so we’ve subsequently learnt this week.

LG is touting this phone as having a ‘groundbreaking’ 3D user interface, which we can’t really see in the 2D images so we’re not entirely convinced at this point it is all that innovative. The proof, as they say, will be in the pudding or at the first hand experience of the device.

The LG Arena will be officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress, with all the accompanying delights of HSDPA, WIFI and A-GPS and the ability to even playback DivX video. Wahoo!

It appears from little we’ve been informed to date, it’s a touch screen based phone much like their Renoir. It’s been reported elsewhere the phone only has a 5megapixel camera, where all their latest ‘flagship’ models have 8MP and this supposedly falls into that aforementioned category. However, we’re sure they’ll spin this somehow, someway and somewhere to make ground on the issue.

We’ll all just have to wait and see what comes out of their press conference next week. Expect us though to bring you the full skinny, the complete low down, the full enchilada – everything you needed to know but were too afraid to ask about the Arena.
