After the great success of LG Cookie, which was sold in more than 7 million units till now, LG Electronics announced the launch of yet another touchscreen phone, the all new LG GD510. The company calls this new touchscreen phone, “Pop”.
LG GD510 comes with a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display, a 3.0 megapixel camera with an excellent video recording capabilities, a narrow 4.8 mm bezel, a single button to operate the menu, 8GB of internal memory space, music and video player, connectivity with social networking sites and much more. The LG GD510 is crafted from brushed aluminum which gives it a high-end look.
According to the press release,
LG’s consumer research showed that a large group of consumers wanted the functionality of a full touchscreen phone without the extra bulk and unnecessary features that resulted in higher prices. According to the research, many users were also put off by the complexity of feature-laden phones but still desired the easier navigation and larger screens of full touchscreen phones. The LG GD510 was designed to include the key features these users craved, without the overhead of features they didn’t use.
We gave the LG GD510 an optimized feature set which allowed us to concentrate on making the phone more compact and simpler to use,said Dr. Skott Ahn, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. Our high-end phones like the Black Label Series New LG Chocolate (LG BL40) may be getting all the attention but there’s a gap in the market for affordable touchscreen phones that we want to fill. The LG GD510 delivers all the essentials in communication, multimedia and entertainment and comes in a compact form factor as well.
LG GD510 will be available during mid-October in Europe, followed by other markets. The price of this handset was not yet revealed. Till then you can take a look at the official product movie below.
