LG KF510 Touch Slim Slider Handset Announced

LG KF510 Touch Slim Slider Handset AnnouncedLG have announced the imminent launch of their stylish, slimline slider phone, the LG-KF510.

Kitted out in a “Stardust Dark Gray” or “Sunset Red” finish, the LG-KF510 has the waistline of a supermodel at just 10.9mm thick. Those fearing a few beers/back pocket/sit down/doh! phone borked scenario should find some comfort in LG’s claims that it’s a tough little bleeder, with the handset strengthened by a metal frame and the display being made from tempered glass.

LG have described the phone’s interface as offering a tactile and visually interactive user experience, including “captivating” animations based on LG’s ‘Interactive Touch Lighting’ and an ‘Auto Luminance Control’ function offering energy savings.

The LG-KF510 will be shimmying down the product runway at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2008 (formerly 3GSM World Congress) on February 11-24 in Barcelona, Spain.

Skott Ahn, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communication Company, was ready and willing to share the product love, “We will showcase an additional touch-based mobile lineup by maximizing user friendliness at the show. LG-KF510 will be sold in the global markets from March at a price range of between $300 and $350 each depending on the region.”

The LG-KF510 will be available worldwide, launching in March 2008 in most major global markets.
