The new LG GW520 Phone is mentioned as a social networking device that comes with push updates from social networking sites and both business and personal email. But I’m not clear what social networking they mean, is it facebook and alike?. Highlights: 2.8″ full touchscreen, Full slide-out QWERTY keypad, Push email via Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, HSPDA 7.2, 3G enabled, WAP 2.0 browser, 3-megapixel camera. LG GW520 should be available this month (June 2009).
“Mobile communications have been about more than just voice based calls for a long time, but consumers are now demanding more than just SMS and IM services. They want the kind of messaging and social networking features previously the preserve of high end handsets on a wide range of models, and that is what LG is offering. We recognise the demand for mobile devices that enable quick and easy interaction with social network sites as a growing market. LG aspires to be at the forefront of this with the launch of these great mobile phones.” said Jeremy Newing, head of marketing, LG Mobile UK.
