More specs of the LG KT610 clamshell

Published by at

The LG KT610 S60 clamshell, announced at Mobile World Congress, has popped up for 'preorder' on Expansys web site, with a fuller spec list than was available at the event.  Read on for highlights and link.

Here's the Expansys description page for the LG KT610.

Information that wasn't previously known includes

  • The KT610's dimensions - at 109mm long it's significantly shorter than the Nokia E90, though of course it's without the benefit of the 800 pixel screen inside the latter! LG's hoping will catch on with the IM/texting crowd  - I suspect it'll come down to price - of which we know nothing yet.
  • The inclusion of the Google app suite (native Maps, Search, etc.) isn't surprising. Now that Google Maps supports GPS, there's less need for LG to perhaps license Nokia Maps etc.
  • Support for WMV videos - although I've a suspicion that this might be a typo from the LG product team!

Comments welcome!
