New Shine announced
LG has unveiled a new version of its popular Shine handset.
The KE770 looks almost identical to the original Shine, but is a bar phone instead of a slider. Feature-wise, the KE770 sports the same two-megapixel camera, 70MB of internal memory, a microSD slot, Bluetooth connectivity and an MP3 player.
LG has not yet confirmed a UK launch date for the handset, which will debut in Russia. A spokesman for LG said: 'A UK launch is not planned yet as we're concentrating on the original Shine and the 3G Shine.'
Separately, Mobile has learned that LG is planning to launch a new range of entry-level handsets within the coming weeks. An industry source said that the working title for one of the handsets was the 'Dimple'.
