3 takes LG's music handset
LG is hoping to take mobile music technology a step further with the introduction of its latest model.
The U400 Neo features a scratch wheel capable of adding percussion and sound effects to tracks. With MP3 players now the norm on most new handsets, the phone looks set to compete with some of the edgier music handsets on the market such Sony Ericsson's range of Walkman phones.
The handset is designed in a similar style to LG's KG800 Chocolate but is not part of the manufacturer's Black Label fashion range. It will be available exclusively on 3 and is due to hit stores in the first week of July.
