‘Record sales’ for LG Viewty mobile phone
LG claims the Viewty phone has delivered record sales for the company. The device, often pitched as a low-cost alternative to an iPhone, has notched up 550,000 sales worldwide after two and half months.
LG is also announcing a ‘Dark Silver’ version of the phone which will be on sale by the end of January 2008.
The LG Viewty launched in November last year and includes a five-megapixel camera and a three-inch touch-screen. The new ‘Dark Silver’ Viewty is similar to the black version but with a re-designed jog-wheel to make scrolling the menus easier, following consumer feedback.
LG expects the Viewty to continue to sell well, with up to 10,000 units leaving store shelves daily. More colour choices will also be available this year.
