LG unveils budget touch screen KP-500 handset
LG has announced the launch of the LG-KP500, which it describes as ‘the most affordable full touchscreen handset in the UK’.
The LG-KP500 will be available at the end of October, but LG has released no details on pricing yet. The device has an embedded stylus that allows users to make use of the handset hand writing recognition feature. It also has a QWERTY on-screen keyboard that slides into view when the LG-KP500 is held horizontally.
Jeremy Newing, head of LG mobile marketing, said: ‘Full touchscreen handsets have proved to be popular with UK consumers. As a relatively new technology, it has only been available on premium handsets which inevitably have premium price tags.
‘With our new LG-KP500, we are offering this technology to a broader range of consumers who want a high spec touchscreen device that is easy to use and affordable.’
