LG launched the ‘world’s first transparent phone’, the LG-GD900, at the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona, Spain, today (February 16). The phone will be released in the second quarter of 2009.
The crystal, glass-like phone has a sliding, translucent keypad with a ‘sleek and polished silver body’.
LG said that technology was not compromised when the LG-GD900 was developed, ‘as it lives up to the highest level of technical features expected in a premium calibre handset’. It also has a Bluetooth headset.
LG Mobile UK head of marketing, Jeremy Newing, said: ‘Hot on the heels of another world’s first, the LG Watch Phone, the LG-GD900 creates yet another new category in mobile handset design – transparency. This phone again highlights our commitment to bring new and innovative mobile handsets, with high end features, to market.’
