LG KP500

 LG announces in Seoul, Korea the launch of LG KP500 with an affordable introduction price. This attractively-priced full touch screen handset is complete with the latest touch technology and features found in the existing high-end full touch screen handsets currently available on the market.

“The feedback we receive from consumers around the world indicate that there’s more people who wish to try the latest touch screen phones,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We want to reach out to this group and LG KP500 is our answer to deliver a high quality full touch screen phone that is easy to use and much easier to afford. Within reach of many consumers, we hope that more people will experience the joy of using the latest touch screen technology with LG KP500.”

The LG KP500 will be available at the end of October 2008 in Europe and then on to the rest of the world. The price of the LG KP500 will be announced during the launch.

 

 Press Release:

 Since the first full touch screen phone, the PRADA Phone by LG arrived on the market, LG has been advancing touch screen technology in new models of phones that suit different consumer needs such as the LG Viewty, the top-selling 5 mega-pixel camera phone with full touch screen providing a complete new viewing enjoyment. With continuous advances in touch screen technology, the LG KP500 has LG's latest precision refinements for when the human touch meets the vivid digital screen.
From LG's experience in producing stylish and sophisticated handsets, the LG KP500 also receives the same attention to the finer details.  Slim-profiled and lightweight, the LG KP500 comes in black, Vandyke brown, Anodizing silver, and Elegant gold, giving consumers more choices for their personal tastes.



As a slim and stylish handset, the LG KP500 is a GSM phone which can operate in four frequency bands, giving it a far-reaching reception range, and upon its global release, the LG KP500 can be used in 39 languages. But no matter what language one speaks, the vivid and intuitive user interface of the LG KP500 is simple for anyone to understand with vivid icons on the wide 3 inch screen.

Keeping in touch with friends has never been easier as the LG KP500 has the latest UI that allows the user to attach a friend's photo for the speed dial feature and then page through the portraits and touch the friend to be called. "We optimized the user interface to keep the tactile operations smooth and simple which is necessary when you’re opening up a new technology to a wide group of people," said Skott Ahn. With such ease of use, LG expects to broaden the base of touch screen handset consumers around the world.

The LG KP500 has an embedded stylus pen concealed in the base that can be easily removed for the advanced handwriting recognition program that allows the user to write memos and text messages, and also edit photo images by touching the screen with the pen tip. The QWERTY onscreen keyboard slides into view when the LG-KP500 is held horizontally, and the auto rotating display always shifts images or documents for proper viewing no matter which way the handset is turned.

Also packed into the LG KP500 are motion sensor games that are played by turning, flipping, and shifting the handset for a more active and fun gaming experience.

the phones are starting to look almost the same since the launch of the iPhone. You know, smooth edges and the large touchscreen display!

But how else would the phones evolve right? Triangular with a square screen?

Truth be told, its just how things worked out. Long, big screen and controls on the bottom. That's just how things work the best.

I hope this is the first non-windows touch screen Multi media phone.

I searched for such phone long time and got this. But non-zoomable camera at 3MP resolution, and non-changeable themes are disappointing. Not to forget the headphones jack. I wanted it like previous phone Motorokr E8. 8)

LG cookie works best eventhough it lacks flash for its camera the pictures are taken crisp and vivid. some say camera is not good but when i transfer all the pics i took from my cookie the pictures are great!! it has a zoom!! music audio is high and the response of the phone is prompt!!!! il give 5 out of 10 for this although it lack some advance features which is unnecessary but still its really good!

whilst on camera go onto the settings bit and i think its on the one that changes the size of the photo and try each one but one of them has a zoom! it comes up on the bottom of the screen when you take photos!

There is no themes available. Thats the only downside.

There IS zoom, but you have to change the picture size to 620 and under.

i just got my lg cookie two days ago and so far im absolutely happy with it, i guess my only complaint is the lack of flash in the camera, if it had one i guess it would be perfect. To me its even better than the iphone because i hate itunes and the cost its so much lower. I strongly recommend it!

When I take a picture by SE K790i, the photo tends to blue (bluish). I like Cookie's coz it's camera makes a natural colour.
This phone is best buy with amazing touch-screen. But why the font of inbox sms is very big ?

All I have to say that if you are going to purchase the cookie, think twice about the quality.
+ points :
1. Low price range.
2. Asthetic look.
- points :
1. Phone gets hanged often after certain period of use.
2. Software is not working properly.
3. Touch pad is not enough sensitive.

well yeah i have this phone, and i'm not too fond of it, you have to press pretty hard on it for it to recognize things, and texting is slow and hard work. :3

the camera is very low quality, but it does have zoom. the games/aps are basic also, and the media player is nothing special, not the best touch phone out there :-x

This is one of the best product from LG. Need to improve a lot, Themes & zoom are to be enhanced and sideways screen should be applicable to all applications. it can be seen only when messaging....

I do agree. LG KP500 is quite good, just for clarification, the camera may be zoomed in and out but only applicable in 320x240, 400x240(W), and 640x480, just go to camera settings.. :eek:

You may also change the font size of the font, just hit New Message, then the rectangular object besides SMS, then hit Writing font size. 8)

LG KP500 is indeed good, but certainly not as good as Nokia. That's my opinion though.. :D
