MWC 2008

LG KF600

Next in line is the European debut of the LG KF600 otherwise known as LG Venus. Its key feature is the InteractPad - a small touch-sensitive display beneath the main screen that is used for navigation, with context-specific virtual keys that change across applications. To enhance the user experience, the InteractPad is haptic-enabled.

The user interface of the LG KF600 takes full advantage of the eight graphic themes designed by graffiti artists Keith Haring, that can remarkably change the look and feel of the device.

While the UI is certainly intriguing, the LG KF600 was a bit of a downer, as the much advertised InteractPad was not that responsive to our touch as we would have liked.

Another serious disadvantage is that when you drag your finger along the touch-sensitive display, the upper slider part gives in as obviously there is no retention mechanism. It proves to be quite a nuisance.

The LG KF600 multimedia capabilities include a 3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, video recording and FM radio. The handset offers Bluetooth 2.0 and a microSD card slot.

Here's a quick video walkthrough of the KF600.

The tri-band slider, with EDGE support but no HSDPA, features a 262K-color 2" QVGA display, the InteractPad is 1.5" 262K-color with a resolution of 240 x 176 pixels. The LG KF600 will be available in pastel pink, shiny pink, wine red and titan.
