Budget-Minded LG GW300 Messaging Phone with QWERTY Keyboard
At first glance, you may think that the LG GW300 is yet another Windows Mobile smartphone in the same ilk as a Motorola Q or a Samsung Blackjack. That is not the case. It may have a full QWERTY keyboard, but the LG GW300 is just a regular old phone.
Well, that’s not completely fair. The whole point of this QWERTY-packing handset is that it has been built from the ground up as a messaging phone. With the full QWERTY keyboard, you’ll have no problem busting out those e-mail messages and updating your Facebook (using the built-in app).
As a decidedly lower-end phone, the LG GW300 gets a standard 2.4″ QVGA display, Bluetooth, USB 2.0, and GSM/GPRS/EDGE. You won’t find any fancy GPS, 3G, or accelerometers on this puppy. There appears to be a camera, but LG was not forthcoming with the specs.
Information regarding the availability and pricing of the LG GW300 has not been released either, but I’m thinking that it’s going to hit up the lower end of the market (with a price to match) before the end of the year.
