A recent partnership between LG and Microsoft has resulted in a new handset that is great for keeping people connected, it has been advised.

Following the unveiling of the new LG GM730 this week at an industry event in Singapore, a spokesman for the latter company has praised the device and its compatibility with the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system (OS).

Andy Lees, senior vice-president of communications business for Microsoft, said the integration of the OS with the phone's own 3D S-Class user interface had been successful.

"Combining LG's technology and design leadership with the Windows Mobile platform has resulted in a great phone that will enable consumers to stay connected with people, information and services they care about," he added.

The South Korean manufacturer also announced the launch of a new messaging-focused model called the LG Neon - although it has not yet been confirmed if the handset will get a UK release.
