LG launches new smartphone trio

LG has a number of smartphone solutions available

Consumers recycling mobile phones to buy a new smartphone may have had their decision made more difficult this week.

This is because LG has announced three handsets that will hit the market in the next few weeks that will take on devices like the BlackBerry Curve 8900 and Nokia E71.

All of the devices will use Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system and two will be equipped with a full qwerty keyboard, while the third will offer a full touchscreen interface.

LG explained that each would be rolled out across Europe, the US and Asia, but would be targeted at very different consumers.

Dr Skott Ahn, president and chief executive officer of the firm's mobile division, commented: "This initial launch is a strong testament that LG is committed to offering a spectrum of choices for our broad range of customers."

This week the company also announced details of its latest entry into the Chocolate series of devices, the LG-BL40.
