It was a great opportunity for us to be able to take part in the launch of the LG Arena KM900 blogger event last night in London. We know from some of your messages that there’s been quite alot of interest in the phone since it was first announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), we’re happy to tell you all that the Arena will officially be available by the end of this weekend.
We were told at the event by LG Sales and Marketing Director, John Barton that the Arena will be arriving the UK mobile networks, Orange and T-Mobile, not surprisingly Phones4u and the Carphone Warhouse will also be involved in retailing.
The LG GD900 Crystal which LG debuted at the GSMA World Congress, will be the world’s first phone with a transparent design handset. Not everything on the slider handset is transparent but the rear slider is translucent and the keypad gives off a brilliant glittering glow. Specs on technical details on the LG GD900 was limited, but LG will make sure to bring out the specs for review later this year.
Sony Ericsson’s latest Idou was revealed this week at the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. Probably the most appealing feature is that the Idou boasts a 12.1-megapixel camera, of course, this means SE is now further leading the market with their Cybershot technology equipped phones. But to me I think that is the only thing that I like about the Idou and nothing else. The video embedded below features how the new user interface works on the full touch screen flagship, the picture browser works exactly like the iPhone’s, which kind of puts me off as there is nothing new or creative about it.
You may already have seen the gallery we put up last week of the TG01, Toshiba’s iPhone killer in which they were so excitied to unveil that they couldn’t wait til the Mobile World Congress. I know you may have already seen a previous hands on video but this one to follow after the jump shows more clearly how the device will work and of course all the fuzz about those strips! 🙂
We only spoke about it a week ago and now LG has officially announced their latest flagship – the LG Arena KM900 at the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona. I know some have been asking us when exactly the Arena will be available in the UK, we can now confirm that it will arrive very shortly next month! Meanwhile, we’ve got an official demo video of the new and very exciting 3D cube user interface (UI) for you to see right after the break.

Sony Ericsson has just previewed their latest iPhone killer, scheduled to appear in summer 2009, during the company’s press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The full touchscreen phone called Idou (Sony Ericsson does seem to have plans to change this code name to a more commercial friendly name in the future!) features a 3.5-inch touchscreen and a massive 12.1-megapixel camera, all running on a Symbian OS, more details to be revealed very soon! Quick gallery after the jump…
When we were sent the LG Renoir KC910 for some hands on review, we were already well impressed with LG’s ability to have made such major all round multimedia improvements in the new LG Viewty successor. But now it seems LG’s plans are official and they will be taking that even further for the coming 2009. As you will have heard, just last week, a picture of a new full touchscreen phone, the LG Arena KM900 surfaced. We can now be fairly confident that this is true and this latest flagship called the LG Arena will have some very stunning features and even more so, some features which have not yet even been seen on mobile phones (not that I know of)! The LG Arena will have a unique user interface that takes the form of a 3D cube. This new cube-based layout provides four customisable home screens for direct access to all features. This makes accessing music, movies, pictures much more easier than most phones, so if you thought the LG Renoir’s updated user interface already showed vast improvement, the LG Arena’s user interface will definitely strike you as something quite unique.
Though we don’t know all about its specs at the moment, this will be revealed in greater detail in due course – Mobile World Congress, February 16th at 2.00pm (CET). All we do know from our friends at the LG Blog is the below, though I wish I could find out more about whether its got an amazing camera sooner!
