LG Arena – 3G iPhone With Cameras?
I know what you’re thinking – “Surly that’s a re-badged iPhone?”.
Nope, although it does look strangely familiar, it is in fact the LG Arena.
Apparently it’s packing GSM/UMTS/HSDPA/3G connectivity, along with a high-res 3-inch 800×480 display (dunno if resistive or capacitive) and it is to have someÂ kinda mobile TV.
It’s also said to have a 5 megapixel camera, with a â€œ3D interfaceâ€ as well as a front-facing camera too.
“The direct, intuitive and dynamic S-Class UI will be unlike anything that has appeared on a mobile phone before. With rich 3D graphics, touch sensitivity and exciting multimedia capabilities, it will truly make ARENA a fully loaded multimedia phone”, said Dr. Skott Ahn, president and CEO of LG.
The Arena apparently measures just 11.5mm thick, which makes it a touch slimmer than the iPhone and it could be out in Europe as soon as next month, more specifically, on T-Mobile Germany for starters.
The reported specs of the LG Arena:
- Tri-band GSM/UMTS/HSDPA
- FM Radio
- 1000mAh battery – 300 hours standby, and a talk time just shy of 4 hours
- 5 megapixel camera
- 3â€³ WVGA (800Ã—480) touchscreen
