LG KS360 Specs and Things

I’m getting quite a few questions after my news piece about LG’s qwerty text-a-phone so here’s a closer look and a full spec list just for you 🙂

The black and blue front fascia and disjointed D-Pad made up of five round buttons is kinda funky.

Two more round buttons map to the softmenus.

The buttons are kinda small but their raised shaping should mean that they are still quite usable.

Two raised pressure pads give you Call and End features, while two more provide a Cancel function and link to a dial pad

The dial pad is pretty cool.

Once called up, the screen suddenly becomes touch sensitive complete with haptic feedback. It works really well, but the screen is only touch sensitive for this one application.

Nestled away inside the phone is the main selling point – the full QWERTY pad!!

The keyboard keeps the blue vibe.

The embedded number pad keys sit against a grey background as does a diamond-shaped arrangement of embedded cursor keys. The OK and softmenu keys are grey, the Fn key golden, but the remainder of the keys are blue.

When you slide the keyboard out the screen flips into wide format and you are ready to type.

The keys are well spaced but they could be better raised from the backplate.

The camera is a 2mp job but without flash or autofocus.
