Recently, I was able to get my hands on the LG KT610, a new S60 based smartphone that was announced earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress 2008. This communicator style smartphone opens along the side to reveal its full QWERTY keyboard and internal display. On the outside, a small display makes room for the large numeric keypad and navigation keys. The back of the handset is textured like leather, with a slightly rubbery feel, for enhanced grip.

The LG KT610 is moderately well featured, with a 2 megapixel camera and microSD card slot, in addition to a built-in GPS receiver and Bluetooth 2.0. Powered by Nokia's S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 user interface, the LG is a very pocketable handset. The internal QWERTY keyboard is very well spaced out and a pleasure to use, with 5 full rows and a large d-pad. The left and right softkeys are positioned conveniently beneath the display, as well.

The LG KT610's external display gives users access to core features, allowing them to make use of the most common phone features. However, once you open the handset, the full power of S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 is revealed, with the Webkit-based S60 web browser and a full suite of Google applications built-in, including Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps Mobile, and YouTube.

The LG KT610 should start shipping in select markets soon.
