LG has announced the GT505, a social networking-driven phone that looks beyond SMS and IM services for a more comprehensive experience. With 3G data, a vivid display, and a high resolution camera, users will enjoy surfing and sharing on the favorite social networks.
The GT505 features a 3-inch touchscreen display and a 5 megapixel camera for high resolution photography and viewing. Users can browse the Internet with 3G HSDPA speeds or over local networks through a WiFi connection.
The device includes 'push' social networking updates so users can see the latest information from their favorite networks soon after they happen. Users can also update status messages, edit profiles, and add photos directly from the GT505. A GPS chipset and a 30-day free trial of WisePilot mobile navigation service are included.
The LG GT505 will be available on Orange UK in June. Pricing and exact availability has not been announced.
