LG has unveiled the LG GW520, a social networking device that adds something to the standard messaging experience offered by most cell phones. The GW520 features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that makes messaging convenient and a unique "push" social networking element to help people keep in touch.
With high-speed 3G HSDPA data connectivity, users can grab their email and attachments faster than ever. A 3 megapixel camera can take photographs that will appear vivid on the device's 2.8-inch touchscreen display.
The phone also includes LG's LiveSquare, which allows users to add custom animated characters to their homescreen to represent the friends and family they call the most. The GW520 'pushes' social networking updates to users so they're able to instantly see what their favorite people are up to, as well.
The LG GW520 will be available across most UK networks in June.
