Generally speaking, the feature set of the LG F9200 is nothing special. There is, however, one obvious thing that sets it apart from most of the other handsets in its price bracket - the inclusion of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
The LG F9200 is a slight upgrade to the already released F9100, with the only a few new features, such as a VGA camera and updated styling. Though it might not show up on the spec sheet, there is another major change made from the F9100. The new F9200 can do most everything while in landscape mode, something the F9100 could not. The features that it shares with its older brother are not too bad for a low-end handset: dual-band compatibility, instant messaging support, 65k color STN LCD, and Java games are all there. To be honest though, this handset will be bought by messaging addicts, and the QWERTY keypad will likely be the only feature that will get their attention anyway.
The LG F9200 is available now from Cingular for US$149.99 with a two-year service agreement.
