LG has announced its latest 3G mobile phone, the LG u8180, which is another improvement on the best selling phone of the year, the LG u8120. The LG 8180 is a better looking version of both the LG 8120 and its successor the LG 8138 and has a more modern feel. The LG 8180 has two colour screens, internally it has a 65,000 colour screen while the previously monochrome external screen is now also a fantastic colour screen.
The first thing that hits you about the 3G LG u8180 on 3 is size. Compared to all previous 3G video mobile phones, it's tiny. Compared to current state-of-the-art 2G and 2.5G GSM phones it's the same size. Think about that for a moment. This is a top of the range 3G Video Calling mobile phone with built-in 180° swivel camera and yet it's all but the same size as the brand new Motorola V600. The 3G LG 8180 is yet another winner from LG.
Video Calling from 3 is live, two-way video communication between 3 customers, using your 3G LG u8180 mobile phone. Video Calling makes communication both practical and fun because you can now see people and show objects, surroundings and activities in real time as you talk.
Some of the most useful features of the 3G LG 8180 mobile phone are the Locate services from 3, A to B, Quick Map and Find. On request, your 3 mobile phone can work out where you are in Britain and then display your location on a clear, easy to read map using the LG u8180 high resolution screen. Even better, type in a destination address such as a postcode and A to B will give you a straightforward map and direction on how to walk there! In the future this will be expanded to include car journeys by road as well.
