Expected to be available in several European markets including Germany and Italy in the first half of 2006, LG has offered a glimpse into their new V9000 TV Phone. LG have not disclosed further information concerning the expected pricing and specifications of the V9000 to date.
Following in the footsteps of Samsung's SGH-P900 and SGH-P910, the rather obese LG V9000 is equipped with a high-resolution, 2.2-inch slide-up screen which swivels into landscape mode for DMB-T TV viewing. It's not among the brightest we've seen, but reception and performance proved impeccable - and as an added bonus it's also capable of recording live TV to its 30 MB of onboard memory or microSD cards. Other highlights include a 1.3 Megapixel camera and Bluetooth, with availability slated for May 2006.
The model is compatible with Europe's GSM (2G)/ GPRS (2.5G)/ UMTS(WCDMA) (3G) services, which account for 75 percent of the global handset market, and with terrestrial DMB which has been developed in Korea. With its unique wide-swing 2.2 inch LCD screen, the LG-V9000 gives users a quality TV viewing experience for up to three consecutive hours and users are also able to enjoy high-speed multimedia service. Its Mobile XD EngineTM is the key to the screen's high resolution.
