MWC 2010: LG's Touchscreen GD880 Mini Announced

Korean mobile phone manufacturer LG Electronics has announced its latest touchscreen device in the form of the GD880 Mini. The newest phone from LG boasts of a 3.2-inch full touch display, a 5 megapixel camera and packs in Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi.

The GD880 Mini claims to be the smallest and the slimmest touchscreen handset out there today. Incidentally, this is also the case with the just launched Xperia X10 Mini by Sony Ericsson. In fact, we think the X10 might just win the battle here. A senior official from LG has clarified that the LG Mini has been designed in response to specific requests from their consumers who were unhappy with current full touchscreen phones that are too bulky, clunky and expensive.

Coming back to the features on the device, it supports aGPS, and full HSDPA support. The GD880 Mini will also feature discrete 5.1 multichannel surround sound - thanks to technology from Dolby. This bit, however, is in its early stages only and is being demoed at the MWC for evaluation purposes.

There is no word on the price of this device or details as to when we should be expecting its launch in India. Europe should see the launch of the GD880 Mini next month.
