Regular LG Shine is just not good enough for Japan. How about the gold one? NTT DoCoMo’s hoping that the more luxurious version of the LG’s bestselling phone will be a hit among Japanese consumers. The Chocolate was a success, so why wouldn’t the other device from LG’s Black series?
Anyway, the Japanese LG Shine is pretty much the same as the version for the rest of the world (HSDPA, 2 megapixel camera, microSD slot), except that it also comes with 1-Seg mobile TV receiver so that the local youth can entertain themselves while travelling in their super-fast trains.
