Vodafone and LG Electronics have announced the launch of the LG GM750, a new device based on Windows Mobile 6.5 from 6 October.
With LG’s S-Class user-interface and fast internet browsing via Vodafone’s high-speed mobile broadband network or WiFi, information is always at the user’s fingertips. Its large 3.0″ full touchscreen makes it easy to navigate while browsing the internet, writing text messages and memos, or getting directions with its in-built GPS navigation function.
The intuitive user-interface on Windows Mobile 6.5 is easily customisable so Vodafone customers can personalise their phone to their own particular style. Using 3rd party applications, customers can change the look and feel with a personal background or designer themes and personalise the home screen so the information they need, such as weather reports, the latest traffic information or stock prices, is always easy to find. Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync email ensures you never need miss an email again, be it from your personal or work account. As one of a new generation of Windows phones, the GM750 Smartphone is poised to take advantage of future Vodafone services.
Hmmmm – so do we like? Well, everyone seems to be sticking their own UI layer on top of WinMo these days, even if (as in this case) it’s the latest cut with WinMo 6.5. LG can probably lay claim to doing it well, as they seem to have a relatively well-defined UI strategy, but as per usual, the proof of the pudding will be in the tasting – or rather the touching in this case (in an entirely appropriate manner, of course!).
The LG GM750 will be available in store initially in seven countries – Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the UK, and also in France through SFR, with further countries following soon after.
