LG’s highlighted products at the Mobile Asia 2008 include:

LG Viewty (LG-KU990): The LG Viewty, a professional-level camera phone, includes features found on many high-end stand-alone cameras, including a manual focus option, an image stabilizer and an ISO up to 800 for indoor or night shooting. The phone, equipped with 5.0 Megapixel camera, also records video at up to 120 frames per second, the highest frame speed ever for a handset camera, which can be edited and uploaded directly to YouTube. A 3.0-inch touch screen and Mobile XD™ engine provide a wider and more vivid display while a jog wheel on the back maximizes usability. An attached stylus allows users to digitally “write” on photos and edit files.

LG-KF600: The LG-KF600 is so intuitive that it seems almost to read your mind. The phone’s InteractPad™ replaces physical buttons with virtual navigation keys that feed-forward menus that are tailored to fit the task at hand. The InteractPad™ eliminates the need to memorize which key does what when using the phone’s 3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, video recorder and even when making phone calls or sending text messages. The LG-KF600 is as stylish as it is functional, with a high-gloss finish and easy to grip trapezoidal shape. The phone won a 2008 iF Product Design Award.
