New Delhi, April 03, 2008 - LG Electronics India Pvt. Ltd., a worldwide technology and design leader in mobile communications, today announced the launch of its 2008 iF product design award winning LG KF600, a new mobile phone that is as feature rich and easy to use as it is stylish, thanks to its unique InteractPad™.
The handset is targeted at young consumers who like stylish handsets that are fun and easy to use. The KF600 boasts of a sleek design and dynamic graphic interface themes. It has eight integrated graphic themes that are fun and easy to use. Each gives the phone a different character that can act as an extension of its owner’s personality. Also, the InteractPad™ replaces physical navigation keys with context-specific virtual keys that change to fit the task at hand. This new interface comes in response to the need for a simple way to navigate through the multitudinous features on today’s mobile phones. The handset also has a scratch resistant screen, making it a perfect mix of look, technology, functionality and features.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Anil Arora, Business Group Head, GSM, LGEIL said, “The LG KF600 and the InteractPad™ reflect LG’s commitment in making its handsets easier to use through improved user interface technology. Usability is truly at the centre of this handset’s design and it represents LG’s latest achievement in making phones that connect with their users. This handset offers a mere glimpse into a newly emerging trend in the mobile market. LG is researching and developing new ways to improve usability and will continue focus on features that add practical benefits for users.”
The LG KF600’s InteractPad™ and its virtual menu keys show the exact keys a user needs to complete the task at hand eliminating distractions. This is far more flexible than standard hardware keys and eliminates the need to memorize exactly which key performs what function. These virtual keys are also larger and better spaced than physical keys, improving accuracy. The InteractPad™ is an ideal interface for controlling multimedia features like the LG KF600’s digital audio player, camera and video camera. Because its controls are not tied to physical buttons, each of these functions has a custom interface that makes it incredibly intuitive to use.
The LG KF600’s powerful multimedia features include a 3 mega-pixel camera, MP3 player, video recording, FM radio, Bluetooth and more. Its ergonomic trapezoidal shape complements the phone’s sleek, glossy finish perfectly. Interface is ideal for multimedia features like playing music, taking pictures, recording video and more.
The LG KF600 is available in the Indian market at a price tag of Rs. 14,990 only.
