Berkshire, UK, September 24th, 2009 - LG Electronics (LG), a global leader and technology innovator in mobile communications, today announces its latest handset to join LG’s rapidly expanding social networking range. The new LG GW300 brings a fresh form factor to its line-up of handsets with a full QWERTY keypad, 2.4” landscape display and a five-way navigational pad for simple browsing.
The made for messaging handset features a designated Facebook application similar to the LG GW520*, providing instant and direct access enabling users to maintain their all important online social statuses in real-time. The LG GW300 contains LiveSquare, which allows all your favourite contacts to show up on your homescreen as avatars, so when a friend sends you a message, their avatar will immediately let you know. With a 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio, Bluetooth and expandable memory up to 4GB the LG GW300 is also ideal for storing multimedia files.
“It didn’t come as a surprise last week that Facebook announced its user number now totals 300 million, as the mobile industry is continuing to experience consumer demand for social networking focused devices. The new LG GW300 maintains LG’s dedication to bringing innovative social networking handsets to the market as they increasingly become the central communication point for avid social network users” says Jeremy Newing, head of marketing, LG Mobile UK and Ireland.
Available from O2 in electric blue and in vibrant red on Orange the LG GW300 is a bright addition to LG’s social networking range.
