LG launches KT520

Berkshire, UK, 24 July, 2008 - LG Electronics, a worldwide technology and design leader in mobile communications, today announces the UK launch of the KT520, a stylish prepay mobile handset.
Boasting easy-to-use functionality, the KT520 is a slider handset packed full of features including a 3.2 megapixel camera, complete with autofocus, MP3 player, GPRS and Bluetooth. With ample internal storage (45 MB) and the ability to store an additional 35MB via a MicroSD card, users can load and listen to all of their favourite songs, as well as save a multitude of photos.

Jeremy Newing, head of LG mobile marketing, LG Electronics says, "While there is major consumer demand for premium handsets such as the LG Secret, there are still many people out there who opt for a phone with basic functionality.
