Is the iPod scroll-wheel that great for navigation? LG seems to think so, and is releasing the U400 slider phone with an off-center scroll-wheel. It's got 3G video calling, Bluetooth, stereo speakers, 2 megapixel camera and a microSD slot for added storage.
The finish is the same as the LG Chocolate phone, but weighs a little bit more. Also, when you're playing MP3s you can use the scroll-wheel to make scratching noises. Adjusting the volume would have made more sense, but who are we to judge?
CNET thinks this is going to be launched sometime next week in the UK, but we'll update when we get a firm date.
