The actual specs of the upcoming LG KE850 haven't been revealed yet, so we'll just have to make do with these screens and then wildly speculate. The KE850 appears to be completely based on a touchscreen interface, with send, end and confirm being the only "real" buttons. There's speculation that it might end up being a member of the Chocolate line of cellphones given its shape and color. So, those pics?

There's no release date yet for the KE850, so expect more, you know, news once LG gets its act together. Hopefully the touchscreen works a little better than some of LG's other touch-sensitive products.

That thing looks a lot like the Moto Ming, from the face-dominating touchscreen, the placement of the hardkeys below and along the sides, down to the main interface with the clock and four touch buttons. Screen, however, looks slightly longer, although perhaps that's an illusion resulting from the phone's rectangular shape. The corners are also a lot sharper, and it's noticeably thinner overall.

I'm intrigued. Those tabs running along the side (in the 2nd pic) are a really nice touch. I really hope that it's hiding a stylus somewhere in it's behind, which would be imperative for a touchscreen phone like this. I couldn't tell from the photo they have of it's back. I also like that the camera has flash, I wonder how many megapixels it's capable of?

Okay, if they throw in the ability to edit documents, I think I might start lusting after this bad boy!!!
