LG are sending some serious touchscreen love to South Korea, all in the form of the Touch Web cellphone, a.k.a. LG-LH2300. The touchscreen wonder has a 3-inch display, with a staggering 800 x 480 resolution, as well as a 3MP camera with AF, MicroSD memory slot and a full internet browser, which has incorporated hot keys and a jog wheel for scrolling. The widescreen toting cellphone is expected to retail for 700,000 KRW ($693,) when it begins to ship this April. At present, the device is a South Korea exclusive and there is no word on a Stateside release as yet, but honestly, we wouldn't hold our breath. [Aving]

DISCUSSION

Not to mention a front facing camera. This phone isn't any EDGE phone. It has serious potential, and I'm glad. I own an iPhone, and I think this will only put more pressure on apple to come out with an even better product. Competition is good, and this phone seems like the first true competition with the iPhone for what it is. Too bad we aren't hearing of it coming state-side at all.
