The buttonless phone features a touch-sensitive interface and eight gigabyte internal storage as well as a two megapixel camera similar to the iPhone.
The LG phone’s primary differences seem to be an external memory card slot as well as a smaller physical template (99 millimeters long by 54 millimeters wide while the iPhone measures 115 millimeters long and 61 millimeters wide – both devices measure about 12 millimeters thick).
LG’s phone will operate on a tri-band GSM model with EDGE data transmission support.
The device will not be sold in the United States according to LG Electronics spokeswoman Judy Pae.
