We know that the phone market is getting tough and that to cut through you have to have a product that is seen to be up to scratch. But a transparent phone? Well LG is banking on a new LG GD900 Crystal mobile phone aka the first transparent phone to deliver them the results they are looking for.
It has an 8 megapixel autofocus camera that displays photos on a high resolution 3.5 inch WVGA LCD touch screen and with the auto-rotating display, photos look great every time. The handset also has a MP3 player and can hold up to 32GB of music, photos or data using the expandable memory card slot. The LG GD900 Crystal is Wi-Fi enabled allowing user to connect to the internet via wireless hotspots and it also supports Bluetooth 2.1 for secure, high-speed connectivity to other devices.
The crystal clear keypad also doubles up as a second touch screen interface. This allows you to swiftly swipe through the home screen by acting like a mouse pad for web browsing as well making use of the handwriting recognition and gesture shortcuts.
The LG Crystal uses the same gold winning 3D S-Class interface, as seen on the LG Arena. This features a spinning cube interface allowing you to flick around on the screen with each face on the cube consisting of an aspect of the menu e.g. contacts.
The GD900’s browser does a good job of displaying complex pages and offers a speedy download and is even faster when near a Wi Fi hotspot, however one of the frustrating things about the Crystal is that there is no GPS.
