LG has just announced the GW300 handset, a messaging and social networking powerhouse, that comes in a fresh form factor and sports a full QWERTY keyboard. There’s also a 2.4 inch landscape display on board and a 5-way nav pad for simple browsing.
On board the device you’ll find a Facebook app similar to the one on LG GW520, offering instant and direct access to all social statuses live. LG GW300 also comes with LiveSquare, a service that displays your favorite contacts on the homescreen as avatars and lets you know about your friends’ messages or updates.
The handset will be sold by O2 and Orange in electric blue and vibrant red respectively, plus its specs sheet also includes threaded SMS, email, WAP 2.0, a 2 megapixel camera with digital zoom, FM radio, an MP3 player, 10MB of user memory, a microSD card slot and Bluetooth 2.1.
