Korean mobile phone manufacturer LG launched its new C300 Town handset, which has been designed keeping “on the go” and “social networking” in mind.
The C300 Town handset comes equipped with a 2-megapixel camera and a 2.4-inch screen that offers a resolution of 320 by 240 pixels. It also features a QWERTY keypad, Bluetooth, FM radio and an MP3 player.
Socially networking wise, the handset offers Twitter, Facebook and MSN clients. However, there is no WiFi or 3G.
LG Electronics UK marketing director Paul Trueman said that they wanted to dedicate the handset to social networking.
Speaking on the new handset, Trueman said, "We wanted to make social networking quick and easy for busy people on the go, and the LG C300 Town with integrated SNS widgets and a full QWERTY keyboard does just that."
Features of the phone are certainly not going to rock the world, but it should be kept in mind that the C300 Town is a budget phone. It will be available from Orange at £69 on PAYG soon.
The C300 Town will also be available through other handful of retailers, including Phones4U and Tesco.
