SINGAPORE, February 9, 2010 - LG today announced its new LG Mini (LG GD880), a new phone that features a trendsetting design with intelligent features. Expected to be available in Singapore in June, LG Mini will be the smallest and slimmest 3.2-inch full touchscreen phone on the market.

Thanks to a slim, compact form factor, the LG Mini fits nicely in a shirt pocket or small handbag. On the front, a large 3.2 inch touchscreen (16:9 aspect ratio) extends all the way to the edge of the phone, giving it a smooth finish.

Besides a range of features such as speedy web browsing and fast push email, the LG Mini also includes several unique aspects, including Social Network Connect, which makes keeping in touch with online friends easy. Facebook and Twitter are instantly accessible through built-in applications and a Social Network Feed provides instant and automatic updates of friends and family members on the home screen. Updates also appear next to each contact in the Social Address Book.

The LG Mini boasts a 5-megapixel camera featuring advanced face detection which allows uploading of sharp, vivid pictures and videos wirelessly to multiple social networks in one simple step. The device also plays music and movies in several popular file formats and even includes an FM radio.

With HSDPA connectivity at 7.2 Mbps and Wi-Fi, the LG Mini can browse the internet at high speed and also provide real-time location information using A-GPS.

The LG Mini will be available in Europe starting in March, followed by other markets, including Singapore. Prices will vary country-to-country and will be announced separately in each market.
