LG GW300

The LG GW300 is the first BlackBerry-style device that we have seen from this Korean manufacturer.

But where other recent LG designs have impressed us, the GW300 really does not. Closely resembling the two-year-old BlackBerry Curve 8300 in terms of specification, the GW300 seems dated before it even gets to market.

So what does the GW300 offer us? WiFi? Nope. 3G? Nope. A touchscreen? Nope. A high-resolution camera? Nope. GPS? Nope. A 3.5mm audio socket? Yeay.. we have a winner!

What we have with the GW300 is a GSM-only device with a QWERTY keyboard, a 2.4" QVGA display, a 2 megapixel camera, media player, FM radio, microSD expandable memory, Bluetooth and of course the 3.5mm audio socket.

But there's much more. Well, perhaps not much more.. but there's a Facebook application, email client and web browser. Terrific.

Perhaps it will be cheap. That at least would be something, and the "300" number does seem to place it quite a way down the product range.

LG say that the GW300 should be available in September, although we suspect that not many of our readers will care.
