LG GM750

The LG GM750 is a Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone, very closely related to the existing GM730 handset.

Featuring a 3" 240 x 400 pixel display, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, 3.5G support, WiFi and GPS, the new GM750 shares almost every hardware feature with its predecessor. The main difference is that the GM750 comes with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional preloaded, where the GM730 is a Windows Mobile 6.1 device.. although it can be upgraded.

Looking closely at the scant available information on the GM750, it looks like is also has a larger 1500 mAh battery and possibly a slightly improved screen. Inside is the same Qualcomm 528 MHz processor that powers the vast majority of Windows Mobile smartphones.

So what's all the fuss about? To be honest, it's hard to say. Windows Mobile 6.5 is definitely an improvement over the earlier version, but we understand that GM730 users can upgrade the operating system if they want. As with most recent LG Windows devices, this comes with the S-Class user interface which makes it nicer to use. There are certainly rival phones that are just as good as this though.

Just in case you're not familiar with the current version of Windows Mobile, then we should say that it is a significant improvement in terms of usability over older versions, and it comes with "pocket" versions of Microsoft Office applications, plus support for Microsoft Exchange push email, a capable multimedia player (plus an FM radio), and a wide variety of other applications can be bought and downloaded.

The LG GM750 can also talk directly to social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Picasa and it also supports YouTube and other video sites.

The GM750 comes with HSDPA data with a maximum download speed of up to 7.2 Mbps, or alternatively you could use the GM750's WiFi capabilities. LG say that the phone measures 109.8 x 53.5 x 12.9mm which is a bit more compact than the iPhone, but it does come with a smaller display.

The LG GM750 is exclusive to the Vodafone network until the end of the year. Prices range from about €380 for a SIM-free version to free when taken with a contract. It does seem to offer pretty good value for money when you consider the specifications, and it is a useful addition to Vodafone's somewhat moribund lineup of phones.
