The GW550 is said to be one of the first smartphones that are being introduced. There said to be 13 total phones in this campaign to be released before the end of 2010. The GW550 is LG’s first ever QWERTY keyboard equiped smartphone and will be available later this year in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
The Winmo 6.5 also feature a new browser engine coupled with Adobe Flash Lite, which I really wish Apple will provide for iPhone.
Winmo 6.5 also introduces Microsoft’s My Phone service where customers can perform automatic backups of photos, music, contacts and text messages to the web for easy access any time from any device.
“This initial launch is a strong testament that LG is committed to offering a spectrum of choices for our broad range of customers,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our work with Microsoft on mobile devices reflects our strategy of offering the best in both hardware and software in all our smartphones.”
The LG Application Store (http://www.lgapplication.com) will offer add-ons for all three devices as well as future LG smartphone devices. The site expects to offer up to 2,000 downloadable applications by the end of the year.
