Fashionable, affordable hijinks.
I suspect fashionable yet affordable handsets are going to be increasingly popular in these coming months of (s)greedy banker created(/s) economic turmoil…
Seeking not to lighten our already featherweight pockets then is news Orange has scored LG’s rather attractive entry level KF300. The 16.2mm thick clamshell/flip/insert-your-favourite-format-description-here handset isn’t going to knock anyone’s socks off technologically with a 2MP camera, 14MB of native memory or missing WiFi, HSDPA and GPS but it is a rather attractive design and has all the basics covered.
By this I’m taking about a nice 2.2in QVGA 262k colour LCD, 1.3in external 128 x 160 display, MP3 player, microSD expansion slot, FM radio and Bluetooth while at just 97g it is as light in your pocket as on it.
“With its large screen, easy-to-use shortcut keys, variable font sizes and basic menu structure, the LG-KF300 is designed for users who just want to call and text but still have a strong to desire to own a slim, attractive handset,” said LG UK Mobile Marketing Head Jeremy Newing. “We are delighted to announce the LG-KF300’s exclusivity with Orange, which sees another great addition to LG’s growing value range.”
Going for free on selected Orange £15pm contracts, those (s)ignorant(/s) fortunate enough to be free of the growing smartphone obsession certainly could do a lot worse…
