LG ‘Touch Web’ Handset Targets You-Know-What

Will its ultra high res screen be enough?

LG is clearly obssessed with outdoing guess what…

The ‘Touch Web’ is the company’s latest attempt at the big 3in touchscreen candybar (an iPhone-esque approach it has tried a lot recently) and with a whopping 800 x 480 native resolution it may just turn a few heads.

Aside from this flagship feature however the Touch Web also holds its own with T-DMB mobile TV, 3G connectivity (it isn’t said, but there’s a camera on the front facia), a 3MP camera on the back with anti-shake, Bluetooth 2.0 and a microSD memory expansion slot. Other vitals such as onboard memory, WiFi, size and weight have been curiously left off (never a good sign) considering the handset will launch in Korea next month for approx £300.

That said, given the selection of T-DMB (the Euro standard is DVB-H)) I suspect we won’t be seeing it make the long haul trip over to the UK anyway. Still, given Korea’s test bed-like status for the rest of the world I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest to find the Touch Web becomes the ‘inspiration’ for a number of Q3/Q4 handsets on our chilly and rainy Isle.
