In this video view I want to follow the previous video view, showing you some more high- and lowlights of the Vodafone LG KS20.
First of all the Google Maps implementation which LG has implemented to work perfectly with Vodafone Germany's cellular network. Even if the LG KS20 doesn't features a GPS receiver you can use the inbuilt Google Maps application to localize yourself through the Vodafone 2G and 3G network. That's pretty handy (even if I'm sure it's not working in international roaming on other Vodafone networks) as well as the vanilla KS20 will definitely not support this feature.

A lowlight (but who to blame for - LG or Microsoft) is the absence of a thumb-optimized keyboard. The LG KS20 features the standard Windows Mobile input methods only (including the soft-keyboard and Transcriber) which is definitely not designed to be used with the thumb but with the stylus. This makes it inconvenient to write text messages, etc. because you are forced to use the stylus. Here I definitely recommend the installation of one of the either free or commercial thumb-keyboards in addition to make text input easier.

More to come soon - stay tuned.

Cheers ~ Arne
