Co-announced during Microsoft's Windows Mobile press conference, LG Electronics (LG) today announced the LG-GM730 aka the LG Eigen (which we spotted earlier today already); the newest handset in LG's smartphone line-up, which makes advanced smartphone features easy to use. It's said to be the first smartphone to use Windows Mobile 6.5 (as soon as available) and also integrates with LG's advanced 3D S-Class User Interface. The company has recently signed a special contract with Microsoft, allowing them to be the first manufacturer of a phone with the new version of Windows Mobile. On top of Windows Mobile, the LG-GM730 will provide LG's dynamic, direct and intuitive S-Class User Interface.

 "The combination of Windows Mobile and our new 3D S-Class User Interface will make the LG-GM730 the most functional and easiest to use smartphone ever created," said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. "This phone is a springboard for us. We will launch a number of smartphones this year; most of them will follow this same winning formula."

Built-around a 3D cube layout, S-Class User Interface provides four customizable home screens. The simple flick of a finger instantly turns the cube from one side to the next. S-Class User Interface eliminates nested menus wherever possible, providing more direct access to features and applications. Even setup for e-mail is simplified, requiring just one click. Internet Explorer 6.0 enhances the web experience.

The LG-GM730 also incorporates LG's signature style, with a slim, seamless profile and smooth, stylish rounded edges. At just 11.9 mm it is the perfect on-the-go. Despite its small size, it still manages to pack in all the essential productivity software, with room to spare.
More technical specifications will be announced soon and the LG-GM730 will be available for purchase in the first half of 2009.

Cheers ~ Arne
