LG announces Viewty replacement
Ok, so it doesn't have as fancy a name, but we're sure LG will think something up before it actually hits retail, but the KC910 has a pretty decent feature list. It starts off with an 8Megapixel camera with a Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens and a xenon flash and then moves on to feature such as a built in GPS receiver with geo tagging support for your pictures and we're off to a good start.
The camera also has auto focus, image stabilization, face tracking, smile shot and blink detection, in other words, all the latest buzz words in the compact camera market. You can also record video from with a frame rate ranging from a mere 5 to massive 120fps.
Moving on, we've got a 3in WQVGA (480x272 pixels) touch screen display and with support for Dolby Mobile audio and DivX and XviD movie playback, this might be an iPhone beater when it comes to watching movies. The GPS receiver supports A-GPS and LG provides a piece of software called "Jogging Buddy" which keeps track of how far you've been running.
With 7.2Mbps HSDPA and WiFi support you should be able to connect to the internet pretty much anywhere would the urge hit and you weren't next to your notebook and at 13.95mm it's also fairly slim. The KC910 will be available from sometime in October and we'll have to wait until then to find out the full list of specifications and pricing.
