The LG GD510 has a 3-inch WQVGA 240×400 touchscreen phone. The cellphone has 3 MP camera with 8GB internal memory. The casing is a brushed aluminum, with a single button on the face that functions as the menu.
A distinctive feature on LG GD510 is the optional solar panel casing that will replace the battery cover using the built in solar power charger.
“We gave the LG GD510 an optimized feature set which allowed us to concentrate on making the phone more compact and simpler to use,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our high-end phones like the Black Label Series New LG Chocolate (LG BL40) may be getting all the attention but there’s a gap in the market for affordable touchscreen phones that we want to fill. The LG GD510 delivers all the essentials in communication, multimedia and entertainment and comes in a compact form factor as well.”
The LG GD510 will be available beginning in mid-October in Europe, followed by other markets. There is no detail info on its pricing yet.
