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.
â€œWe gave the LG GD510 an optimized feature set which allowed us to concentrate on making the phone more compact and simpler to use,â€ said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. â€œOur high-end phones like the Black Label Series New LG Chocolate (LG BL40) may be getting all the attention but thereâ€™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.â€
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.
