A new handset has been recently introduced by the Korean mobile phone manufacturer, LG. The handset is a clamshell designed mainly for kids and comes in three colors: cutie pink, aqua blue and ‘boyish titanium’. The handset is, however, known by the name of Lollipop.
I never was a fan of color names like ‘aqua blue’ as water (aqua) has different colors regardless of purity. Anyway, the name ‘boyish titanium’ is somehow offensive to colors. The name is absolutely awful and does not even represent a real color.
Albeit from this, the handset is not that bad. The LG Lollipop comes with 220 tiny LEDs that have been included in the case of the mobile phone. This can be custom configured to display anything from hearts, animals and cars.
The handset comes with a 2.8 inch TFT internal display with 240 x 400 pixel resolution. It also features CDMA and HSDPA connectivity support. Additionally, the handset comes with a 3 megapixel camera with auto focus and a secondary camera of 1.3 megapixel for video calls. The LG Lollipop comes also with an integrated music player.
LG Lollipop comes with a microSD memory card slot offering its user the possibility to have extra story space. The handset is quite thin and light. The LG Lollipop measures about 106.5 X 51.5 X 13.4 and weights no more that 92 grams.
At the moment, LG plans to release the handset in South Korea starting this month and it will be available to SK Telecom, KTF and LG Telecom. Currently there are no plans to release the handset in other countries as far as we know.
