After a couple of leaks last week, it finally came time for LG to step up and officially unveil the KM900 Arena fully touch-operated handset. With a spanking new user interface our namesake seems destined to join the LG KC910 Renoir at the top of the line of multimedia handsets by the Korean company.
Peculiarly enough the official announcement brings less details about the phone than the leaks we witnessed just a few days ago. The company has chosen to keep the rest of it secret for the World Mobile Congress, which starts next week in Barcelona.
What is certain for now is that the LG KM900 Arena sports GPS, Wi-Fi and HSDPA 7.2 Mbps. DivX and XviD support are also onboard and the new 3D interface, daringly dubbed S-Class, features some kind of rotating cube, much like the first implementation of the HTC-made TouchFLO UI.
While that's as far as the official info goes, but the last week leaks have revealed much more details about the handset. Seeing how accurate they have turned so far we have no reason to doubt them.
That means that the LG KM900 Arena will come with an impressive 3" 262K color WVGA (800x480 pixels) touchscreen display. A 5 megapixel snapper will also be included and the handset is said to be able to record "DVD-quality" videos. We just hope this time LG got the frame rate right on their D1 video.
The LG KM900 Arena will stand at 105.9 x 55.3 x 11.95mm and will weigh 105 grams - quite acceptable considering the specifications.
Unfortunately there is no information about the availability or the pricing of the LG Arena yet.
