A7110 / F9100 MM-535 / VX-4700
LG is showing off several new phones this week.
(At the first event, they didn't have anything handy to cover the carrier logos, which they are contractually prohibited from showing on camera. So please excuse my strategically-placed fingers - it's the only way I was allowed to take photos.)
First is the A7110, a new slider for the GSM side of things. It's LG's first model with EDGE high-speed data.
It's similar to the Samsung P777 in many ways, but most of the features are just a step down compared to the P777, like the VGA camera instead of megapixel, 30 minutes of video capture instead of 60, and no MP3 player. Of course, that also means the A7110 should be more affordable, and with streaming video playback and a swiveling camera, it still looks like a good mid-range model.
Next is the recently-revealed F9100 messaging phone:
The F9100 is pretty much the size and weight I expected, which is slightly larger than a typical bar-style phone, but not too much, in my opinion. The keyboard is okay to type on. It's a bit wide compared to many other thumb-boards, but I imagine you'd get used to the key spacing pretty quickly. And besides, too large is much better than too small when it comes to keypads and keyboards.
