LG KS360 Preview

Every year, to mark my birthday, I treat myself to a new mobile phone. Usually, it is a smartphone. This year, however, I have departed slightly from the regular pattern and gotten myself a mid-tier non-smartphone.

While traditionally a Nokia and Sony Ericsson fan, I have been getting quite adventurous for some time now, straying into the territory of other manufacturers, including Palm and Samsung. Well, the adventurous streak in me is apparently still at work.

I got myself an LG this time. My very first LG. Yes; life’s good!

The LG KS360

The KS360 is an interesting device from LG that sports a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a stunning 240 x 320 pixel, 2.4 inch, display with touch screen dialling functionality, GPRS and EDGE, Bluetooth, 2 MPX camera, FM radio, threaded SMS view, and microSD slot, among others. It is primarilly targeted at heavy messaging people.

The size difference is amazing! The KS360 is the size of a regular phone and weighs only 108g.

    Hmm! I have been thinking about this and other feature phones with side slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Let us know if it delivers with respect to performance and handling of 3rd party java applications.

    So far, I have installed and used both Opera Mini and Gmail without performance issues. I’m looking at installing a java Bible too. Will touch more on Java in the full review.
