LG has announced the launch of  LG KP500, a slim-profiled lightweight cell phone with a full touch screen handset.

The KP500 is a GSM phone which can operate in four frequency bands, can be used in 39 languages, with a wide 3 inch screen.

 The phone has handwriting recognition program that allows the user to write memos and text messages, and also edit photo images by touching the screen with the pen tip.  The embedded stylus is stored in the base of the unit.  The QWERTY onscreen keyboard slides into view when the LG-KP500 is held horizontally, and the auto rotating display always shifts images or documents for proper viewing no matter which way the handset is turned. Also packed into the LG KP500 are motion sensor games that are played by turning, flipping, and shifting the handset just like many iPhone games.

The UI allows the user to attach a friend’s photo for the speed dial feature and then page through the portraits and touch the friend to be called. “We optimized the user interface to keep the tactile operations smooth and simple which is necessary when you’re opening up a new technology to a wide group of people,” said Skott Ahn.

The LG KP500 comes in black, Vandyke brown, Anodizing silver, and Elegant gold.  The phone will be available at the end of October 2008 in Europe and then on to the rest of the world. The price of the LG KP500 will be announced during the launch.
