LG GW520 unboxing video

Another device with a sliding QWERTY keyboard hits the market, this time the GW520 from LG.

It does seem like every manufacturer is suddenly compelled to release their own QWERTY keyboarded handset and LG are no different. The GW520 has a similar Flash-based OS to many other LG handsets but has the obvious added benefit of a full, sliding QWERTY keyboard.

Having spent just a little time using the handset I have to say that the keyboard is quite impressive, LG have done a decent job here. But, for a handset that is clearly designed ad messaging and social networking it’s rather disappointing not to have built in WiFi.

James is reviewing the handset at the moment and the review will be on site over the next week or so. Feel free to direct questions at him via the forum. In the mean time have a look at the unboxing video below for a taster of what the LG GW520 has to offer.
