Vodafone and LG Electronics have announced the launch of the LG GM750, a new Windows phone based on Windows Mobile 6.5 available 6th October.
The GM750 comes loaded with easy-to-use features and services, Internet browsing when connected to Vodafone's high-speed mobile broadband or Wi-Fi, access to personal and work e-mail accounts, and calendar synchronization.
A large 3-inch full touch screen makes it easy to navigate while browsing the Internet, writing text messages and memos, or getting directions with its in-built GPS navigation function.
Using third-party applications, customers can change the look and feel with a personal background or designer themes and personalize the home screen so the information they need, such as weather reports, the latest traffic information or stock prices, is always available.
In addition to Internet and e-mail connectivity, consumers will be able to download applications directly to their phone via Windows Marketplace for Mobile, automatically back up and synchronise photos, music and texts to their PC using the free My Phone service, plus use Windows Live to check Hotmail or IM with friends on the PC or Xbox video game system.
“We’re excited to be bringing a new Windows phone with Vodafone high-speed mobile services to our customers through the exclusive LG GM750 Smartphone,” said Patrick Chomet, group global director of Terminals for Vodafone. “This stylish, touch-screen Smartphone will have great appeal to both consumer and business customers, and ensures Vodafone delivers on its promise to constantly bring customers new services and greater choice.”
The LG GM750 will be available in stores initially in seven countries: Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the UK and also in France through SFR, with further countries following soon after.
