LG Mobile is set to launch the GW620 into the New Zealand market, LG’s first Android product to launch globally.

Available exclusively on the Telecom network, the GW620 is packed with features which function on Google’s Android’s Open Operating System.

LG Mobile New Zealand Business Manager, Adam Gordon believes the release of the GW620 shows LG Mobile’s commitment to delivering products to New Zealand consumers hungry for the best, most up to date technology on offer.

“This launch of the GW620 is a fantastic development for LG Mobile in New Zealand, with the Android operating system providing an exciting new platform for mobile handsets.

“Through the GW620, LG is answering the consumer’s call to have handsets that deliver social networking capabilities wherever they might be. The built in SNS Manager allows users to keep in touch with friends, checking statuses, leaving comments and updating their own social networking sites remotely. The GW620 is packed with features and once again, LG is delivering a stylish handset designed for fast paced modern lifestyles,” said Gordon.

The LG GW620’s SNS Manager integrates a user’s social networking needs in one convenient platform, perfect for managing multiple accounts while receiving real-time updates from friends.

Telecom’s Head of Device Management, Graham Gordon says, “We are excited about the launch of the Android operating system on our XT Mobile Network and the world of possibilities it opens up to our customers.”

“The LG GW620 is a great starting point that will captivate the avid mobile social networker and we look forward to more exciting phones to be released on this platform in coming months,” he says.

The LG GW620 features a 3.0” full colour touch screen, which slides away to reveal a convenient, finger-friendly, five line QWERTY keyboard, perfect for typing messages at maximum speed.

The LG GW620 delivers a full multimedia experience, combining the latest in multi-entertainment features and providing genuine create-and-share capabilities. Featuring an autofocus 5.0MP camera and video recorder with advanced video editing tools, users can, shoot, capture and edit their experiences, sharing them instantly with the world at the touch of a button.

Unique to the GW620 is LG’s new Auto Face -Tagging and Face-To-Action technology. By simply tagging a friend's face in a photo, one can easily execute a range of remote functions such as uploading photos to a favorite site or connecting through SMS, MMS or voice by simply touching the face on the display.

The GW620 allows users to organise their lives with ease through Android‘s Google sync application, synchronising the handset with the latest updates from Google Mail Contacts and Calendar.

The Android operating system also allows users to download from a range of fun, helpful and entertaining applications, delivering unlimited new dimensions of functionality to their handset.

Connecting with the world through the GW620 has never been so easy, with MMS, video MMS and full push e-mail sitting alongside the easy to use SMS applications.
