The latest in LG’s Qwerty-tastic Town series is the LG Town C300, providing portable social networking on a shoestring.
The LG Town C300 comes with a 2.4-inch display, a full Qwerty keypad and Facebook and Twitter apps pre-installed. Real-time status and tweet updates are displayed on the homescreen on LG’s SNS (Social Networking System) widgets and push email is also supported.
According to the specification on Orange’s coming soon page, the LG Town C300 doesn’t appear to feature 3G or Wi-Fi, meaning that accessing the web on the go could be a slow and potentially costly business. There was no mention of either of these features in the press release from LG, but if this is the case it’s not the end of the world; 3G-less phones can still be capable messagers.
Other features of the LG Town C300 include a 2-megapixel camera, a music player and a 3.5mm jack.
The LG Town C300 will be available to order from Orange soon for £70 (plus £10 top up) on pay-as-you-go.
