LGs KC910 one ups the Viewty, ships in October

“Today LG unveiled the successor to its popular Viewty touchscreen handset, the new KC910. The KC910 is what LG is touting as the only 8 megapixel cameraphone with a full touchscreen interface as well as the thinnest 8 megapixel cameraphone , thanks to its slim 13.95mm profile. LG’s new flagship handset has a large 3” WQVGA (400×240 pixel) touchscreen display that promises to provide users with a high-quality multimedia experience when it comes to both photos and videos. Speaking of video, the KC910 is capable of recording clips with frame rates ranging from 5 to 120 frames per second, meaning that it can make videos that run faster than normal as well as those that slow down fast action to a more easily viewed pace. None of this would be possible, of course, without the KC910’s Schneider-Kreuznach lens equipped camera, which has an effective ISO rating of up to 1600 and is backed up by a true xenon flash.Other features found on the KC910 include an A-GPS module for navigation as well 3G HSDPA data connections for up to 7.2Mbps of download speed. WiFi is also on board for further data convenience.LG has said that it will provide further specs, including the cellphone’s “pet name”, in the near future. In any case, LG says that the KC910 will be available for purchase in October of this year.” via
