LG Electronics (LG), a worldwide technology and design leader in mobile communications, today announced the launch of the world’s first transparent designer phone the LG GD900 Crystal across the GCC.

The LG GD900 Crystal is a trendsetting touchscreen phone based on the motif of transparency. The Crystal Touchpad, the keypad of the LG GD900 Crystal, slides out effortlessly from under the display and emits a soft, warm glow. The Crystal Touchpad is made of highly durable tempered glass and is framed and reinforced by a band of Liquidmetal, a composite alloy that is ultra-strong and able to absorb shock and vibration.

Not only stylish, the LG GD900 Crystal also stands out with its advanced navigational functions. The Crystal Touchpad can be used in the same way as a touchpad on a laptop computer or with a Gesture Shortcut, a new way to experience touch navigation. Gesture Shortcuts reduce the amount of steps required to access multi-tasking features. For instance, users can immediately jump to the web browser in the middle of writing an e-mail by tracing a symbol on the Crystal Touchpad with their finger.

The LG GD900 Crystal also features the vivid and content-rich S-class User Interface (UI) and an additional chipset dedicated to multimedia and graphics content. The S-class UI, together with the touch features and additional processing speed makes the LG GD900 Crystal a multimedia powerhouse.

The LG GD900 Crystal features an 8 megapixel autofocus camera that displays photos on a high resolution 3-inch WVGA LCD touchscreen and with the auto-rotating display, photos look great every time. The handset also has a MP3 player and can hold up to 32GB of music, photos or data using the expandable memory card slot. The LG GD900 Crystal is Wi-Fi enabled, allowing user to connect to the internet via wireless hotspots and it also supports Bluetooth 2.1 for secure, high-speed connectivity to other devices.

The phone is available in eye-catching Chrome or Titan, both finishes highlighting the transparent keypad’s subdued beauty. The phone launched in June in select markets in Europe, Asia and other countries around the world and launches across the UAE this August, retailing at AED 2,799.
