LG Launches its Interactive Mobile Phone in Europe (with InteractPad)

With TV's, Cars and Video Games going interactive, our mobile phones were the only device which needed to be more "understanding to our needs", and seems like LG has come out with an efficient solution. LG Electronics, a worldwide technology and design leader in mobile communications, today announced the European launch of its 2008 iF product design award winning LG KF600, a new mobile phone that is as feature-rich and easy to use as it is stylish, thanks to its unique InteractPad. The InteractPad replaces physical navigation keys with context-specific virtual keys that change to fit the task at hand. This is far more flexible than standard hardware keys and eliminates the need to memorize exactly which key performs what function. These virtual keys are also larger and better spaced than physical keys, improving accuracy.

The InteractPad is an ideal interface for controlling multimedia features like the LG KF600’s digital audio player, camera and video camera. Because its controls are not tied to physical buttons, each of these functions has a custom interface that makes it incredibly intuitive to use.

It is also equipped with multi-sensorial feedback that provides users with audio, visual and tactile cues. When a virtual button is pressed it becomes larger and the phone vibrates just slightly and makes a clicking sound. This feedback is not only designed to make these virtual buttons seem more like real ones, it also makes the phone more comfortable to use and improves accuracy. Ideally something suited to the disabled and elderly people who need to use a phone simply as "a phone"! Equipped with Eight dynamic graphic interface themes aim to project the owner’s personality. The LG KF600 is far more advanced than other slide phones and unlike any other phone available because of its unique interface and feed-forward tactile navigation made possible by the InteractPad.

The LG KF600’s powerful multimedia features include a 3 mega-pixel camera, MP3 player, video recording, FM radio, Bluetooth and more. Its ergonomic trapezoidal shape is the ideal complement to the phone’s sleek, glossy finish. It is said that this cool new device would soon be available for purchase and will be introduced at World Mobile Congress 2008 in Barcelona, Spain in February.
