The GW990 uses Intel's new CPU, codenamed 'Moorestown', which powers the phone's marvellous multitasking skills. Not only do apps run in the background, they run simultaneously in the foreground -- LG demonstrated the GW990 running three apps at the same time on its epic 122mm (4.8-inch) screen.
That huge screen packs in 1,024x480-pixel resolution, which should make it a great movie-watching and Web-browsing phone. It also has 16GB of memory on board with room for more thanks to a microSD expansion slot.
There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and Wi-Fi and HSPA support for fast Web surfing over 3G.
We're still waiting to find out whether the GW990 will have a price as beefy as its body, but we should know before it arrives on shelves in the second half of the year.
