[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Welcome to [inaudible]. I'm [inaudible]. I'm delighted to be showing you the first LG smartphone, based on Moorestown platform. Do you want to see it? >> Yes. >> Okay, let's do it. So we have worked with LG to do a 3-D UI. You can move between panels. Each one of these panels is customizable. And I have this button here that takes me back. So let me go back. Takes me to this cube UI. >> How did you go back? What did you do to go back? >> Let's do it here. This button here, it takes me back. So this is the cube UI. >> Very nice interface. >> Very clean: 3-D. You can rotate and you can decide where to zoom. Let's go here. Now I'm going to go to the application view. This is the application view. Bunch of applications. There are some communication apps, some media apps, utilities and settings. You know, this is a smartphone. This is more about smart and less about the phone. So when you think about communication, you think about not just making a phone call, but also messaging, email, blogging... different ways to communicate. On the media side, you have a camera, you have a video camera, your gallery, movie maker, different games, music, and then FM radio. Utilities, you have the browser, Google apps, few other things. Let's look at up here. Let's look at the gallery. So I have a few, you know, random pictures and video. Start with pictures. Very cool screen. Very responsive screen. Very easy to move around, right? Let me show you some video. Now, this is the Avatar trailer: 720p. >> Okay. >> The screen resolution is 1024 by 480. The aspect ratio is 2.13 to one. Look at the quality of the screen, the quality of the video. Right, it has a accelerometer [phonetic] I'm going to rotate. Look at that. >> Wow, that is beautiful. >> Right? This is beautiful. >> That's the best video I've seen on a smartphone so far. >> Excellent. Now let me show you a couple of other things that will...[inaudible]. So I left the video running. Video is running in this window. I'm going to open couple more apps. I'm going to open... an organizer. I'm going to open... let's open the phone. Okay. So now I have three apps running. You can have more apps running at the same time. And the beauty of this resolution is you have three apps running at the same time. You can be watching video, talking to your family and looking at your gallery all at the same time. >> Very impressive. >> Right? All made possible by the performance of Moorestown. >> Moorestown. >> Moorestown platform, super-smart device from LG. >> And any connectors you wanna talk about, or...? >> You know, it is very sleek. This is the charger. >> Okay. >> This is on-off button. Volume up-down. Takes you back. Camera. That's it. Very cool-looking. >> Very, very, very nice. >> You have a five-megapixel camera in the back, and then another camera here. >> Oh, another camera. >> Yeah. >> So two cameras. >> That's right. You want to see the camera? Let me show you. I'll... do the video camera. Okay? So I have the video camera on. Now I have four applications running at the same time. Amazing. >> Amazing for a smartphone, yeah. >> No other smartphone can do that. ^E00:04:45 ^B00:04:50 >> Very nice. Very nice. And anything you wanna say about the Moorestown shift? >> You know, we are on track to launch Moorestown first half. This product will ship second half. >> Great. And anything about the operating system you can say at this point? >> That's a good question. This one is based on Moblin 2.1. >> Oh, okay. >> Moblin is based on Linux. Moblin plus Moorestown kind of go hand-in-hand, right? This combination will be launching later this year. >> Later this year. Well, thank you very much for taking the time. This was very interesting and a great smartphone. I look forward to it. >> Thank you, sir. >> Thank you. ^M00:05:32 [ Music ]
