Crave UK recently got its hands on the LG GD900 Crystal, a slider phone with a 3-inch touch screen and a transparent keypad that lights up when opened. But it's more than just gimmicky, see-though goodness--the keypad is a touch-sensitive controller, too.

You can swipe the keypad to scroll through the S-class user interface's music and photo gallery, which evokes a cover-flow effect.

You can also fast-forward or rewind through a music track or video with a circular gesture.

You can program up to 12 gestures to launch your favorite programs with a swipe of the keypad.

LG has tweaked the S-class user interface so that its program menu looks slightly less like the iPhone's. The icons are round, instead of rounded squares like on the LG Arena.

It's not easy to write while taking a photo, but the GD900 still recognized Crave UK's shaky efforts.

The back of the GD900 sports an 8-megapixel camera with an LED light.

At about half an inch, the GD900 feels reasonably thin, but not mind-blowing. Here it is in a size comparison with London's famed Big Ben, just to give you an idea.
