Hands-on with LG's Symbian sat-nav phone

The LG KT610 is a new candybar smart phone that not only comes with GPS but also packs full Qwerty keypad and a standard one to boot too.

In an attempt to beat the masses of handset announcements that came out today, LG announced a new candybar smart phone yesterday that not only comes with GPS but also packs full Qwerty keypad and a standard one to boot too--it's called the LG KT610.

On the front you get a small screen and standard keypad, but flip the KT610 open and you're presented with a full Qwerty keypad and medium-sized screen.

Interestingly, the KT610 runs on Symbian OS v9.2 and S60 3rd Edition Feature pack 1--the same operating system as many Nokia smartphones. The advantage of running Symbian on the KT610, as you'll already know if you've got a Nokia phone running it, is you can install gallons of cool third-party apps. (Click here for more.)
