LG Town GT350
We're pretty down with the kids, clued up as we are about phone that aims to ensure you're never disconnected from your social circle. It'll cost you about £80 on a pay as you go deal.and happy slapping. So we're totally equipped with the street smarts required to handle the LG Town GT350, a social-networking
The Town comes in a range of funky colours: blue, purple, silver and black. We had the blue model, with a strikingly bright, light blue, pull-out Qwerty keyboard. The rest of the handset is as white as the driven snow, however. Its edges are also rounded, giving the impression of a pleasing little pod. The Town is pretty small -- measuring 52 by 107 by 16mm, it'll slide into your pocket or handbag without much fuss.
We were impressed by the Town's slide-out keyboard. It features four rows of buttons, and they're sensibly laid out, with gaps between each key to keep accidental presses to a minimum. Our only complaint is that the keys themselves feel rather stiff.
