LG ARENA : REVIEW , SPECS AND PRICE;3G PHONE, 3D MULTI-TOUCHSCREEN, 5.0 MEGAPIX WITH WORLD FIRST DOLBY SURROUND SOUND INTEGRATED - alternative to iphone 3g

 

 

The new LG Arena has been pitted against the Apple iPhone 3G in a new

 

review this week. Since its global release in February, not only has ARENA created huge media interest and buzz from bloggers, but it has also achieved 1 million unit pre-orders from various carriers worldwide.

ARENA is the perfect portable multimedia powerhouse to enjoy immersive audio and razor sharp video at all times. It includes the world’s first Dolby Mobile technology, to deliver an exhilarating surround sound experience for video content and enhance the sound of music content. Its 3.0-inch WVGA screen has four times sharper resolution than standard QVGA screens.

The LG Arena has a quality touchscreen and Dolby sound for a superb musical experience
Surf the internet at super-fast speeds with web’n’walk
5 megapixel camera for great quality photos
Download tunes from our Mobile Jukebox and enjoy clear, crisp Dolby sounds
8GB (expandable up to 32GB) memory to store all your tunes

Its powerful battery offers up to 30 hours of MP3 playtime and 300 hours of standby time. It also boasts a five megapixel camera with auto and manual focus capabilities.
Debuting on ARENA, LGLG’s new S-Class UI offers the most exhilarating gateway to enjoy these countless multimedia features. It was designed from the very start to leverage the advantages of touchscreens and eliminate unnecessary menus and steps.
Fast yet smooth 3D transitions menus between menus are made possible with the help of a powerful AMD processor. The quick touch response and multi-touch capabilities greatly enhance the web surfing experience for users.

According to online technology resource Gaj-it, there are factors which put the South Korean manufacturer’s device out in front of its rival – including a better camera and a host of other features

The handset is equipped with a five-megapixel snapper – compared to the iPhone’s two-megapixel offering – as well as a landscape qwerty keypad, FM radio, Dolby audio and DivX video playback.

However, it is noted that the popularity of the Apple device is unlikely to be shaken by the Arena, which also goes by the name of the lg KM900.

“It’s not an iPhone killer,” the site explains. “But it is an alternative. With so many more features than the iPhone, the LG Arena does have the capacity to stand out and make a name for itself.”

T Mobile recently announced it would offer an exclusive Titan Black edition of the LG Arena on its range of tariffs.

 

If you watch the video above and have a little experience with cell phones, you don’t need to read anything about the LG Arena KM900. It’s probably one of the best phones we’ve seen so far from LG and it can easily stand tall in front of the iPhone or the black berryStorm.  Or the Pre or the G1! Did I miss anyone important?

TOUCH EVERYTHING.

The most interesting feature so far is that new 3D user interface. It’s totally new and from what we’ve seen in the official video, we totally like it. Dr. Scott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said about the UI:

What really makes ARENA special is its intuitive 3D S-Class UI, which is unlike anything that has appeared on a phone before. We surveyed consumers and found that they were unhappy withcurrent interfaces. They wanted a simple, fast and fun way to use multimedia and other features,but also an experience that was dynamic and interesting. We’ve done this so well with our brand new S-Class UI that it will set new standards for handsets in both functionality and fun.

There’s multi touchscreen support, which, combined with the 3D UI leads to an impressive control support. Scroll through menus, drag you fingers against the touchscreen and get the expected result. The cube layout will get you 4 home screens, each one with different shortcuts on it.

Touch Video – 3″ WVGA Screen
• Enjoy a truly cinematic experience with a 3″ WVGA screen (480 x 800 resolution) which gives you four times the   clarity of most mobile phones. Accessing your favorite film has never been easier thanks to the DivX/Xvid Video   Playback.
Touch Music – Dolby Mobile for Music
• Play your music more powerfully with Dolby Mobile for Music to experience a superior sound quality. Plus, take   advantage of the 3.5mm jack, which means you to use your own headphones. Finally, the LG Arena allows you plays   your music in multi-formats meaning all you’re your music – MP3, AAC, AAC+, RA and WMA).

Touch Connectivity
• Play your music where ever you want with the fantastic FM Transmitter. Plus, enjoy internet access with lightning fast   Wi-Fi connection and a PC like internet browser. Finally, you can venture off the beaten track with “A-GPS” and you’ll   always know where you’ve taken a great photo with Geo-Tagging.

Touch Storage – 8GB of storage
• With 8GB of storage (expandable to 32GB with a Micro SD Card) there’s plenty of room for loads of photos, music and   videos.

The intuitive 3D S-Class UI – S for superior – makes its debut with ARENA and will be featured in other premium LG models launching later this year.

3D S-Class User Interface

Intuitive and life-like touch-based 3D menus take the fuss out of searching through contacts and multimedia content, perfect for anyone more comfortable with a traditional analogue experience.  Reel Scrolling lays out menus as if they were on a film reel, providing icons for each choice that are so easy-to-understand no further explanation is needed. Dragging a finger across the S-Class UI’s 3D reels allows users to scroll through entertainment options.

In ARENA’s camera mode, an intuitive on-screen dial, similar to those found on many high-end standalone camera, makes it easy to customize shot settings for picture-perfect results.

Fast

ARENA’s S-Class UI was designed from the very start to leverage the advantages of touchscreens to eliminate unnecessary menus and steps. At its core is a cube layout that provides four customizable home screens that provides fast access to all features by flipping the cube with the flick of a finger. With multiple faces, the cube allows for four times more shortcuts than a single screen, making menus easier to access.

Also created with fast access in mind are ARENA’s Elastic Lists, which make it easier to browse through contacts and other catalogued information. When touched, list items stretch like a rubber band to provide more detailed information, options or easy editing. This eliminates the extra step of switching to a new screen, saving time and making it easier to browse to other choices as well.

Fast yet smooth 3D transitions between menus are made possible by the perfect pairing of LG’s S-Class UI and a powerful AMD processor.

Fun

Colourful graphics give ARENA a sense of dynamism and fun found in no other phone. ARENA’s dynamic graphics are especially evident in the phone’s Floating Image Gallery. When held upright, the phone displays photos neatly in rows. But turn the phone on its side and the photos cascade off the screen and reappear much larger. Sliding a finger from top to bottom, shows photos taken on different days. Dragging a finger from left-to-right shows photos taken on the same day.

Going one step further, its Tactile Analogue Alarm Clock and Radio Tuner make it almost feel like moving a clock’s hands or turning an actual dial.

The S-Class UI is the perfect 3D gateway to enter ARENA’s amazing multimedia environment, which includes immersive audio and razor sharp video for the perfect portable entertainment experience.

ARENA’s audio, video and photos can easily be shared on social networking sites, thanks to 3G HSDPA 7.2 networks and Wi-Fi.

The phone also supports Google Mobile Service which includes Google search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube and Google Blogs. A-GPS and geo-tagging are also possible. ARENA’s multi-touch capabilities greatly enhance the web surfing experience.

All of these powerful features are packed in ARENA’s sleek and refined metal body, perfectly sized to grab and go at 105.9 x 55.3 x 11.95 mm. Tempered glass over the touchscreen ensures long-lasting durability to keep the phone looking sophisticated and clean. ARENA will be available in silver and black titanium colour schemes.
With its official launch at the Mobile World Congress, ARENA will initially be available in Europe in March and then globally.
