First thing that comes to mind when first glancing at the amazing LG KE850? iRiver S10. Not because of size or functionality, but because of the beautiful design that the two devices share. Both have only a screen (save for buttons on the sides), both have a glassed-over black smoothness, and both attract fingerprints like the backside of your iPod. The slim LG KE850 is a cellphone, not an audio player, and it has a touchscreen. The thinness of this device is accomplished because of the touchscreen and the fact that it doesn’t need to have a slide out panel. While there is still an absence of intensive specs for the KE850, we do know that the screen has a maximum resolution of 240 x 400 and it will support some kinds of media and hopefully Office. The pictures also reveal a digital camera on the backside of the devise, but no details on that for now. Speculatively, what device did LG release earlier this year that looks like this? The Chocolate. Can anybody say product line extension?
