LG just released the SB190, their next phone in the line-up, to their friends in Korea. LG took into account the popularity of the Chocolate, and so again steered away from flip phones, creating another slider. Sliders are great and all, but after a few months the screen starts to get scratch from everyday wear and tear, and then your once cool slider is now a piece of crap, even if it has specs than all the other phones on the market. Some of the specs on this phone include DMB, GPS, mp3 player, and 1.3 megapixel camera. These specs arenít really anything special on the SB190, so LG will have to pull out something miraculous to get this thing to sell; if someone is going to buy a slider, theyíll probably go with the slick Chocolate, not this bulky-looking piece of work. Donít worry, you donít need to choose yet; you probably wonít be seeing this for a while in the US.
