….thats according to the people at 3g.co.uk. They have got a pre-production model from LG which they have been testing and have posted a review. Their verdict
“It may lack the Chocolate phone’s swoonsome body, but the U400 is a very capable music phone…It is a little bigger than the Chocolate phone but remains a compact, pocketable device. The slide action is slick when opening but stubborn to close but this should loosen after continual use, while the navigation controls are centred around a jog-wheel dial, adopted previously on the Samsung i300 handset. ” .. full review here
Having seen this phone in the office a couple of times during it’s testing window I have to say from an aesthetic point of view it does look very good, the main design feature being the Jog wheel… there have been a couple of interesting view points expressed on CNET.co.uk regarding the use of the IPOD style jog wheel. Anyone who has an ipod will have their own opinion.
With a few online retailers already showing this phone on their websites with pricing and tariff details TBC it is safe to assume that we can expect this soon. Although the interesting fact is that as of this morning the u400 is still missing of the official LG uk website and off three.co.uk
