LG Electronics has announced its very first smartphone for the Middle East, the LG-KS20, which will be available at the end of November. The phone, aimed at business professionals, boasts Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional edition, a 2.8-inch touch-screen display and a two-megapixel camera, along with HSDPA (i.e. high-speed internet), GPRS and EDGE support.

LG says the phone can download content such as music and video clips at a speed of up to 3.6Mbps (via HSDPA and providing this is offered by the operator), and believes this speed, along with the phone's second user-facing camera, makes the LG-KS20 a strong video-conferencing solution.

"More and more customers are using the internet while on the go. HSDPA technology is just one of the features we included in the LG-KS20 to enhance their mobile internet experience," stated K.W. Kim, president of LG EMEA.

Apart from HSDPA support, the 3G-enabled LG-KS20 also features WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. On the storage front, the phone includes 128Mbytes of ROM, which can be upgraded further via the external MicroSD slot. The LG-KS20 weighs 95 grams and resembles the firm’s high-end Prada phone, which was launched earlier this year in the region.
