LG has just launched its 'Mini' smartphone which it labels a ‘pocket-size communication hub that maximises the mobile web experience'.

It incorporates the latest LG HTML 5-compatible Phantom Browser, claimed to offer a much faster and more stable internet experience. Full support for Google Maps, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter is standard along with pre-installed applications for BBC News and AccuWeather. Amazon, CNN International, The New York Times, eBay and Fox News will be available through the LG Widget Gallery.

With 3.2-inches of usable LCD real estate and a slim layout, its name is quite apt. LG says its Mini features a minimalistic design, which is simple and sleek,  button free and wholly touch screen based.

"Our research shows that most people think current full touch screen phones especially smartphones - are too bulky, too clunky and too difficult to use," said HS Paik, president of LG Electronics Gulf FZE. "We developed the LG Mini to deliver the smartphone-like features that people want in a beautiful and compact package that is also user-friendly."
