LG To Launch The KP500, The Cheapest Touchscreen To Date

LG has come up with a stylish yet surprisingly affordable touchscreen phone, KP500, which is likely to hit the market towards the end of October.

Though LG has not divulged the technical specification, the KP500 is expected to feature a three inch touchscreen along with a camera and an accelerometer designed for enabling motion sensitive games.

The company is already claiming that the phone will make it as the most affordable mobile with a full touchscreen in UK (ed: At least someone thought about that!)

However the KP500 will differ from other high end touchscreen handsets that allow a finger touch input and will instead feature a stylus for taking input.

The launch of this handset is surely going affect the prospects of smartphones that are targeting the price conscious customer; however the jury is still out on whether it can make any dent in the prospects of iPhone and its ilk.
