LG GT505 and GW520 Preview
LG announced a few details of two new handsets this week, aimed at users of social networking sites. Both handsets are due to hit the market next month.

The LG GT505 is a version of the upcoming LG GT500 Puccini, but where the GT500 is for the T-Mobile network, the GT505 will be available exclusively on Orange.

Other than a few cosmetic changes, the GT500 and GT505 seem to be identical. Both are touchscreen phones with a 3" 400 x 240 pixel touchscreen display, 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi and 3.5G support. The GT505 comes with a 30 day trial of the WisePilot turn-by-turn navigation software, plus a range of applications to work with social networking sites.

Twelve months ago the LG GT505 (and indeed the Puccini) would have been a pretty big deal. But LG's relatively low-key launch of these devices indicates that perhaps LG are pitching these as mass-market phones.

The GT500 and GT505 should be available on the respective networks from June onwards.

LG GW520

The LG GW520 is a touchscreen phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, sitting in LG's range somewhere between the KS360 and PRADA II handsets.

There's a 2.8" 240 x 400 pixel display, a 3 megapixel camera, HSDPA support plus all the usual features including push email for Microsoft Exchange.

Again, the LG GW520 is meant to work with social networking sites although few details were given by LG, however it does seem that updates can be pushed directly to the phone.

LG say that the GW520 should be widely available from June 2009 onwards, although we have no information on pricing.

As with the GT505, the GW520 would have been a hugely impressive phone if launched 12 months ago, but now the competition is very tough indeed. The GW520 simply cannot compete with the likes of the HTC Touch Pro 2, but our guess is that the LG will be an awful lot cheaper to buy.
