By: susan hargreaves

The new LG KF700 is the first LG mobile phone to incorporate a scroll wheel for navigation purposes.

The KF700 is a touchscreen device and looks remarkably similar to the Apple iPhone, however the LG KF700 has a hidden secret or two that the iPhone would be very jealous of.

The LG KF700, or LG Virgo, is LG's response to the Apple iPhone and from first impressions LG are giving the iPhone a real challenge.

Elegantly designed, this multimedia slider offers a unique interface with 3 seperate touch related input methods, each with designated functionality and automatically asserted for the task at hand.

The LG KF700 has a virtual shortcut dial on its 3 inch touch sensitive screen, for which there is a corresponding scroll wheel positioned on the back of the phone, alternatively slide the screen upwards to reveal an alpha-numeric keypad.

Having integrated TouchFlo technology first seen in the HTC Touch range of smartphones users can scroll through menu's and shortcuts with a swipe of the fingertip via predefined widgets.

The scroll wheel comes in really handy and apart from being able to select from 6 user-selected features at anytime, it can also be used to scroll through web pages (zooming in or out), control volume and check through emails.

HSDPA 3G enabled for high speed internet connections and faster data transfers, the LG KF700 offers full web browsing facilities and email access to accompany you on all your travels, as well as access to the experimental GMail.

Multimedia features include a 3 mega pixel multi-functional camera, video player, secondary front mounted videocall camera, Stereo FM Radio and an MP3 player with support for multiple audio formats.

The LG KF700 offers bluetooth and other features such as Google Search, Maps and the facility to upload images and videos direct to blogsites and YouTube.

The LG KF700 has been initially released on O2 contract deals in the UK, however this is a time limited exclusive launch and further networks and retailers will be able to sell the phone in the near future.

The LG KF700 is by far one of the most advanced LG mobile phones to date and will give Apple iPhone lovers a real problem when deciding to buy a new phone.
