LG GM750 Preview
Are we going to surprise you if we tell you the 5-megapixel camera of the LG GM750 sports the same interface as the LG ARENA KM900? It looks great and delivers relatively rich functionality, including shooting modes, effects, white balance etc. We hope the retail units will provide image quality that is higher than what most Windows Mobile phone offer. For now, take a look at the pictures we took with the prototype, but don’t jump to conclusions.
The maximum video resolution is WQVGA, which is a far cry from today´s standards. We wish the phone could capture at least VGA videos.
The music player is the same as the version on feature phones running S-CLASS 3D, but does not work in landscape mode. The lack of 3.5mm jack will certainly make the LG GM750 less appealing to music lovers. Finally, the phone doesn’t offer built-in support for DivX and Xvid, but this is as easy to fix as getting a third party application.
With the appealing overall design and properly personalized interface of the LG GM750, LG can get off to a flying start on the Windows Mobile market. Certain functions start relatively slowly on our prototype, but if the issues have been fixed, the retail units can prove to be a major rival to all mainstream Windows Mobile phones. What we can do at this time is congratulate LG on the great work they have done with the proper integration of S-CLASS 3D into Windows Mobile and wait for a final, retail unit of the promising smartphone.

It would be notice to see different manufacturers providing handsets for WinMo but most producers now are seeking to encourage multimedia use and try to rival the iphone etc to some degree. Without a 3.5mm jack and no divx or xvid support there is nothing that would make me choose this over say the Omnia 2 which is a shame. I am looking at the Omnia at present but cannot get the 8gb version so probably holding out for that or may await the Storm 2 - But after the orginal Storm it would need a good run through first
