You might think it's Windows Mobile, but it's not
While it's not nice to fool Mother Nature, apparently cellphone users are a different story. The LG GW300, with its physical QWERTY keypad and sleek design, looks like a Windows Mobile smartphone for the budget conscious. Instead, it is a feature phone that is focused on the thumb pressing, social network joining, Twitter viewing, young ones. In fact, it has on board a Facebook client that makes it easy for users to stay connected to friends and family. Other features include a 2.4 inch QVGA screen, SMS/MMS and stereo Bluetooth. The handset is also an MP3 player. The device does not offer 3G connectivity nor does it have Wi-Fi. Pricing, launch date and availability are unknown, but more information on the LG GW300 is expected shortly.

Kids don't want a smartphone looking dumbphone. Almost every kid wants an iphone or some other touchscreen phone.
