LG Pop GD510 Preview1
Introduction and design:
LG Pop GD510 is anything to do with them, really, aside from its name that reminds us of the pop culture and its focus of mass entertainment. Yes, this is a feature phone aimed at the mainstream market, equipped with 3-inch touch sensitive screen and WQVGA native resolution, utilizing resistive technology. The handset doesn’t come with any awe-inspiring features, but we need to point out that the prototype did manage to impress us with something…
We are talking about looks here. The LG is advertising the Pop GD510 as the smallest device to come with 3-inch display ever and this is not empty talk indeed. Its compact size allows it to fit into anyone´s pocket and its attractive look and body made from lapped, shiny aluminium will certainly appeal to quite a few people.

The button on the front side changes its color depending on what you do – it is red when it serves to close a menu or green – to open the call register. The LG Pop GD510 is equipped with microUSB port to charge and connect it to a computer.
One of the coolest extra features of the handset is that you can actually mount a solar panel on it. Unlike the Samsung Blue Earth, the panels are sold separately as additional accessory that anyone concerned about nature can easily buy it. The manufacturer also promises a box made from recycled materials and highly energy efficient charger. Removing the back panel reveals the connectors located next to the microSD slot, designed for the solar panel.
As a whole, the outer appearance of the LG Pop GD510 did manage to steal our hearts. Congratulations to the manufacturer for its success in integrating a 3-inch screen into a body with such a remarkably compact size.
