LG KF700 with touch of slide and touch of scroll

If you have seen LG viewty phone, you may feel this is very similar to viewty. But there is a small difference. Instead of viewty’s touch screen KF700 has both touch screen and scroll.
The LG KF700 (codenamed Virgo) is among the latest LG full touch handsets. Besides being one of the most affordable one among those, it stands out with multiple control-and-navigation methods. LG KF700 puts together a 3" touchscreen display, a slide-out standard keypad and a side mounted scroll wheel with an adjacent OK key. The neat and solid KF700 blends together elegance and great web surfing to broaden its appeal beyond the fashion-savvy.
LG KF700 has a remarkably responsive user interface, fashionable looks and strives to deliver most of the multimedia applications you might want in a mobile phone. The three input methods are diverse enough for you to find your preference. However, all the three types are rather fused - the only one you could go without is the scroll wheel. The touchscreen display does the job for most tasks, but you need the keypad to enter text. The keypad is useless on its own too, because it has no D-pad. So in the end, you are bound to use at least two of the input methods described.
LG KF700 is currently selling at about 230 euro (or 340 US dollars), which basically is a really competitive price - you would be hard pressed to find a sleek touch phone for less, unless of course you go for an at least year-old UIQ or Windows Mobile device.
