LG Arena challenges the iPhone multi-touch patent
If Apple see this, the Cupertino-based company might have a second thought on preparing its weapons to go against Palm for the iPhone multi-touch patent infringement dispute, because apparently LG is about to launch a new handset with UI (User Interface) that shows a very close resemblance to iPhone's.
LG Arena (KM900) appeared on a phone retailer brochure in the Netherlands, as reported by All About Phones (via GSMArena). The phone design immediately reminds us of Samsung i900 Omnia, and they both even share the same series code: 900.
Not much of specs mentioned, but all we know for now is that the Arena sports: 5MP camera, DVD video recording quality, DivX playback, Bluetooth, GPS & WiFi. And as for the UI, LG calls it as "S-Class" user interface.
Everything said to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2009 in the next few weeks.
