had been pretty quiet on the European GSM mobile phone

44 x 22 mm and weighs just 89 grams. The large 128x160
pixel 65,000 colour display is partly covered by an
unusual sliding keypad. Talktime is about 2.5 hours
with around 6 days standby time.
The LG 7050's integrated digital camera is a 640x480
pixel unit, and the phone features MMS, Java support,
polyphonic ringtones, T9 texting and WAP over GPRS.
The LG 7050 supports infrared connectivity and can synchronise
with Microsoft Outlook. It's pretty capable in feature
terms, if unremarkable.

on the T-Mobile network from early 2004. If the LG 7100
is anything to go by, then the LG 7050 should be highly
competitive on price.
