Unboxed: LG KC910 Renoir

We didn't think LG could come up with a mobile name worse than Viewty but, right on cue, it's time to meet the new Renoir – or KC910 as we prefer to call it.

The 8MP camphone looks and tastes very much like the Prada and Viewty, with its very light chassis and touch screen. Those two phones were an acquired tastes, and first impressions of the KC910 are that it will be too – the touchscreen is a little unresponsive at times, and the web browser still pails in comparison compared to the iPhone and T-Mobile G1.

One area where it drinks those two phones' milkshake, though, is the camera: it's not only 8MP, but has a very powerful Xenon flash, smile shot, face tracking and blink detection. It looks a strong rival for the Samsung i8510 et al, but we'll bring you a full review to tell you how it fares. Next up, the LG Constable.
