LG Smartphone Runs On Korea's 4G WiMax Network

LGLG has released a phone today that runs on Korea’s 4G WiBro network.

The KC1 can reach near-broadband speeds over the WiMax network and, as such, features things like remote PC controlling and video conferencing. The phone surprisingly runs Windows Mobile 5 instead of Windows Mobile 6.

It also comes with a 2.8-inch touchscreen, 2-megapixel camera, 512MB of built-in memory (expandable via microSD), and digital TV compatibility.

The phone is currently available in Korea only but rumored to be offered elsewhere in the future.

Sprint is said to be deploying a WiMax network in 2008 so we might be able to expect phones like this in the somewhat distant future.
