LG KC780 Portrait Phone Is Official
Word has been flying around for a number of weeks already that the LG KC780 slider handset is very real, LG has finally made it official. Also known as the Portrait Phone due to its 8 megapixel camera, missing features such as 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity as well as GPS navigation makes this handset feel gimped. After all, shouldn't a handset with such a high end camera be on the same end of the scale as well? Anyhows, here are the features :-

* GSM 900/1800/1900, GPRS/EDGE connectivity
* 2.4? 240320 QVGA 262k color display
* 8 megapixel autofocus camera
* FM radio
* Built-in accelerometer
* DivX playback
* 140MB of user memory
* microSD memory card slot
* USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.1 EDR connectivity

Since the 8 megapixel camera is the main focal point (pun intended) of the LG KC780, let's delve into it further. You get Face and Smile detection, automatic modes for newbies as well as a Beauty Mode that does away with spots and imperfections on people's faces. ISO 1600 helps you capture better looking images in the dark, while a Smart Light setting helps with brightness problems. You can also use the handset as a webcam in case you come up short on your business travels and forgot to pack that in.
