The See-Through Smartphone

LG GD900 Crystal
LG makes a bold step in the design category by introducing yet another innovative aesthetic concept, transparency. LG GD900 Crystal, which is billed as the world's first transparent-design phone and the transparent screen, is as cool. This crystal, glass-like phone proves that stylish design can be achieved not only with the use of vivid colors, but also by revealing the handset in its purest form. Once imagined but never seen before, the LG-GD900 is expected to make a new fashion statement. With the debut of the LG-GD900 at the Mobile World Congress 2009, LG will strengthen its leadership in the mobile industry by expanding its design portfolio. Transparent yet eye-catching, the LG-GD900 will stand out from the crowd, and so will those who carry it. When opened, its sliding, translucent keypad illuminates a cool glow that reflects the phone’s sleek and polished silver body. But first-rate design was not the only thing in mind when creating the LG-GD900. It also lives up to the highest level of technical features expected in a premium caliber handset, including its dedicated Bluetooth headset. The LG-GD900 is scheduled for release during the second quarter of 2009 and the phone’s advanced features will be unveiled at that time. However, visitors at the Mobile World Congress will have an exciting opportunity to get a glimpse of LG-GD900, one of the most sensational new handsets at the LG Electronics. LG told us it's not sure whether the phone will ship with a tempered glass keypad or a hard plastic one--we're rooting for glass, although the plastic version we saw looked fine--but either way, we're looking forward to looking at stuff through it.
