Introducing The New Lg Gm360 Bali

The recently concluded CeBIT held in Hanover, Germany last 1-5 March was quite impressive with more than 4,000 CE companies from 68 countries participating over just a weeklong exhibit of what consumers can expect for 2010.  The mobile phone industry didn’t let it pass to showcase and unveil new products it missed or failed to announce in the 2010 World Mobile Congress in Barcelona last February.

Korea’s number two mobile phone maker LG Electronics made good its presence with the unveiling of another set of affordable feature phones like the new LG GM360 Bali.

Conjuring up images of Balinese dancers taking calls from their handset might be the compulsion for LG to slap an exotic descriptive name to the handset, but the Bali is positioned as an affordable touchscreen feature phone that is sure to appeal to less demanding but wider markets for basic mobile phones with top notch features they’ve come to expect from upscale handsets.

Exotic Features to an Exotic Name

This early, there’s no technical specification or pricing disclosed for the Bali but an initial look and feel over it reveals a close affinity to the earlier GT505 released in August last year. Hardware-wise they are identical except that the new Bali has no 3G and SatNav features.  Everything else looks the same.

It comes with the same stunning 3-inch TFT LCD resistive touchscreen display with Wide-QVGA resolution and 25k color depth with the same gravity accelerometer for UI auto rotate viewing convenience. Imaging is retained with a gorgeous 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, but without a GPS receiver, you won’t enjoy geo-tagging that the GT505 has.

Its entertainment features start with the same basic MP3 audio and MP4 video players. No other media file format is supported.  But it comes with the same FM stereo receiver.  There’s also no 3.5mm stereo headphone jack but you get Bluetooth A2DP profile support for wireless stereo earphone listening.

The Bali is you basic quad band GSM that makes international roaming on the 2G network happen.  There’s no 3G but you get class 10 GPRS/EDGE data connectivity up to 236.8 Kbps which is good enough for online browsing and downloading but since you also get WiFi 802.11b/g for up to 54 Mbps, your internet experience is better served with a WiFi data plan.  Local wireless data syncing is served by its Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR and the wired option comes from its microUSB 2.0 support.

The LG GM360 Bali is no smartphone but sports an S-Class UI ported on a runtime platform that gives it the look of one. Most consumers in its target markets really couldn’t care less what a smartphone is as the distinction with feature dumb phones gets less prominent these days.

You can do about the same things on it as on a smartphone. Software wise, the Bali is preloaded with games, a WAP 2.0 HTML browser, Email and Push Email client as well as a document viewer for MS Office and PDF files.
