LG-8550 fat clamshell

Lg 8550No, there's nothing wrong with the proportions of this picture. The freaky I-ate-all-the-pies phone shown in the pic is LG's latest offering. The neon colours and widebody form factor make it a love-hate proposition. The device features a square (!) 220x220 LCD main screen with smaller secondary external screen. There is also a 1.3 megapixel primary camera and a smaller VGA camera for 3G video calling. The device ships with 20MB of internal memory and is expandable via TransFlash cards. The music player supports MP3 and AAC while the video player supports MPEG4, WMV and H263. Strangely, the phone is currrently only available in Italy, but is supposedly about to launch worldwide. Current models of this phone ship with the SoundSystem speaker/dock. Via MobileKorea.
