LG KM900f Arena on Next G

If you want a vaguely iPhone-like handset but can't bring yourself to buy an Apple product, Telstra's touting the LG KM900f Arena as the newest multimedia addition to its Next G range.

With iPhone-y styling and a touchscreen, the LG KM900f Arena boasts a long list of features including 8G of storage, a 5MP camera (with 30fps video recording), Dolby digital sound, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio, FM transmitter, voice recording, DivX and XviD playback, and accelerometer.

Pretty much the kitchen sink, no?

It's also set up to use a bunch of Telstra-related services, including Yellow Pages, 1234, Whereis and Foxtel.

Unlike the iPhone - even the new iPhone 3G S - the KM900f Arena handles video calling. (Is it just that video calling is a minority interest in the US, or does Apple have a problem with the whole idea?)

How much? $A829 on postpaid plans.

Oh, and one sign of iPhone envy can be seen in the way the publicity photo of the Arena has an Apple-style vertical reflection.
