To get a hold on the already saturated music phone market, the need to innovate is of prime importance. There are already music phones available that features multi format file support, large memory and other fancy features like wireless headphones and stereo speakers. It takes some effort to come up a model with unique feature that everyone stands up and take notice. Something which the Korean mobile phone giant was successful in doing with the LG U400.
The LG U400 is unique not only in its DJing feature – something previously unheard of in mobile phones, but also in terms of design. Filled with confidence and enthusiasm after the success of the LG Chocolate's groundbreaking design, the company made many bold experiments with the design of the LG U400. The off-center jog wheel, chrome enriched call keys and liberal use of other design elements gives a strong and unmistakable personality to the LG U400.
The LG U400 is essentially a music phone with an evolved music player that is compatible with almost all audio and video formats. External memory card slot, Bluetooth stereo headset profile, dedicated music control that resembles an iPod makes the LG U400 comparable to any top of the line music phone. But the USP of this handset is its unique ‘scratching’ sound that could be created on any track played on the LG U400 – a feature expected to be instantly popular with wannabe DJs and turn-table enthusiast.
The LG U400 is a 3G phone and is capable of video calling across UMTS networks other than voice calls across triband GSM mobile network. Other than the VGA camera used for video calling, the LG U400 includes a 2.0 megapixel camera with all added functionalities including video recording. Swift and painless data transfer/download via GPRS and EDGE or local and remote connectivity through USB or Bluetooth – the LG U400 is way beyond just music.
