LG calls it "The Most Compact TouchScreen Phone Ever". Meet LG GD510 Pop:
LG Pop is the smallest 3" full touchscreen phone. Yet, despite its small frame, Pop comes with features that remind you not to take it lightly. It features a 3MP camera, web browser and even a multimedia player. The camera on the LG POP captures 2048x1537 high resolution photos without pixilation and delivers great audio and video playback. As for storage space, LG Pop supports up to 8GB of external memory while its internal memory holds up to 200 songs or 10 video files.
The LG POP is very compact; measuring only 97.8 x 49.5 x 11.2 mm. And it's very light too; weight only 87 grams.
Targeting users who want to be part of the touchscreen generation but are not to keen to blow their savings on a cellphone, LG Pop GD510 captures the design and basic features of a high-end handset but comes with a mid-range price tag.
This promo video pretty much captures what LG Pop is all about:
Here are the specifications:
3" resistive touchscreen, 256K colors, 240 x 400 pixels
- Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate

3.15 MP Camera, 2048x1536 pixels

The Best Part: Price
Amazingly, LG Pop - which is already out in the UK - sells for only £ 99.99 or roughly Php 6,900 !!
Hopefully it will have the same price tag if and when it enters the Philippines this year.
UPDATE (as of May 8, 2010): LG Pop, renamed LG Cookie Pop, is now out in the Philippines with an SRP of Php 7,990 at authorized LG retail outlets.
