LG Releases Cheapest “3G for All” Mobile Handset


The LG KU250 was released by the LG Mobile group. I was able to attend a small luncheon courtesy of Globe Telecommunications to celebrate the launch of the handset that costs P6,250.00 till June 30 2007. This is a move to bring down 3G to the masses since Globe’s video calls AND voice calls are charged the same rate.

I believe SMART is also offering the same handset with their own pricing scheme.

hi jayvee your blog is super famous!!!!!!! i don’t even know if i should be commenting!!! COOL BLOG!!!!! it’s giving mine a complex. hehe c u soon!!!!!! …o and perhaps i will look at this phone of which speaks you


This is my first NON-NOKIA Phone.

I bought this phone just this afternoon from a Globe Hub in Galleria w/ 0% Interest for 12 months!!

That’s only P500+ per MONTH!

Aside from the missing headset (2gb SD would be useless w/o it), it’s a very intuitive phone especially I’ve always been a Nokia boy even from the 90’s.

At 73grams, it’s ergonomically slim (unlike 6300 or ultra slim edition which could be a torment when typing long msgs over the keypad)

This is truly a feature-rich phone for it’s price and Ergonomically SLIM SIZE!

256k Colors
1.3 Megapixels (plus front cam)


Grab your P500 /mo 3G phone TODAY!! πŸ™‚

One question though, 3G or GPRS Data Rates of GLOBE is freakin expensive at 0.15/kb = P150 PER Megabyte while SMART offers P10 per 30mins.

Where can I have this unit open lined?

tnx in advance! πŸ™‚

I think Globe’s still charging GPRS and 3G by the kilobyte, which really turns off it’s subscribers who has 3G phones and want to use the technology for internet surfing, besides the video calls. So I think Smart has the better edge in the data transfer rates (P10/30 mins).

Anyway, wish I could really get my hands on one of those.
