The best of both worlds: Latest in quick messaging handset line-up combines QWERTY keyboard and touch screen

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 12, 2009) - LG Electronics Canada today announced its newest quick messaging handset: the LG Xenon. Available exclusively at Rogers Wireless, the LG Xenon is designed for the user who wants it all, combining a 2.8-inch touch screen display with a QWERTY keyboard for voice, video, picture or text messaging.

Named after the 54th element, the LG Xenon's stylish design and rich feature set is a formula for success for a savvy mobile user. The customizable and intuitive full-touch home screen serves as a unique enhancement to the QWERTY experience that Canadians love. Loaded with specifications developed for convenience and the ultimate in usability, the LG Xenon is designed to let the user move seamlessly from touch screen to QWERTY keypad to music player to camera.

One of the LG Xenon's most exciting features is its widgets-based full-touch home screen. From here the user can quickly and easily access a Favourites Contact screen, which features a new way to categorize and sort contacts. These widgets, combined with the touch screen and QWERTY keyboard enhance the user's communication experience.
