LG Arena KM900 Launch

February 9th, 2009 by LG Blog UK

We’re very pleased to be able to announce the launch of our flagship mobile phone for 2009, the LG ARENA (LG-KM900). This fully loaded multimedia phone featuring LG’s new and innovative 3D user interface (UI), will be unveiled for the first time at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

LG ARENA’s groundbreaking 3D UI is specifically designed to be a more fun and engaging gateway to delivering an amazing multimedia experience. A cube-based layout provides four customisable home screens for direct access to all features. Accessing music, movies, pictures and more is now easier than ever, with new and intuitive touch-based 3D menus. The rich 3D graphics bring LG ARENA to life with an enhanced look and also makes navigating through the menus even easier.


“The direct and dynamic UI is unlike anything that has featured on a mobile phone before. The rich 3D graphics, touch sensitivity and dynamic multimedia capabilities, make LG ARENA a truly feature loaded multimedia phone,”
– Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO – LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company

LG ARENA will feature all new audio and video technologies and we have gone to great lengths to ensure that it delivers an exhilarating multimedia experience, including features enhanced by Dolby and DivX technologies. LG ARENA will also include improved internet connectivity with HSDPA 7.2 networks, Wi-Fi and A-GPS. LG will release further specifications, features and other surprises during a press conference at Mobile World Congress, February 16th at 2.00pm (CET).

    I notice that the google package is subject to operator. Could I get some confirmation of which networks will and won’t include this package. Don’t want to commint to an 18/24 month contract without knowing in advance!

    When do you think the LG KM900 will be available on O2 network? It is already out on T mobile and Orange. Is there no way of finding out when this will happen?

  • Antonio

    Mmm, nice one but will it have the “usual” non existing software update and lack of support as others like the KF750? I guess so, after all that’s what LG is all about, fancy products and lack of support!!!

    I have taken some look on videos about the new KM900. The best comment for innovations like this was already given in the year 2006:

    “If you can’t innovate … you just imitate but it’s never quite as good as the original.” – Bertrand Serlet, Apple Inc.

    “A cube-based layout provides four customisable home screens for direct access to all features.”

    Wouldn’t a cube-based layout have six screens rather than four?

    Edit; reason for not seeing the delivery of content ” delivery speeds”
    Hard to respond on an iPhone as one cannot see the whole paragraph which is in itself, ironic, in making this argument.

    Personally, I think this us the year we see a major push of smart phones becoming more mainstream instead of targeted toward the niche and business class models as such, we could see a broad acceptance of the Federal Broadband initiative that President Obama is trying to get on his desk. This could very well be the bill that America needs ( in addition to creating numerous jobs), as it should move the U.S. Back to the top 5 in terms of speed as opposed to the lowly ~17th we presently reside in with many counties much faster than us.

    If it works, we should see the streaming of numerous new shows and the creation of strong B2B business as well as a revolutionary movement in terms of remote education and learning. It could also ( broadband initiative ), change the telcom business model as we now it which ironically, is the main cause for not creating cutting edge content and the continued lobbying for anti- federal deregulation as this would eat away at their stranglehold of the consumer profits.

    A 3D UI definitely sounds interesting, though I think it could very well be the type of thing to really make or break the phone. If it is implemented well I think it could get a lot of people interested unfortunately it could go the other way!
