lg arena max

The LG LU9400, also known as the Arena Max, is set to offer high speed processing power thanks to the Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm and is due for imminent release in the company's native market of South Korea.

LG has announced that the Arena Max will hit stores at some point in March, although it will probably go through some kind of rebranding and software overhaul before it makes it to the UK.

As well as a powerful processor, the Arena Max will have a 3.5 inch touchscreen interface, an optical trackpad, Wi-Fi, GPS and a five megapixel camera with HD video recording.

The bad news is that LG has lumbered the Arena Max with its own proprietary S-Class 3G user interface, which is an evolution of a much-criticised platform.

It would have been nice to see the Arena Max based on Android or even Windows Mobile, but it does have enough hardware clout to iron out many of the interface issues which plagued earlier versions of LG's S-Class software.
