LG's GD900 is almost ready for launch in the UK and Pocket-lint was on hand before the official launch to get a hands on with the new see-thru handset.

Sporting the same interface as the LG KM900 Arena, the GD900 will add extra functionality through the use of the see-thru keypad, which is actually a touchscreen itself.

Although constant cleaning is likely to be in order, the handset will allow you to zoom in on the camera application, as well as doubling up as a mousepad when you are browsing.

The handset will be available in the UK on 1 July with a price depending on contract.
