LG has announced the launch of what it says is the smallest and slimmest 3.2-inch touchscreen phone on the market with the introduction of the new LG Mini, or GD880 to give it its proper model number.

Apparently, the Mini has been developed in response to consumers saying they were "unhappy" with current touchscreen devices that they considered "too bulky, too clunky and too expensive".

Said to be "easily pocketable" and with the "trendy features that people want", the button-free Mini offers HSDPA connectivity at 7.2Mbps, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, a 5-megapixel camera, FM radio, media player and LG's "Social Network Connect" functionality with Facebook and Twitter built in.

The LG Mini will be available in Europe starting in March, with a UK launch set for April. Pricing, full specs and availability is to be confirmed nearer the time.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
