The LG GT500 has launched as a T-Mobile exclusive, described as a good all-rounder, available free on £25 per month tariffs.

The HSDPA 3G handset gets a 3-inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, image stabilisation, digital zoom features and GPS technology.

As far as getting online goes, the phone can be used as a modem with a laptop, while the handset itself has quick links to sites such as Twitter and Facebook.

Music fans should note the built-in Dolby 2.0 sound and T-Mobile's multimedia offerings include Mobile TV and T-Mobile Mobile Jukebox.

Whether this is the same as the recently announced GT505, what memory capacity the phone has, whether it's GPS or A-GPS, what OS it runs and whether it has a 3.5mm jack are all unanswered questions at this stage.

The LG GT500 is available from T-Mobile stores now, with prices starting from free on a £25 a month tariff - but again we're waiting to hear how long those contracts are.

UPDATE: The phone is apparently "similar" to the GT505 but has a different design. Internal memory is 130MB plus a micro SD slot. It's A-GPS and offers a "proprietary LG OS", there is no headphone jack but does come with headphones in the box. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. 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.
