Video: LG GW990 Linux-based smartphone

The LG GW990 was unveiled yesterday during Intel’s keynote. It’s a ‘mobile internet device’ that is basically halfway between a smartphone and a netbook.

It can do this because it is based on the Intel Moorestown platform. The Linux-based Moblin 2.1 operating system with the Moorestown platform provides the user interface. LG have always given a good user experience and the GW990 looks to continue that tradition.

The device itself has a 4.8-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 480 pixels. LG really like big screens such as their Chocolate and this allows the device to display web content without the need for scrolling.
