LG GM730 Unboxing

LG GM730 Unboxing
· ·

Finally I have received the retail unit of LG GM730. Preciously there was a big commotion among the bloggers who received the LG GM730. Some report that the battery looks old and hence that explains the extremely short battery life of less than 12 hours on standby, some also reported that there are scratches on the phone and on the battery. That made us wonder whether the unit given to us are the final unit (they told us it is the final one) or some prototype unit as it has the word “Not for sale” embossed behind the cover. To make matter worst, we received it in a press release A4 size file holder which only consists of the phone, battery and charger. I am glad everything is sorted out and we have received the retail unit of the LG GM730 in a proper box in exchange for the previously worn-out unit.

Here are some unboxing pictures. I will do a review on it soon. Pretty busy right now.

I took a day off and went to the LG Press Conference at Communica Asia 2009 which takes place yesterday at the Singapore Expo. The event name was called “World Premiere of LG’s Newest Feature Packed Smartphone”. 3 phones were mentioned during the press conference. The LG GD900 Crystal, LG GM730 and the LG Viewty Smart (LG GC900).

LG App Store
LG also announces their own LG Application store which will be opened on the 14th July 2009. It will have about 1,400 apps at launch time out of which about 100 of them are free apps. It will have local applications as well as LG dedicated applications. At lunch time it will only support Windows Mobiles app, if I am not wrong Java and Android apps will be supported eventually.
