Compare GW520 Calisto Deals

The LG GW520 Calisto in blue is a touchscreen phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Ideal for texters, the GW520 also benefits from 3G, making it an excellent device for all kinds of mobile communication, including Web browsing. As a little aside, you can set up avatars for your closest friends on the home screen, then click an avatar to view messages.

A quad-band phone suitable for the international traveller, it offers fast browsing through 3G/HSDPA with a WAP 2.0 interface, plus SMS, MMS, instant messaging and email messaging options. Data transfer is fast, with EDGE available and, for short-range, wireless Bluetooth.

At 125 g, the Calisto is quite heavy but the screen is 2.8-inches across, making the possibility of interacting with Web sites such as Youtube and Facebook a realistic option. The display can also make the best of the 3 megapixel camera with video recording.

Internal memory is 40 MB, but the GW520 can accept microSD cards up to 8GB.  Battery life is rated at 4.5 hours’ talk time and 500 hours on standby from a full charge.
