LG shows off it's first video conferencing capable cell phone

LG today unveiled its KU950 video conferencing capable phone at CES. The KU950 features a unique form factor with a swiveling display previously available on Samsung phones.

Swiveling the display sideways reveals a keypad and a video camera. The video camera can be used for video conferencing with other users with video conferencing capable phones.

Video conferencing aside, the KU950 features an LCD capable of displaying 240x320 lines of resolution with a 1.3 mega-pixel camera. Other notable features include integrated Bluetooth wireless and a microSD expansion slot. The KU950 is also capable of receiving broadcast TV too.

It’s unknown when the KU950 will hit the market in North America. However, representatives from the company say Verizon is expected to carry a cut down variant of the KU950 later this quarter. The cut down version unfortunately lacks video conference capabilities.
