A cracking camera phone that could easily replace a mid-range digital compact camera. the LG Viewty Smart isn't as smart as it hopes to be and certainly not versatile enough to threaten the big boys The LG Viewty Smart (CG900) carries on the heritage of the first LG Viewty (KU990), which sold over 6.5 million units. Especially when you consider that Viewty Mark 1 found itself fighting an almost impossible popularity battle against the first i Phone.Credit then to LG, who didn't pitch the original Viewty as a rival to Apple's revolutionary mobile.
I really hope it will not have the same problems with the motherboard some of the other reviewers described.
The phone was not supplied with any software or cable, but my family member had obtained a cable in the expectation of downloading the software from LG. The KU990 was apparently provided with LG PC Suite version 2, and I found various posts around the net stating that LG had said that version 2 would also work with the 990i, however, despite obtaining a copy of LG PC Suite 2 I was unable to communicate with the phone successfully.
Eventually I was led to try LG PC Suite 3, and with some fiddling was eventually able to get communication working.2.
It will be a great gesture of good will and customer care if LG despite of discontinuing this product does actually make the upgrade available for those of us who run the legacy phones.
