About LG Xenon GR500

The LG Xenon (GR500f) has been created for teenagers who aren't willing or don’t have the money to pay for a comprehensive smartphone, but who still want to use the Internet via their mobile phone. The Xenon has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard as well as various shortcut keys for messaging applications. One important note: This phone is exclusive to Telstra's Next G Network.

The LG Xenon is much like the Telstra Hiptop Slide, which is an extremely popular re-branded Sidekick smartphone from the US. This phone is also designed for adolescents, but technologically it far surpasses the Hiptop, the full touch-screen interface being the first major advancement you’ll notice.
