We usually tank posts on new handset colors – yes, folks, we do listen when you yell and cry out – but we're so fond of LG's Shine, that we couldn't resist this time. No reason to think they've packed any new goodies under the hood here, we're thinking it's purely a cosmetic refresh on an otherwise excellent handset. We do, however, wonder why the new palette didn't get applied to the entire handset, but are fairly sure it will find some admirers out there who appreciate the red gift-wrapping. No word on if a non-Korean version will land on our shores, but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled.
