What better way to say "this is most assuredly not a real Renoir" than by busting the 8 megapixel camera all the way down to a pathetic three-tenths of a megapixel? The good news, we suppose, is that you'll pay just $107 for the LC (yes, LC) KC910 -- but in exchange for your thrift and utter disreg...

So out of the blue we hear that the LG Renoir KC910 has become the KC910i. A quick inspection of LG's booth shows this as true, so we just had to find one off the tether to compare with the original -- and a kindly employee's own KC910 was donated for the cause. So what's new? Well, so far as we...

We heard some impressive claims about LG's Renoir earlier this month at CES courtesy of a rather desperate spokesman, but nothing compares to the torture test the phone recently underwent and, unlike Nokia's 5800, survived. The handset was left in the freezer at -20C (-4F) for 12 hours, dropped to...

It's not quite slotMusic, but it looks like SanDisk is intent on offering yet another option for memory card-bound content, and this time its enlisted the help of LG to make it happen. This setup is intended to let cellphone carriers offer content that would only be able to be used on "approved hand...

Though it has been out for some time, we'd not had the chance to really check out LG's Renoir properly -- even though Engadget Spanish has had a chance. Of course, LG's massive booth featured an area dedicated to this 8 megapixel effort that we had to almost fight through to get at this phone. The...

Oh sure, you've seen LG's KC910 (or Renoir, if you prefer) out in the wild before, but our kid brothers and sisters over at Engadget Spanish were able to get up close and personal with the 8-megapixel handset during its formal introduction in Spain. Specs wise, there's nothing to discuss that you a...

Based on what we've learned about LG's KC910 (or the Renoir, as it's affectionately known), we had all ideas it was being reserved for corners of the globe not named USA. But after taking one look at the specifications on the outfit's Global web portal, we're beginning to have second thoughts. Gran...
