LG's midrange GM205, GM210, and GM310 go heavy on the music

LG's made no secret of its tie-up with the maestros over at Dolby to improve the quality of sound on the go, and the latest fruits of that partnership are coming together as the GM205, GM210, and GM310. Starting on the low end, the GM205 candybar features 2.1-channel audio, a 2 megapixel camera, and memory expansion to 2GB (seems like everything supports microSDHC these days, so this is a bit of a disappointment even in the lower market segments). Moving on up, the GM210 switches over to a slider configuration and ups the expandability to 4GB; the GM310 is the most interesting of the bunch, though, with 3G data, a 3 megapixel camera, and memory expansion all the way up to 32GB -- not to say you're going to have an easy time finding those kinds of cards at this point. The handsets feature LG's Sound Engine, which tweaks audio based on nine presets depending on the kind of music you're listening to; not particularly unique, but considering the price range we're expecting these to go for, they're packing a fair bit of audio technology. We don't have dates just yet, but look for 'em to hit in a variety of Asian and Latin American countries.
