The touchscreen LG GD900 Crystal's transparent, touch-sensitive, glass keypad looks cool but is pretty pointless.

If you're Wonder Woman and you need a phone that complements your invisible plane, the LG GD900 Crystal packs a good range of features into a unique body. But it doesn't look as cool as we'd hoped, and two touchscreens sometimes prove too much of a good thing, leading to inadvertent taps. The GD900's responsive keypad makes up for the poor on-screen keyboard typical of LG touchscreen phones, but the S-Class user interface needs to improve before the phone can be truly pleasurable to use.
