Register Hardware reports: [edited]

LG has launched a sliderphone handset with an integrated Bluetooth earpiece - a world first, the company claimed.

The handset's dubbed the 'Decoy' - or, more formally, the LG-VX8610. As you can see from the pics, the headset slips into a bay on the back, where it's kept charged and ready to be released at the push of a spring-loaded button.

LG said the Decoy will come to the US on 16 July through a deal with Verizon. But it expects to bring the handset and its 'hidden' headset to other countries in due course.

Brett's 2p'orth: I'm attracted to anything that makes keeping batteries topped-up more easierer. However although the two priddy laydeez seem overjoyed with their cameras, to my eyes LG's implementation is cludgy and unattractive.
