LG Unveils Prada Phone With Touch Screen
Jan 18, 2007, 1:43 PM by (staff)
LG today took the wraps off the phone that resulted from a partnership with Prada. The two companies hinted at the device a few months ago and today announced a small, smooth, monoblock phone dominated by a capacitive touchscreen - similar to the iPhone. LG's version runs an Adobe Flash-based interface designed by Prada, which is black and silver, to match the phone itself. It is a tri-band GSM/EDGE (900/1800/1900) handset that features a 2 Megapixel camera, Bluetooth, MicroSD slot, media player and document reader. The Prada phone will go on sale in select stores in Europe for 600 Euro ($775) next month. There are no plans to bring the phone to the US, however it is due out in select Asian markets in the second quarter.

Finally! The low quality of LG with the high price of Prada!
I'll take "Things that are almost certain to break"...
I'd say this actually looks far more durable than most phones. A solid block with almost no buttons (fewer moving parts)? Sounds solid to me, in more ways than one.
The touchscreen isn't an issue, because it's capacitative. The cool thing a...
Even though LG+GSM is usually not so good
I know it's PRADA... but still
I know it's PRADA.. but too much money for me..
I would rather get Shine and be happy with it
