LG's KE850 Prada phone gets official unveiling – and imminent European launch

Share

Can’t wait for the iPhone to arrive? Well, you can get your hands on another very fashionable handset much sooner when the LG KE850 Prada phone arrives in Europe next month.

Like the iPhone (but beating it to market), the KE850, sized at just 98.8 × 54 × 12mm, is a touchscreen-only mobile phone, in this case using a 3-inch display with 240×400 resolution. The display is a minimalist white on black – no iPhone-style coloured icons here.

In terms of specifications, the KE850 is tri-band, EDGE compatible and features a 2 megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach lens and LED flash, Bluetooth 2.0, an MPEG4 video player and an audio player with MP3/ACC/ACC+/WMA/RA support. There’s also a document viewer supporting Microsoft’s PPT, DOC, XLS formats, plus PDF and TXT. Memory is via SD card – none built-in I’m afraid.

According to LG, the phone will hit mobile stores and Prada shops in Europe from the end of February. The price quoted is 600 Euros – but we’ll probably have a better idea of that and which networks are opting for the handset as that Euro launch date approaches.

  • I am interested in the LG Prada phone and wanted to know when this will be lauched in the UK. Also when will this be on the T-Mobile network?
