I’m quickly becoming obsessed with LG’s as-yet unreleased U990 mobile (otherwise known as the ‘Viewty’), with it having the aesthetics of the LG Prada, minus the Prada branding, and compensating by packing a huge amount of extra features for us less fashionable sorts who shop at Primark.
Susi got her hands on one last week, and even did a quick video review, with thanks to the network 3 (who’ll be selling the phone later this year), but we haven’t seen any proper photos of it yet – until now. It’s just been officially confirmed, and will be flying storewide by Autumn this year. Which, err, judging by the weather, should’ve been about three months ago.
As you should know, it looks just like the Prada phone, but packs a 5-megapixel camera (complete with Schneider Kreuznach optics), a 120 frames-per-second video camera, HSDPA, 170MB of internal memory – which, of course, expands with those gorgeous MicroSD cards which everyone should own approximately eight of, plus it plays MP3s! More photos of this tasty offering from LG after the jump.
