Perfect present for your boozy mother, the LG 'Wine' phone

Mobile phones

Over in Korea, LG has shown off their ‘Wine’ phone, which unfortunately doesn’t bar you from dialing your ex’s number, offer a drunk-to-sober SMS translation service, nor cure you of your Merlot-induced hangovers the next day.

No doubt named in homage to the red wine-coloured model, it features a 2.4″ external display and 1.8″ internal one according to AVING, however by the looks of the photo above, I’d say it’s actually in reverse. Aimed at 30-40 year olds supposedly, the phone is near-on featureless, with ‘enhanced voice calling’, ‘SMS sending and receiving functionality’ listed.

Still, it’s offered with a leather case for ‘a good feeling of grip’, which’ll be needed when your senile mother goes overboard and has two glasses of red with dinner instead of one.
