LG Viewty Getting The Silver Treatment Too

Shortly after the news of the new silver edition of the LG Prada phone they are performing the same color change on the Viewty. The Viewty has sold over 550k units since its inception and that is apparently the reason they are launching a new color.

They are calling it "Dark Silver" because "titanium" is boring, but other than the new color it still retains the 3-inch touchscreen, the same Prada UI (hopefully with the upgraded keyboard software though) and the HSDPA. However there is a new jog wheel which should give your BlackBerry thumb a little exercise.

The new silver edition should be selling for the same as the black model, and they are talking about bringing more colors to market. I agree with Chris Davies, a nice dark, metallic red would be an awesome color for this mobile phone as long as the UI was similarly colored. In case you were wondering, the Viewty is apparently selling for very close to the same price as the Prada phone, which is around $500.
