SlashGear Unboxing: LG’s gorgeous Prada phone

Were I a superficial person, I’d judge manufacturers by the swishness of their packaging; Apple would obviously score highly, whereas most mobile phones – in their crummy thin cardboard boxes and egg-box moulded insert trays – would languish at the bottom of the pile. However, LG’s Prada cellphone is an exception to the rule; I got my hands on one the other day, and thought I’d share the unboxing with you…


Questions abound: is the touchscreen interface easy to use? Is the Prada influence more than skin-deep? Is that really my accent? Two-thirds of these questions will be answered in our full LG Prada phone review, later this week!

LG Prada Bluetooth headset for your Prada Phone

Talk about having zero info – there’s absolutely nothing I can tell you about this Bluetooth headset other than it’s made by LG Electronics and Prada will sell it in May.


LG climbs into bed with Microsoft under their PRADA sheets?

All Apple/Microsoft fanboys and girls should make their way over to MYiPhone, where a discussion is kicking off about an apparent collaboration between LG and Microsoft that puts Windows Mobile 6 onto the rather sexy PRADA phone.  Now previews of the handset so far have shown it running a sparse Flash Lite UI, but according to Business Week it’ll likely hit the market using the Microsoft Smartphone OS.

It’ll be interesting to see how sales figures compare to the amount of hype these two phones – and maybe now the Samsung F700 too – have gathered since announcement.

LG Parnters with Prada for next iconic phone

LG is courting all sorts of artists and designers to create iconic products from bejeweled appliances to now a Prada mobile phone. This iconic phone-to-be will boast a combination of high-end technology with avant-garde design and will obviously feature that soon-to-be-ubiquitous glossy touch-sensitive navigation interface instead of a conventional keypad.

Expect this fashionable phone to launch in early 2007, starting in Europe and Asia. US is left out as always. Haute mobile couture anyone?
