LG Cookie could tempt touchscreen fans

16 December 2008 — 5:10 PM

Shoppers looking for a replacement handset after having recycled old mobile phones could be tempted by a new model from LG.

The South Korean manufacturer has followed the release of flagship models such as the eight-megapixel KC910 Renoir with another handset that makes use of touchscreen technology.

However, a review this week by the Pocket-lint website, highlights the fact that the major difference in the LG KP500, which is also known as the Cookie, is its availability to those on a budget.

It claims pay-as-you-go customers looking for the latest phones could enjoy the handset's three-megapixel camera and, although lacking in GPS and Wi-Fi, may also like the price.

"For less than £100 on prepay it's an option for anyone who wants something with the latest tech at a bargain basement price," it states.

"There's not a whole lot not to dislike with the LG Cookie."

Earlier this year LG announced it would launch a follow-up to the fashion-conscious Prada - under the name of the Prada II.
