LG Prada 3.0

We're live in London at the LG Prada 3.0 event, where the eponymous phone was just announced. Lots more coming up. But in the meantime, hit the break for the specs list and presser.

The PRADA and LG partnership launches the PRADA phone by LG 3.0
combining the ultimate in form and function
London, 14 December 2011: With a heritage of producing handsets that combine the best in style and substance, PRADA and LG today unveiled the partnership’s latest must-have smartphone, the PRADA phone by LG 3.0. This highly anticipated handset is the third phone to come from the collaboration and represents a key design venture for both companies.

The PRADA phone by LG 3.0 combines PRADA’s distinctive style with LG’s innovative technology, including one of the biggest and brightest screens in the world with 4.3inch and 800-nit screen.

Styled with PRADA’s clean and sharp design philosophy, the handset features a full glossy touchscreen to the front and PRADA’s signature Saffiano pattern to the back, all finished in classic black. With every detail designed for chic simplicity, this handset also boasts LG’s signature Floating Mass Technology, optically enhancing the thinness of its already impressive 8.5mm depth, with minimal hardkeys completing the sleek simple finish.

As effective as it is striking, the PRADA phone by LG 3.0 boasts a 1.0GHz Dual-Core/Dual-Channel architecture for high-speed performance, and dual-band wi-fi for high-speed surfing on the go.

The smartphone’s sleek design is also reflected once switched on. The PRADA phone by LG 3.0 offers a specially created user interface featuring a unique black, grey and white menu and icons. Through this interface users can enjoy all the latest benefits of Android’s Gingerbread OS, with a future scheduled upgrade to Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich.

This unique user interface experience can be enjoyed on the device’s 800-nit, 4.3inch NOVA High Brightness Display, allowing users to view all their favorite photos and content even in direct sunlight. Plus with an 8MP camera and up to 8GB of user memory, all Life’s Good moments can be captured and enjoyed in high quality.

To complement the handset, users will have access to a full line of PRADA phone accessories such as a PRADA branded cradle and Bluetooth ear set. Users can also carry their PRADA phone by LG 3.0 in a range of stylish pouches.

LG Prada 3.0 gets officially official


Too bad it'll never sell stateside. Here's to hoping. Everyone needs a casual/work phone like the nexus. And then a sexy night out on the town phone like the LG Prada. This phone has been on my wish list for three years now. Maybe finally a St Patrick's present to myself.

Too bad its junk...like prada in general. If it is more than $50 on contract...waste of money, just paying for PRADA....

Well...Yeah. It's not like their purses are actually worth the money you have to pay to get one either; it's all about the prestige of owning the name.

Like anyone really uses FFC's anyway. This phone is all about the name PRADA but I am sure that the users of this phone will enjoy special treatment of some kind that no other phone manufacture offers. Maybe free coffee from Starbucks on Wednesdays if you present your PRADA phone to the barista.

If people that have the money want to spend it on said phone, why knock them? I just pointed out the lack of a FFC which most (if not all) smartphones releasing second-half 2011 have.

And speak for yourself. I know plenty of people that use Facetime, Skype, or whatever app allows you to video chat daily because of the convenience. Coming from a Blackberry to an Android, I (for one) am excited about having the option available after seeing it in use the last few months by friends and colleagues.

If the devil wears prada, he's behind the times. This phone is yesterdays tech. Seriously LG? This is a poor excuse for a release event phone.
