You mean fashion-forward handsets like the LG Prada KE850 can’t get by on looks and designer label alone?
Even traditionally feature-lacking luxury phones like those from Nokia’s luxury arm, Vertu, are starting to adopt current-generation technology in their super-expensive handsets. And, in keeping with this trend, it looks like LG is working on a successor to their LG KE850 Prada phone.
The LG Prada II, as it’s apparently going to be called, will reportedly sport a 5 megapixel camera and HSDPA 3G connectivity on the coveted 850Mhz band. That’s all good news for feature-hungry fashionistas out there, but will it be enough to compete with the iPhone 3G and its unmatched UI?
We’ll have to wait and see how the LG Prada II fares against the iPhone 3G and the HTC Touch Pro… and the HTC Dream G1… and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1… you get the point.
