The strangely named Prada Phone by LG 3.0 (common sense says it should probably have been Prada Phone 3.0 by LG, if not just LG Prada 3.0 – then again, maybe there’s something called LG 3.0 out there somewhere) is now available in the UK, SIM-free and unlocked. That’s just on schedule, since we heard this would happen in ‘early February‘ – and here we are.
Despite carrying the Prada name on its front fascia, the new LG-made smartphone isn’t as expensive as you’d expect, instead being priced in line with all current high-end handsets.
Unlocked Mobiles will give you one if you pay £424.98, and Clove is asking £429.99 for the same device. Both prices naturally include VAT, but you’ll have to pay for transport on top of those. Just a heads up.
The Prada Phone by LG 3.0 has a 4.3-inch 480×800 touchscreen, an 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing 1.3 MP camera, a dual-core 1 GHz processor, 8 GB of built-in storage, 1 GB of RAM, HSPA, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, a 3.5 mm headset jack, and a 1,540 mAh battery. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, complete with a Prada UI custom skin.
