Don't like Korean phones... And branding it Prada? They've just put off most of the guys who would have bought that phone.

I have to say it looks half decent but the biggest let down with LG are it's UI and the browser. LG for some reason uses the crappiest browser available (I've developed mobile sites and LG phones have the worst display ever) and I'm sure the touch screen will be as bad as the Chocolate phone - scrolling through like contact lists or a web page on a Chocolate phone takes so many taps that you get RSI.

I hope I'm wrong on this LG though chances are quite slim...

Summing up - looks half decent lacks substance.

WATCH OUT!! SONY! LG is definately moving up the ladder of Mobile phone sales in the world. Currently NOKIA,MOTOROLA,SAMSUNG are standing firmly at the top (respectively). SONY better come up with something special to keep their spot. LG have invested $6 billion in digital technology (mainly LCDs and communications) to move up the sales ladder. Recent market favorite "LG Chocolate" has proven themselves that they are worthy mobile phone makers (already a very popular brand in Asia). Although I don't expect the popularity of MOTOROLA and SONY to die away that quickly, I suspect LG will take over their spots within the next 5 years. Just check out the line up of LG phones for 2007. They have already announced various KE series, and they are simply "Superb", and Unpresedented to their rivals (mainly design wise).

"run with a Macromedia Flash user interface."

Sounds like crap! Who in sane mind would consider to make a user Interface using Flash, in a Cellphone?!

the phone must be featured with a Intel Dual Core to run that... lol

The cool thing is... may be it will be easy to make your own UI, if you have Flash Skills :P

this phone will be released in Europe in February 2007

i-phone will be released in USA in June 2007 and in europe in end of 2007

how can anyone dare to say its an i-phone imitation?
surely its being developed since several months,
dont think LG can make miracles snapping the fingers and making an i-clone appear

even to give a judjement of this phone is too early
since we just know very few details, so, sit and wait.

its just the new trend of phones, bigger screens,
touch screen technology, and so on

i guess we'll see a lot of models on this line of design
in next months

my mistake with the links.

first one is a detailed view of Multi-touch and its capabilities, an old idea but one finally brought to the market by way of iPhone.

second is apple's site detailing all the iPhone can do.

the prada phone is nothing more than the same old touchscreens that suck today. that's why we don't like them, they suck!!

apple iPhone is futuristic, Multi-touch. something we've never seen in a consumer product.

that's where Apple has the 200 patents, in the interface. that is what will separate the iPhone from this.

the iPhone has all the power of a Macintosh computer with full HTML web browsing. look at the interface of this phone, it looks like a Samsung phone UI. we're supposed to navigate a touchscreen with that?

it's nothing new. the iPhone will blow this away.

The iPhone is 2.0mpx only, mate.
This thing is gorgeous, but I'll save my kudos for whenever we see it functioning and gsmarena takes care of a good-crafted review.
OpenMoko, anyone?

4TH0, lol @ you not knowing what youre talking about, how is the screen 'not really that big' its bloody 3" larger than most HTC devices and where did you get the info that the iPhones camera is 3mpx, its 2mpx just like this. To the person asking about a non Prada version of this, its just called the KE850.

I hope it has full screen video replay in high resolution. As a PRADA phone, does it come with PRADA carry case or a bag ?
