it's not a smartphone (no decent operating system)
it's not a PDA (touchscreen + operating system)
it's a... standard phone with full qwerty keyboard

Of course it wasn't perfect since first try isnt the best. In this 2nd version we hope they fixed the bugs in LG Prada...
Smartphone is a phone that enables you installing of 3rd party software and has advanced PIM and conectivity features. For example every symbian or windows mobile phone is considerd a smarthpone.
nice new feature to compensate all the other faults of this phone. this touch screen phone has such a delayed response by the time it reacts to your touch you've probably forgotten what you were trying to do in the first place! I switched to the Armani phone, much quicker response WAY Better quality, more durable (the prada phone is a cheap plastic) and the Armani is still to date the smallest and slimmest touch screen phone
It's a high end fashion designer branded phone, and as such, that's why the high asking price. However, is it worth it to most people? Probably not. I'll be getting a Nokia 5800 Tube for my touch phone needs and ignoring the "fashion phone" - I even work in fashion! LOL!
Wow, i cant wait to get this beuty, 810 USD not much for Prada-LG, check how much Samsung Armani cost with much less features than Prada II.
X1 alternative? pretty far from that...
X1 is a smart winmo phone. this is a fashion phone & will probably not be a smartphone.
It looks way nicer than the Xperia but that's the problem with LG handsets, most of the time they just LOOK nice and then 6 months down the road, little problems start occurring until the phone just becomes unusable a year after purchase. At least that's what happened with two LG phones I've owned in addition to problems a bunch of my friends who own them have with battery life, construction, etc.
This phone has be announced already few months ago. So its not a copy of X1. Also LG Prada was the first full-touch-screen phone on the market. Here are some other details:
- Quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900)
- WCDMA 900/2100
- 7.2 Mbps HSDPA connectivity
- 3″ WQVGA 400×240 px TFT touchscreen
- 5 megapixel camera
front camera for video calls
- Wi-Fi b/g connectivity
- USB 2.0, Bluetooth
- Full HTML browsing
- microSDHC memory card slot (up to 8GB)
- slide-out QWERTY keyboard
If its running on WinMo or at least can do PushMail, I'm considering it !!!
looks good, respectable features, possible alternative to x1. from the pics though there is loads of space on the front for a much bigger screen.
