The PRADA Phone by LG 3.0 will hit UK shelves in early February, retailers have confirmed, with the unlocked Android 2.3 smartphone priced at £429.99 ($666) including tax.
The Droid RAZR will also be getting an Ice Cream Sandwich update, while its unknown whether or when the 4.0 version of Android will come to the Prada Phone (seeing as its a fashion phone, LG and Prada may decide it doesnt even need it).
The PRADA phone will be unlocked and usable on all United Kingdom wireless carriers.
The Prada Phone 3.0 also comes with “tri-dual” design meaning it has a dual-core 1 GHz processor and 512MB of RAM per core, giving a total of 1GB RAM.
The Prada phone by LG 3.0 was announced last week at a London press event, where the phone that has been designed by Prada will be available first in Asian markets before arriving in Europe.
The 4.3-inch 800480 screen is the largest yet on an official PRADA device, and surprisingly, the internals dont dissapoint either.
The dual-core OMAP 4430 processor seen last week is apparently clocked at 1GHz, with a high definition screen showing off a classy monotone Android skin, lying over Gingerbread version 2.3.7.
The Prada 3.0 takes most of its technical specs cues from the LG Optimus 3D as well as typical Android phones, with its 1GHz dual core, dual channel processor, 8GB internal storage (with a slot for a microSD card), GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, and an 8MP camera.
Prada phone by LG 3.0 has been co-produced by LG and Prada, where LG came up with the hardware for the phone – whilst Prada had a hand to play in the design, along with the user interface and their exclusively designed Saffiano rear to the phone.
