LG has finally taken the lid off of the biscuit tin and revealed the specifications and price of its latest cost-conscious caller: the KP500 Cookie.

LG's KP500 Cookie sports haptic feedback

First announced last month, the KP500 has a 3in touchscreen display and haptic feedback technology to ensure you’re always aware of which key you press on the phone’s virtual Qwerty keypad.

Images can be snapped on the phone’s three-megapixel camera and an integrated accelerometer will ensure that pictures are always displayed in the correct orientation. Video can also be captured at 12f/s.

Much like the Android-based T-Mobile G1 - previewed here - the Cookie also allows users to place their favourite widgets, such as the MP3 player icon, on the phone’s home screen for speedier access. Phones with a stylus may be a dying breed these days, but the KP500 includes one to let users take full advantage of the phone’s handwriting recognition tech.

In terms of connectivity, the phone supports calls over quad-band GSM and enables web surfing over... sigh... Edge. Bluetooth’s included too.

LG’s KP500 Cookie will be available next month from Carphone Warehouse and O2 on a pay-as-you-go tariff. The phone will cost £160 ($290/€200). It’ll come bundled with £10 of credit.
