LG Cookie breaks into UK
LG Electronics has launched the Cookie Series, a range of brightly coloured phones aimed at the youf generation.
Each Cookie comes with a touchscreen QWERTY keyboard, which claims to allow "easy texting without the bulk of a physical keyboard". Hmm, does anyone actually prefer touchscreen typing?
As with many phones aimed at first-timers, the Cookie series come with dedicated social network support and instant messenger. With a two tone design and cartoony UI, other features include an FM radio, 3.5mm headphone jack and microSD slot.
Can you get them chocolate chipped?
Customers have the choice of three handsets:
LG Cookie, the more compact of the three, comes with a 2.4in screen.
LG Cookie Style has a 2.8in screen and is available in a range of colours with accents on the front button panel.
Finally the LG Cookie 3G, which takes the biscuit with faster connectivity and data transmission.
Pricing isn't available yet, but the Cookie Series will hit UK stores in September. ®
another for touchscreen
I hate using my thumbs for typing on phones so my X10s onscreen keyboard is wonderful for typing with a finger.
I doubt I'll ever go back to a physical keyboard now.
Thats a little silly considering the KP500/KP501 was released about a year and it's known as the cookie.
LG Cookie? is this new?
I bought one at Carphone Warehouse last November.
Maybe they do get it?
Maybe they do? I'm sure these phones are cheap to make and cheap RRP.
Adults may buy something better, but parents buying for their kids will balk at the cost of an Android phone or iPhone.
LG don't get it
Unfortunately LG vis one of those sad Eastern companies that simply don't get it.
We don't want a modern phone with resistive touch screens, a UI that can't keep up with the user and its UI is totally brain dead designed so to irritate Western users constantly.
(Why would LG put a gallery function on its phones that doesn't display the image in full screen mode for example?).
I assume it must be a Western/Eastern culture thing or otherwise LG isn't giving the prototypes to Beta/Gamma users to test drive.
No wonder people buy the iPhone or an Android.
I'll never buy another LG.
