LG Prada 3.0 Officially Announced For Fashionistas Everywhere

By Sam Gibbs on at

After rumours, sketches and leaked shots, the LG Prada 3.0 has finally been unveiled. With its 4.3-inch WVGA "NOVA" display, 8.5mm profile and Prada-styled Android skin, it's certainly a looker. Whether that's your thing or not, it's not all looks and no substance.

It's powered by a dual-core 1GHz TI chip, and packs both a 1.3MP front-facing snapper for video calling, and a rear 8MP camera for point-and-shoot replacement duties.

Unfortunately you're saddled with a tweaked version of Gingerbread with a Prada skin, but LG has gone to great lengths to ensure that Prada's style is replicated throughout -- from the leather-effect on the back, to the startling monochrome icons, it's a very polished look.

On the connectivity front it's well endowed -- HSPDA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and even an FM tuner is at your disposal. Maybe the high-fashion conscious can finally get themselves a phone that isn't a lame duck -- seems like third time's the charm for the high-fashion pairing.
