Prada Phone with Mobile TV
LG and Prada together updated their jointly developed Prada phone by LG with the SB310, also known as the LB3100. Launched just a few months after the original, the updated version adds DMB support to the handset: owners can now watch digital terrestrial broadcasts on the touchscreen phone, taking advantage of the tall 3-inch display to watch TV either in standard ratio or widescreen. An antenna keeps reception strong but folds neatly into the phone to preserve its clean lines, LG says.
Features are otherwise unchanged on the Prada phone, which keeps its 2-megapixel camera and 12mm body. The DMB version is the first to ship in Korea and will be available as the SB310 through local carrier SKT or as the LB3100 for LG Telecom. LG has yet to announce a version for North America.
