LG Prada Unlocked in US
The Prada phone by LG is available in the US as an unlocked device, according to a new review. While its February launch as a tri-band GSM device largely excluded the phone from an official launch with a US carrier, the touchscreen phone is known to work with both AT&T and T-Mobile in San Francisco and other areas that support the phone's 1900MHz band. All of the features of the Prada remain intact, including its 2-megapixel camera, AAC/MP3 playback, and MPEG-4 videos.
As the phone isn't officially listed for either network, the LG device must be purchased through third-party resellers at $849 without contract discounts and requires an unrestricted SIM card from either AT&T or T-Mobile. [via CNET]
