LG Tops Prada II

LG today said that it has sold one million Prada phones worldwide, making it one of the Korean company's best-selling individual touchscreen devices. The device was one of the earliest direct competitors to the iPhone and was developed at roughly the same time with a launch a few months earlier. Individually, the device has fared relatively poorly compared to its Apple rival's over six million but forms part of a larger touchscreen lineup that LG said slightly edged Apple in July.

The cellphone maker also explained that the team-up has been successful enough to spur the launch of a sequel by the end of the year. No details have been announced, but the official statement supports an earlier leak that would point to a Prada II launch in the fall. The handset is said to address a number of the limitations with the original Europe-focused phone, including full 3G with US support, Wi-Fi, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a five-megapixel camera.

    silly LG

    LG, which by most accounts is an established cell phone manufacturer is forced to say, "Yeah, but if you count all of our touchscreen cell phones across all of the carriers we sell them to, across all the globe, you'll see we've sold more than the little pipsqueak upstart who sold a single device through limited carriers in limited markets."
