LG Prada II November Leak
LG's Prada II touchscreen media phone already has largely fixed launch plans, a tip to Pocket-lint asserts. Official statements from LG have so far only slated an update for the fall, but an alleged insider now says the touchscreen device will ship in November and that Europe will be the first to pick up the Prada sequel, as it did for the original phone in spring 2007.
The informally-named Prada II has so far been described as a major update with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3G data, a five-megapixel camera and Wi-Fi. Its significantly expanded frequency support should also include US phone and 3G bands and may see an LG announcement after November, though it's still unknown whether this will involve a deal with AT&T or an unlocked device that would also work with T-Mobile.
