LG Prada II launch info

Expanding on official details from last month, the LG-built Prada II handset will launch November 18th, according to a Thursday report. The fashion phone expands significantly on the original with a 5-megapixel camera and a a QWERTY keyboard underneath the 3-inch, 400x240 touchscreen display preserved from the earlier phone. Unlike the original Prada, the handset will also have support for 3G data networks and video calling capabilities.

Fast Internet access is accomplished thanks to 7.2Mbps HSDPA on the cellular network or via Wi-Fi when connected to local hotspots. A full HTML browser makes Internet surfing less compromised than on lesser handsets. The Prada II will play back MPEG-4, H.263 and H.264 video formats as well as AAC, MP3, WMA, and RealAudio music files.

Pricing for the handset in Italy, UK, France, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands is expected to reach 600, or the equivalent of about $750. US information is still unavailable, though the Prada II is the first to support North American GSM and 3G bands and is more likely to reach the territory as a result.
