LG Electronics (LG) has launched the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 in the UK. The new full touchscreen phone maintains the core, hugely popular elements of the original LG Cookie handset, though boasts a sleeker design and upgraded features. Available in a choice of bold colour variations with numerous theme options, it is the most distinctive handset of the LG Cookie Series yet.
Sociability is a key feature of the LG Cookie Fresh GS290, with easy-to-use functions designed to help users keep in touch with their friends, irrespective of time and place, through a visually dynamic, interactive experience. The handset offers a simple SNS connector, allowing direct access to social networks with a dedicated Facebook interface, while LiveSquare lets users set custom animated characters to the contacts they interact with most, bringing social networks to life.
“The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 reflects our efforts to bring creativity and fun to the mobile touch-phone experience,” said Paul Trueman, marketing director UK and Ireland for LG Electronics. “Over 13 million units of the original LG Cookie have been sold worldwide and by extending the Cookie range we’re continuing to provide affordable full touchscreen phones to consumers. The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 builds on the original Cookie device with even more fun features and personalisation options.”
The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 will be available shortly at Vodafone, Virgin, Tesco and Phones4u.
