The partnership between the mobile phones manufacturer LG Electronics and the design house Prada has now given birth to the LG Prada 2 mobile phone, a direct upgrade to the original KE850 model.
This new handset offers new technology and hidden features but retains much of the exterior designing. The Prada 2 phone, which is correctly known as the LG KF900 Prada 2, looks very similar to the original model but the biggest difference is a hidden slide out Qwerty keyboard that takes the emphasis away from pure touchscreen input.
The ultra thin keyboard that slides out from under the handset makes this a completely different animal form its predecessor. Specification wise, the Prada 2 has moved on in leaps and bounds and includes a five megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach lens, WiFi, HTML browser and video calling to name but a few improvements.
There is also likely to be a silver edition launched in line with the original offering.
The LG KF900 Prada 2 has been initially launched on Orange pay monthly contract deals in the UK, although it is widely expected that this will expand to the other UK networks.
Prada has also launched an elegant, Bluetooth digital wristwatch, known as Prada Link. Crafted from high quality leather and stainless steel, owners can monitor calls and read texts remotely. It is a useful and glamorous accessory and it is water resistant so users can keep in touch even whilst relaxing in the bath.
