LG KP500 (LG Cookie)

 LG KP500 Discontinued
5th October 2008, Updated 30th October 2008

It seems that just about every other phone launched these days is a touchscreen device, and the LG KP500 is no exception. LG in particular are very keen on this type of phone, so what sets the KP500 apart from other touchscreen phones in LG's range?

Simply put, the main proposition behind the LG KP500 is price - it's a fair bit cheaper than many other touchscreen phones. LG Germany say that the recommended SIM-free price is €229 (around £180) although realistically we would expect the street price to be a lot cheaper, and it will most likely be free with most contracts.

It has some impressive specifications - a 3 inch 240 x 400 pixel display (like the LG Renoir), a 3.2 megapixel camera, microSD expandable memory, a multimedia player and an FM radio being the main ones. However, to keep the price down the LG KP500 lacks 3G, WiFi or GPS and the camera isn't as good as the 5 megapixel and 8 megapixel units we have been seeing recently.

At just 89 grams in weight and 107 x 55 x 12mm in size, the LG KP500 is pretty compact for a touchscreen device. LG say that the KP500 should be available at the end of October in Europe in black, brown, silver and gold colour combinations.

Update: LG have announced that the "pet name" for the KP500 will be the "LG Cookie"
