    LG and PRADA release the PRADA II with matching PRADA Link watch

    Info about the PRADA II mobile phone by LG has been widely available for some time now, but the two companies finally went official ’bout the handset and released a matching watch at the same time. The PRADA Link (really, that’s the best name?) is simply a Bluetooth-enabled device that displays not only the Caller ID, but also full SMS text messages in modern Dick Tracy fashion. The… Read More

    LG Prada II: Tuesday in the UK

    The LG Prada II is coming, thank God. It’s scheduled to debut in the UK, the originator of WAG culture, on Tuesday, November 18. The touchscreen phone, which has a 5-megapixel camera (which was last impressive two years ago), also has a slide-out keyboard, making it more G1 than iPhone. There’s no price just yet (though it was rumored at around €600), which is fantastic considering… Read More

    LG PRADA II now official

    You already know what the PRADA II looks like, and what it’s packing, so the LG PRADA II official announcement is kind of like that Christmas morning when you peeked at all your gifts beforehand. Sorry if we killed the buzz ’bout this 7.2 Mbps HSDPA touchscreen phone, but that’s what we do. The phone is  supposedly going to launch in Europe before the end of this year at… Read More

    LG PRADA II shot leaked

        The Boy Genius just pushed this live shot of what’s purported to be the next product coming from the LG/PRADA partnership, aptly named the PRADA II. Borrowing much from the aesthetics of the original PRADA phone, the only visible change is the slide-out keyboard. Nothing is known about the handset besides what you can see in this shot, so it may be a while before we get wind of… Read More

  • LG VX9700 VZW-bound: Like the Prada phone, just no Prada branding

    [photopress:vx9700.jpg,full,center] Somewhere underneath the giant PHONE ARENA watermark is the latest LG phone destined for your local Verizon Wireless store, the LG VX9700. It’s supposed to be VZW’s Prada-less Prada, complete with fancy touchscreen and bubbly UI. It’s supposed to be available by the end of the month, but last-minute delays may push it back into April or May. Read More

    LG has sold 700,000 Prada phones

    That’s right, friends: LG has sold 700,000 Prada phones so far, surprising us all. I’m trying to get a little more information, but you can be sure that fashionistas everywhere are now rubbing their haptic touchscreens with glee, thankful that they didn’t buy that awful iPhone.

  • China and the lie of luxury

    China and the lie of luxury

    This is a bit off-topic, but it has quite a bit to do with electronics and boutique home audio so let’s begin. Luxury items have always been status symbols and, increasingly, commodity products. This nasty mix creates a drive to sell more product at luxury prices, which is good for the companies but not so good for the consumer. Dana Thomas’ book, Deluxe claws at — but can… Read More

    AT&T LG Prada-ish phone leaked

    Woosah. You have no idea how much this leak pisses me off, but that’s neither here nor there. The Gizza has the scoop on the US AT&T version of the LG Prada, which is the CU920 and not the KE850. This, however, seems to be much better with supposed 3G and it’s pretty lightweight. It has iPhone-like zooming when browsing, but a few more steps required. Who knows when this sucker is… Read More

 
  • Porsche Shows Off Phone That May Not Really Exist

    Porsche Shows Off Phone That May Not Really Exist

    It looks like Porsche is branching out from its mainstream-fancy sports car production and into the cellphone game. In this man’s hand is the Porsche Design Mobile Phone P’9521, whose interface looks a hell of a lot like the Prada’s. It’s a flip phone, my least favorite kind, and I have no idea whether or not it’ll be released or how much Porsche would want to charge… Read More

    LG Tacks On Free Insurance For Prada Owners

    Someone at LG must be on the sauce because this makes no sense at all. The SK mobile phone giant will be giving 60,000 Prada owners free insurance totaling up to $215 and what’s even crazier is the fact that it covers the phone even if you break it. If you decide to run over it with a car or throw it out a 20 story building you’re still covered and this is outside of the regular… Read More

    The LG Prada is Verizon's Answer to the iPhone: Good Luck, Bro

    The $600 LG Prada is Verizon Wireless’ answer to the $500 Apple iPhone… OK, you can stop laughing now. It’s not that the Prada isn’t a good phone or anything—clearly it’s deserving of all the hype. But the thought of VZW “answering” to anything borders on the absurd. Can you imagine the Prada with really hottt V-Cast Tunezzz on it? There’s no… Read More

    LG Wine Phone Has Nothing To Do With Wine, Is Entry Level

    It’s either a phone made for drunks or for people who pretend they’re fancy, like our very own John here. It’s the LG Wine phone (or the LG-SV300) and, aside from the picture of a wine bottle and glass on the phone’s screen, I cannot figure out why it’s called the Wine. The Prada phone makes sense, as does the Shine, and the Chocolate I can understand to a point, but… Read More

    LG Shine Is Here: Dumb, But Very Pretty

    The Shine is coming, the Shine is coming! Actually, it’s already here, for $230 with a 2-year contract. Yup, one of the most hyped cellphones in recent months (alongside the iPhone and LG Prada) is finally available on Verizon Wireless as the LG XV8700. There’s no denying that it’s a pretty phone, but it’s really nothing more than a brushed metal clamshell. (On Verizon, no… Read More

    LG Prada Phone Available as a Pre-Order for the Mentally Deficient

    “Limited Service” is right. After playing with the Prada last week, I can’t say that I’m particularly enthused about this plaything of the deluded. Someone out there might be interested, however, so post we must. The phone is available now from Orange Mobile in the UK for £19.99 for the handset with a £35 per month contract.

    Synaptics: The Prada and the Scrawla

    I popped by Synaptics today, just on a whim, and was lucky to catch the LG Prada in its native habitat: lying, unloved, on a table. All that was missing was a credit card and some blow and we’d have an image of the phone’s true future milieu. But I digress. Read More

  • LG's Prada Phone Unboxed: It's Real, It's Hot

    Thanks to T3, the UK gadget site that likes to exhibit half-naked girls with its gear, we’ve got a peek at a sexy unboxing of the Prada phone. For those not in the know, the Prada is LG’s $775 iPhone contender with style to spare, but it’s always been shrouded in whispers of vaporware or self-inflicted hubris. It is indeed real, as the above video demonstrates. If you’re… Read More

  • LG, Prada Headset For The Label Whores

    The fashion conscious who plan to get their well manicured mitts on the LG Prada will be happy to know that they can also get a matching Bluetooth headset. LG and Prada have teamed up again to release a headset that is set to launch in May. It doesn’t seem to be anything special, but it does have a nice display to show you battery strength, volume and device name….not to mention the Prada… Read More

    The Prada Phone In Its Natural Habitat

    There she is, friends. Hidden behind glass, guarded by beautiful women, ensconced in a leather box. I’m not sure which pre-libidinal fantasy they’re trying to inspire, but it certainly looks like something mommy doesn’t want us to touch. Read More
