The LG Prada 3.0
, excuse us, the Prada Phone by LG 3.0, is now available from T-Mobile U.K. after its initial launch as an unsubsidized model. This is the first go around for the LG Prada as a smartphone as Android 2.3 is installed, driving the device. T-Mobile U.K. is offering the phone for free
with a signed 2-year contract to its "Full Monty" plan, which will run you 36 GBP a month ($57.10 USD). The plan includes unlimited text, data, and 2000 minutes. If that is too pricey, there are a number of plans available at 31 GBP with unlimited text, 300 to 900 minutes and various data plans.
The LG Prada 3.0 is equipped with a 4.3 inch screen with a very bright 800 nit display. With a WVGA resolution, the screen on the device offers pixel density of 217 ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor with 1GB of RAM aboard. 8GB of native memory can be bumped to as much as 40GB using a microSD card. The rear camera is 8MP with AF and an LED flash and video is captured at 1080p (30fps). A 1.3MP shooter takes care of self-portraits and video chat.
While the latest edition of the LG Prada is a smartphone with some good mid-to high end specs, the device still pays homage to the original Prada
with part of the UI having a black and white design reminiscent of the 2007 original.
