LG and Prada announce the Prada phone by LG 3.0, coming next year
Together, LG and Prada brought the world its first touchscreen handset in 2006. The Prada phone by LG 1.0 sold more than 1 million units and is currently on display at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai. That was followed with the Prada phone by LG 2.0 which worked with a watch that displayed caller ID, text messages, call history and two-way alarm notification.

While the press release didn't mention anything about the OS used by the Prada phone by LG 3.0, we recently showed you pictures that a source sent to us of the LG Prada K2, a smartphone that has Android installed, and LG's design sketch on the right seems to be of the same device. This very well could be the Prada phone by LG 3.0. The first two Prada models were featurephones. The next LG Prada phone is expected to launch in early 2012 and there was no mention of what the pricing will be for the fashionable device.

The agreement signed by LG and Prada makes the Korean manufacturer the exclusive mobile phone partner of the Prada fashion house. The partnership focuses on the phone's design, UI, software, design of the packaging, and other important elements of the phone.

Considering the historical significance of the first two Prada models, it will be interesting to keep an eye on what LG and Prada have in mind the third time around.

they should've waited for the chance to make an ICS Prada now THAT would've made for a more worthy successor.

It would be great if it had 720p display, 4.3-4.5 inches at the most, quad core, good battery life, lte, flat front and back like iphone, 10mp camera on back 2mp on front, 1080p back and 720p front and ICS. Perfect phone
