LG launches new Cookie phones
LG has launched a new ‘Cookie Series’ of phones, targeting the devices at first time and younger users.
The series consists of three handsets in the Cookie, Cookie Style and Cookie 3G, designed for people after social networking tools for a decent price.
The devices all have virtual keyboard which can be used in portrait and landscape mode, a user interface optimised for social media use, threaded instant messaging and email, FM radio, and a Micro SD slot.
The LG Cookie is the most compact of the three with a 2.4 inch touchscreen. The LG Cookie Style is bigger with a 2.8 inch touchscreen, and more customisable with a range of colour options.
The most advanced device of the three is the LG Cookie 3G, designed for faster connectivity and data transmission. It will also carry push technology.
The phones will be available in September. Pricing has not been confirmed, but due to the nature of the phones will be at the lower end of the scale.
The devices show that LG isn’t just focused on the Android Optimus series, and like Microsoft and Nokia is going for an audience who won’t necessarily be able to splash the cash for the latest high powered smartphones.
