LG readying Prada phone with 3G, Windows Mobile 6?

LG Prada WM6 Rumor

LG will refresh its Prada phone before the end of the year, according to new rumors. Although just introduced in February, the touchscreen phone will reportedly receive an upgrade to 3G-level speeds over UMTS and potentially HSDPA; Wi-Fi is also a likely addition but may be stripped out for carriers that insist on subscribers using cellular Internet access, the source claims. The handset would also ship with Windows Mobile 6 Professional running underneath Prada's custom interface and therefore include a copy of Office Mobile for editing and viewing documents on the phone itself.

Its design should be very similar to the minimalist design in shops today and will have nothing but the basic call and disconnect buttons to accompany the 3-inch screen. LG is purportedly aiming the phone at a Europe-wide September release but may offer the device in other areas as well, similar to the unlocked US version which can be bought independently of service.
