LG Prada sequel outed with 3G, US support?

LG Prada 3G Leaked

LG is gearing up for a direct sequel to its popular Prada designer phone, if an advance listing at a Taiwan shop proves authentic. The retailer claims to have a preview of the simply-titled Prada II that appears to improve several shortcomings of the early 2007 original. Still dominated by a 3-inch touchscreen, the phone will purportedly gain a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and heavily requested support for 3G Internet access over HSDPA (up to 7.2Mbps). Wi-Fi will also be added to fill in gaps in cellular data.

The posting also points to a leap from a 2-megapixel camera to 5, an FM radio, TV output, and a true HTML web browser like that found in the company's own Voyager phone sold in the US. Storage is supplied through a microSDHC card reader that can recognize at least 8GB of memory.

Photos and a concrete selling price for the new Prada aren't available with the leak. However, the store includes what appears to be a legitimate press release and says the sequel device will go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year; no regional launches are given, though the expanded call support would enable an official US release. A warning is given that specifications might change before a public debut. [via Unwired View]

    Give the people...

    what they want. Those are pretty decent specs. It's amazing how they manage to get all those goodies into one little handset. I guess the battery life is about four hours. I guess this is destined to become another iPhone killer.

    Prada II as iPhone killer

    It'll certainly scratch some itches. The real question is whether the next iPhone will have more to offer than just 3G and a lot of built-in storage.

    As it stands, the Prada is smaller, and it's definitely a better fit in a pants pocket.
