LG To Stick With Cookie Brand For Now

Korean manufacturer LG has swapped the name of its entry level range of smartphones, Cookie, for somethine equally cute, Wink, in Korea but the company will stick to the name Cookie in the UK.

The new Cookie smartphone models will consist of three versions, the LG Wink, the LG Wink Style ande the LG Wink 3G all of which are touchscreen models that apparently aim at the Generation Z who, according to LG, aim those interested in music, texting and social media.

As expected, the phones all come with a resistive screen; the Wink has a 2.4-inch model with a QVGA resolution while the Style has a 2.8-inch one with some minor aesthetic differences and the Wink 3G adds faster HSDPA & Wi-Finetworking capabilities.

Other than that, we guess that the phone will have a 3.2-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, a 3.5-mm headphone jack and FM Radio.

The three phones will be released in the UK in September and the rest of Europe in August and although the prices have yet to be announced, we suspect that they will all sell for less than £100 on PAYG.
