iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Prada Phone By LG 3.0 To Sell For £430

The LG Prada 3.0 which was launched on the 15th of December in London will go on sale in the UK on the 6th of February on Clove's website.

The smartphone is produced in collaboration with the Italian luxury designer Prada, and could be considered the followup to the LG Optimus Black which was launched in January 2011 at CES.

At £430, the LG by Prada 3.0 smartphone represents good value for money. It is only 8.5mm thick which is thinner than the LG Optimus black, but thicker by nearly 20 per cent compared to the newly launched Motorola Razr.

Other features include Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread (upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich), a dual core chipset clocked at 1GHz, the TI OMAP4430 which was used in the LG Optimus 3D and in the RIM Blackberry PlayBook.

There's also 1GB dual channel RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 4.3-inch 800x480 pixel touchscreen, NOVA Plus display with 800-nit brightness (higher than the 700-nit display on the Optimus Black), Wi-Fi, an eight megapixel rear camera with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, DLNA, HDMI, GPS, a 1540mAh battery and a microSDHC card slot.
