LG Prada Silver KE850 ads on-screen QWERTY keyboard

With LG Viewty flying off the shelves across Europe, one would think that LG will retire it’s predecessor KE850 Prada for good.

Not so fast. Not everyone cares about 5 mpx cameras in their phones. Others prefer better looks, and a big luxury fashion brand name on their handset.

With 700 000 units shipped, LG Prada KE850 touchscreen phone is selling pretty well across the world too. So LG decided to follow the tried and tested route of Chocolate and Shine brands. Just ad some new colors to the old handset and get renewed interest in it.

And here comes LG Prada KE850 Silver:


LG Prada Silver is the same old LG KE850 Prada tri-band GSM/GPRS/Edge handset with 2 megapixel camera and a big 3″ touchscreen.

But it also fixes one serious drawback of the old Prada phone – lack of QWERTY keyboard.

The updated firmware for LG Prada Silver KE850 not only has the new color scheme, it also features full on-screen QWERTY keyboard for typing of SMS and e-mail messages.

Silver LG Prada KE850 touchscreen phone will launch simultaneously in 18 European countries in the near future.

    i just ordered the silver KE850 from Ebay. The seller couldn't guarantee the qwerty keyboard. But I keep reading that they have it. Do all the silver KE850's have qwerty keypad?
