LG KP500 pet-named LG Cookie, priced

For those of you looking into getting your first touchscreen handset, the LG KP500 would be a good bet. It hasn’t been officially announced by LG, but word on the street is that it will be known as the LG Cookie once it’s finally released, and comes with a touchscreen among other interesting features.

There are a mere three buttons on its face, positioned below the 3-inch TFT touchscreen display, while around back there’s a 3-megapixel fixed focus camera to take care of your snaps. There’s supposedly no support for 3G networks on-board, but at least it gets EDGE on top of being quadband GSM.

Other features of the LG Cookie include:

Built-in accelerometer with auto-screen rotate for images, videos and documents
Landscape virtual QWERTY keyboard
Support for widgets
11.9mm thick
Records QVGA video at 12 FPS while playback is up to 24 FPS

You can see more of the LG KP500′s featureslg, on one of our earlier reports. As for its price, it’s rumored to be somewhere around 170 Euro, before taxes and subsidies. In that case, it should be one of the most affordable touchscreen handsets out there, and no doubt a lot of people are going to spring for it at the first chance they get. Once it gets released on its still unknown release date, that is.

    The LG KP500 was first shown at a Phone House event in the Netherlands (http://www.mobilecowboys.nl/toestellen/8133 or: http://www.mobilecowboys.com/mobilerumors/176 (in English)

    I can confirm the pricetag of around 220 Euros (including 19% VAT) and the Phone will be in stores starting late October – early November (at least in The Netherlands).

    Come on guys, you've copied the full GSMArena news but you've missed the main point.
    You've written your article as if the KP500 has never been announced, and it is just another leak, but it isn't. The GSMArena news just ads more facts that were not known at the official announcement of KP500. Plus the market release date is also known – end of October as Ron Smeets said before me.

    Take a look and check your facts (Googling around does the job)
