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
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.
