LG Arena to retail for €399 in Europe
We know almost all there is to know about LG KM900 Arena, except for a tiny detail: its price.
Well, according to PortableGear.nl, the mighty 5MP touchscreen phone will retail in the Netherlands for €599 €399 (including VAT). If we’re talking in US Dollars, that’s roughly about $542.
So we assume the handset will have a similar retail price all over Europe.
However, LG probably wants to sell the Arena via various mobile carriers, so end users should be able to buy it for much less if they sign contract agreements with said carriers.
As you already know, the KM900 Arena is not a smartphone (it uses LG’s new, proprietary S-Class Touch UI), so one may wonder if it’s worth paying that much for buying it free of contract. I guess it all comes down to how much money you have in your pocket and how much the Arena answers your mobile needs.
The handset should become available in several European markets starting this month (or starting April, in the Netherlands).
Update: We initially wrote that LG Arena would cost €599 free of contract, but that’s obviously not true, as the phone costs only €399. We’re sorry for the mistake.
