LG KX500 – LG Cookie for CDMA networks
Initially announced only in a GSM version, LG Cookie KP500 will soon be available for CDMA networks too – in Asia, at least. This will surely help LG’s plans to sell at least 10 million Cookies worldwide.
The new Cookie is called LG KX500 and it comes with CDMA2000 1x connectivity, as well as with all the features found in the original phone, including: a 240 x 400 pixels touchscreen display, accelerometer, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3MP camera.
Reportedly, the LG KX500 will be available in Asia-Pacific starting May, for a retail price equivalent with about $276.
With CDMA 1x on board, the new LG Cookie KX500 can work on Verizon’s and Sprint’s networks in the US. Of course, the two carriers may never release the phone, but at least we know that they might – that is, if LG wants to bring the handset to the US too.
