LG Cookie Zip arrives in India (for CDMA markets)
LG Cookie Zip is the name of the newest phone launched by LG in India.
The handset seems to be a redesigned Cookie Plus GS500 (available in the US as LG Sentio, and in Italy a LG Velvet). It comes with CDMA / EV-DO connectivity, so customers will be able to use it on the networks of Reliance, BSNL, Tata or MTS India.
The features of Cookie Zip include: 3 inch TFT touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels, Live TV (available only via EV-DO), social networking integration (Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, MySpace), 2MP camera with QVGA video recording, MicroSD card support, and a 900 mAh battery that can provide a talk-time of up to 5 hours.
Unlocked, the LG Cookie Zip costs 8,299 INR (about $178). That’s way cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy i899 (India’s first CDMA Android phone), but you can’t really compare the two devices.
