LG preps "affordable" KP500 touchscreen phone

LG's already busy making us take notice of their new 8MP KC910 Renoir. And now they're readying yet another touchscreen phone for those whose wallets

The KP500 packs the same touchscreen as its Viewty and Prada siblings, but LG says it will be their most affordable yet when it launches later in October.

Features already outed include an accelerometer, full touch QWERTY board and handwriting recognition. Other than that LG's saying nothing. But the suggestion is this will rock a 5MP snapper, probably with a bit of 3G under the hood for good measure.

Looks like Nokia's plans to use the Tube to bring touch phones to the masses have just been dealt a nasty blow. While you wait for more news, check out the KC910 in our unboxed blog.
