LG's Prada just wants to be touched

OK, so O2's Xda and Sony Ericsson's Symbian models are touchscreen but let's face it, they're just glorified PDAs. This, on the other hand, is 85g of pure Prada perfection. At least, at this price, it should be.Comparisons with the iPhone will abound but this catwalk model was announced well before Mr Jobs took to the stage at MacWorld.It's smaller and thinner than the iPhone, just a slip-in-a-suit-pocket 12mm deep. Prada's been hard at work on the inside too, ensuring the entirely black and silver custom menus are worthy for finely manicured digits to prod.On the exterior, large memory slots don’t ruin the sleek lines; just a single microSD card crevice takes care of music, photos and video. The movie player itself makes full use of the sumptuous 400x240 pixel widescreen, and it'll record full screen video, too, at a mighty 30fps.The iPhone-matching 2MP camera will stretch to a little light papping, but there's no Wi-Fi, or 3G for that matter, so don't expect to be using this as an internet tablet. Still, we're sure those fashionistas will find another use for such a large flat surface...
