Anything Prada phone can do, its high-tech sibling Viewty (aka LG's KU990) can do too. Just like its fashionable brother, the touchscreened, five-megapixel camphone has had a complete respray and emerged in silver.

Not just any silver, you understand. According to LG this is 'dark' silver, chosen with careful consideration to market research and much reading of the runes by its colour-way trend forecasters. This is, in essence, the silver for 2008. So now you know.

The new colour isn't the only tweak. LG has listened to feedback and come up with a re-jigged jog wheel (try saying that after a few) which now makes light work of scrolling through the menus.

Otherwise it's the same beast as released last year – which, with over half a million sold in Europe since November, is no bad thing. If it ain't broke...
