The girls at ShinyShiny got some one-on-one time with the much-hyped LG Prada phone and after spending 24 hours with a preproduction model had some mixed, but mostly good things to say. So the good news first. The touch-screen has no lag whatsoever. Even better, fat-fingered technofiles don't have to worry about accidentally hitting the wrong "button" since the phone's icons are spaced far apart. The bad news is that the touch-screen requires some getting used to. For texting, it requires concentrating, otherwise you'll end up with a ton of misspellings. There were also times when you had to "press" buttons more than once to get them to function. Final verdict:

"This is a phone. And it's really nothing more than a phone. It's for those that are all about appearances. And there's nothing wrong with that."

If it was from Apple it would be, "revolutionary", "raising the bar on cell phone design", and "redefining the high-end cell phone market". Too bad its from a second tier brand like Prada. I mean, who buys Prada anyway? Oh yeah, all those that can! Cool looking phone though...
