Maybe this is their way of sticking it to Apple, but LG today officially announced its new Prada phone, also know as the KE850. Aside from the fact that it's black and has a touchscreen, the similarities with the iPhone are minimal...not really. The LG has a 3-inch 400 x 240 screen to the iPhone's 3.5-inch 480 x 320 screen. Unlike the iPhone, LG's phone lacks built-in storage, instead you'll have to rely on microSD cards. There's also no word of its wifi capabilities, if it has any. Still, it looks nicer than many of the other fashion phones we've seen before and the interface, though perhaps slow, ain't bad either. Where it does have the advantage is availability. It's due out next month in Europe, whereas the iPhone still has a ways to go.
