LG KP500 Cookie on T-Mobile UK – Cheapest LG Touchscreen Phone

LG Electronics have today launched their latest touchscreen device but this new mobile phone is different in one major way to the ever increasing number of touchscreen releases, the LG KP500 also known as the the LG Cookie is by far the most affordable of its kind on the market.

The manufacturer seem to be targetting the budget market place with phones that offer features only usually found in top end models, take for example their LG KS360 phone – the cheapest mobile with a built-in full QWERTY keyboard, looks like they’ve hit on a couple of winning handsets with the onset of a recession!

Initially released in black, the LG KP500 Cookie is also set to be launched in silver, red and gold colour variants.

The LG KP500 Cookie offers a 3.0 inch wide full touch screen which is more screen “real estate” to better enjoy watching videos, playing games, and looking at photos. Bigger is better and that also makes it easier to use by physical touch since larger icons are easier to navigate than smaller ones.

The user interface is so intuitive that users will want to explore and master all of the functions and features of the LG Cookie. The UI allows users to access menus easily and shift around other menus simply and quickly with just one touch.

The easy-to-use smart handwriting recognition function of the LG-KP500 allows users to send text messages without using the touch keyboard. It is possible to write in complicated languages such as Chinese. In the photo mode, users can easily edit their photos with the stylus pen.

Using advanced motion sensor technology, the LG KP500 adds more fun interactivity to games so users can enjoy mobile entertainment in a more dynamic and exciting way.
The games loaded on the LG-KP500 use a motion sensor that requires the user’s eye-hand coordination to balance, flip, shift, and twist the handset to play the games.

The QWERTY onscreen keyboard slides into view when the LG-KP500 is held horizontally, and the auto rotating display always shifts images or documents for proper viewing no matter which way the handset is turned.
