LG Cookie available in CDMA and GSM flavors overseas

We won't see this phone come stateside, but the LG Cookie has recently released a CDMA version specifically for the Asia Pacific regions. We also give a brief description of the LG KP500 Cookie, which you can use in the U.S. if you can find one unlocked.

We won't see any variety of this phone stateside, but the LG Cookie has recently released a CDMA version specifically for the Asia-Pacific region.

Dubbed the KX500, it's quite similar to the KP500 Cookie, which is its GSM cousin. Both versions have a 3-inch touch-screen display, a 3-megapixel camera, motion sensor, handwriting recognition, a microSD card slot, and a 3D user interface that looks a lot like HTC's TouchFLO. It has three physical keys underneath the display plus an optional stylus.

While the LG KX500 Cookie is brand new and Asia-only, the LG KP500 Cookie has been around for a while now in Europe and Asia. The KP500 also has quad-band GSM support, so if you can somehow get it unlocked, you will be able to use it in the U.S. An unlocked KP500 Cookie model will cost you roughly $200.
