LG promises Ice Cream Sandwich for swanky new Prada 3

LG's new Prada 3 has a slim design, a dual-core processor, and a path to Android 4.0. It's available now for South Korean carrier SK Telecom.

LG Prada 3: too sexy for your purse LG

After briefly mentioning it yesterday in its Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade plans, LG spilled more details today on its upcoming LG Prada 3 Android smartphone.

Like the Prada and Prada 2 before it, the Prada 3's calling card is its sleek (0.3-inch), "look at me!" profile. Though relatively minimalist by Prada standards, the handset's glossy black skin, "Saffiano" pattern on the battery cover, and prominent logo are enough make it eye-catching. Accessories are optional, but encouraged.

Features include a WVGA 4.3-inch display with a Prada-designed user interface, a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 1540aMh battery, an 8-megapixel camera, and 8MB of internal memory. Though currently running Android, the Prada 3 will get Ice Cream Sandwich in the second quarter of next year.

The Prada 3 is debuting in South Korea first on SK Telecom and then on KT on January 5. Full price is a hefty 899,000 won ($775), but both carriers will knock the price down if you sign a contract.
