Prada is happy to go for the silver

LG takes the traditional path of putting out a special edition.


It will take more than the iPhone for Europeans to give up on Prada. Even with a price tag approaching $900, more than 700,000 of the touch-screen designer handsets have reportedly been sold.

It was only a matter of time, therefore, that LG followed the traditional path taken by all luxury phone makers: put out a special edition. Slated for 18 continental countries, the "Silver Edition" will come with a QWERTY keyboard and a bevy of accoutrements, including a matching pair of earphones and a leather case, acccording to MobileWhack.

It just goes to show that, once again, all that glitters isn't gold.
