The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 has been confirmed for UK launch. We've already done all the ' fresh from the oven ' puns, so we'll skip straight to the details.

The GS290 packs a 2-megapixel camera, FM tuner/recorder and 3.5mm earphone jack. It boasts a touchscreen with an updated speed-dialing home screen and 18 themes. Features include a dedicated Facebook interface and LiveSquare, which creates custom-animated characters for your contacts.

The rubber-trimmed GS290 comes in 16 colours. We asked LG when it will hit shelves, but it seems they've all scarpered for the bank holiday weekend, so the best we can tell you is "shortly". We do know it will be available from Vodafone, Virgin, Tesco and Phones4U.

Let is know in the comments if you think this is a Cookie 'do' or Cookie 'doh!'
