LG Prada 2: Hands-on with LG's refitted fashionista

LG's chic new Prada phone -- aka the LG Prada 2 -- hit the catwalk yesterday to show off its luscious touchscreen and slide-out Qwerty keypad

Yesterday we sashayed along to the launch of the chic new LG Prada phone -- aka the LG Prada 2 -- to find out what the fashion-conscious phone has to offer. The original Prada phone was one of the first touchscreen handsets to hit the UK market, but it was fiddly to use, especially for texting. LG has taken this on board and tailored the Prada 2 to include a dedicated slide-out Qwerty keypad.

But there's much more -- the Prada 2 might look similar to its predecessor, but our first impression is that it's one of LG's best touchscreen phones yet. For starters, the Prada 2's screen is superb and responds to a gentle touch, similar to the iPhone or T-Mobile G1. Click 'Continue' to see more info and pics.

The LG Prada 2 will be available in the next few months for free on a monthly contract. Exact deals have yet to be announced.
