LG KP500 a hot Cookie
The very affordable LG KP500 aka Cookie features quite a bit for an entry-level dude. It packs in a3″ touchscreen display, 3MP camera, accelerometer, BT 2.1 and an FM radio and supports Quad-band GSM, GRPS/EDGE. It will also sport LG’s touchscreen Flash-based UI however the video recording and playback capabilities may leave some disappointed. The Cookie will record video at 12 fps and only at QVGA resolution. Also it chucks DivX or XviD support for MPEG4 video at 240×400 and 24 fps. However, if you keep these minor slumps aside, the KP500 offers a good deal because it is rumored to sell €170 ($228) before subsidies, so expect it to go for around the $100 range.
