Utility and mass adoption are just as important cause if people don’t buy them, it’s hard to say they’re relevant. LG Electronics and Prada reveal plans of exclusive partnership to make an iconic cell phone. This first Prada offspring by LG will combine high-end technology with avant-garde design offering the best in both style and performance. The focal point of the phone is that it will have an advanced touch interface which eliminates the conventional keypad.
