Phones 4U beats Carphone Warehouse for new Prada phone

Phones 4U beats Carphone Warehouse for new Prada phone
Phones 4u has beaten Carphone to stock the new LG Prada KF900 before Christmas.

Carphone will also sell the sought-after phone but not until the New Year. Orange will be the first operator to range the device, which is expected to be available for free on tariffs from around £35 per month. Other operators will range it, but Orange is likely to have a head start of around two weeks.

The KF900 will be on sale in Carphone and Orange stores from the end of November and has a 5 megapixel camera, 7.2mbps HSDPA, wi-fi and slow motion video recording. Unlike its predecessor, the device has a QWERTY keyboard.

Another difference is that the KF900 will be available in bundles with an associated device called ‘The Prada Link’, a wriststrap that allows the user to silence and reject calls and read texts without having to look at their phone.

The Prada Link also warns users with a vibration if they go out of the range of the Bluetooth, which LG says will help ensure users don’t lose the phone.

LG marketing manager Jeremy Newing told Mobile: ‘The LG Prada is targeting techno-chic prosumers who want gadgets with functionality.

‘It will have a similar positioning in the market as our first Prada phone, but we have taken into account customer feedback, which has led to a QWERTY keyboard being included. The people who want to use it are primarily business people.’
