Orange gets new pink and silver LG Cookie variants
LG has launched the Cookie in pink and silver, with Orange snapping up the exclusive rights to sell the new colour variants.
The Cookie, a mid-range touchscreen handset, was previously only available in black. The new variants feature slimmer call buttons and are available for £99.99 on pay as you go, and £15 per month on a 24-month price plan from Orange.
The Cookie was one of the top performing mid-range handsets of 2009, selling around 20,000 units a week at Carphone in the run up to Christmas.
Jeremy Newing, head of marketing at LG Mobile UK, said: ‘LG understands the importance of choice to consumers when it comes to purchasing a handset. We are delighted to add the ‘Pink’ and ‘Silver’ Cookie to the range as it reaffirms the stylish and fun personality that has made the LG Cookie so sought after.’
The full name for the new colour variants is LG Cookie KP501, as opposed to the original version, which went by the code name KP500.
