LG Cookie gets upgraded with S-Class interface, 3G, mispelled name


Just around 6 months after the launch of the LG Cookie (KP500) , LG has announced details of a followup. Because the name “Cookie II” just made too much sense, LG has instead opted to name this second handset “Cooky”, which is not a word.

We had joked that LG had chosen the name “Cookie” because there were no good words left in the phone-naming pool. Now they’re just taking the old names and spelling them wrong.

Anyway – the LG Cooky will be a good bit pricier (around $380, compared to $230), but pack a 3 megapixel camera, TV tuner, the S-Class interface first seen on the Arena, and 7.2mbps HSDPA into a 10.9mm shell (one whole millimeter thinner!). The strength of the original Cookie was its price – this one, we’re not too sure. Oh, and check out the weird external stylus in the shot below.
