LG is not to be left out of the couture-designer tie-in, and has announced a partnership with Prada in the development of a new mobile phone model.

The companies are taking a slightly different approach to, for example, Motorola and Dolce and Gabbana, who merely released a different-coloured and rebranded model of the Motorazr.

Prada and LG have apparently “jointly explored and developed all aspects of this new phone”, and not just the exterior at that.

The collaboration has extended to software, user interface, and music, as well as the styling of the mobile and the design of the packaging.

Today's announcement is just a teaser, and all they'll reveal, spec-wise, is that the mobile has a touch interface, presumably along the same lines as the Chocolate.

The launch is planned for early 2007 in Europe, with a roll out into Asia.

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
