LG and Prada announce their new lovechild, the Prada 3.0

LG and Prada announce their new lovechild, the Prada 3.0Probably the worst kept secret in the last few months has been finally broken - LG and Prada have teamed up and announced that they will be bringing out another blingy handset to those of us with more money than sense.

It was unveiled at an event in London last night and will be called the Prada 3.0. At 8.5mm, it's a supermodel-like skinny item running Android and powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor. The screen will be 4.3-inches at WVGA with a NOVA display running at 800 nit brightness. So our predictions were pretty much spot on.

Camera-wise, it has a fairly pedestrian 8MP offering on the back with 1.3MP on the front and the usual suspects like Wifi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM Radio and HD video recording.

To make things look a little more exclusive, the rear has a leather-style cover which Prada calls Saffiano. Perhaps to make it a little more value for money (the price hasn't been announced but it won't be budget - put it that way!), the Prada 3.0 comes with an MHL adapter which doubles as a kick stand.

At launch, it'll be running Gingerbread but LG promises an Ice Cream Sandwich update will follow in due course. And those lovely folks at GSM Arena have even provided us with a taster of how the UI will work too.

Stand by for launches in South Korea and Western Europe first - sometime in early 2012.
