Designer Android handset now sub £300 inc VAT
There’s been a pretty significant price drop on the LG Prada 3.0 today, which is now down to £225 (£270) inc. VAT. Going by LG’s original schedule, the handset is also due an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich fairly imminently.
The LG Prada was well received when it first launched towards the start of 2012. Granted, it doesn’t have much in terms of features to differentiate it from its competitors (other than a vanilla Android experience as opposed to a skinned OS), but it is a solidly built handset, with a slick design. At the time of release we loaned a Prada to Pocket-Lint, who were pretty impressed with it.
With today’s drop, the Prada offers a strong feature set at a great price and, according to LG’s original schedule, should have Ice Cream Sandwich by now. The most recent news on the update was from Land of Droid, which suggested at the start of May that the update should be arriving soon, going by the UPnP Forum. As far as we know the update hasn’t arrived yet, but it shouldn’t be too long now until it does. LG hasn’t made a statement as to whether or not the device will get Jelly Bean, but then that’s no different to most Android manufacturers at the moment.
