O2 dips hand in the cookie jar

image003

LG has released details of their Cookie handset coming to the O2 network, exclusively in the exclusive favourite of O2’s whitest of whites stock coloured brand.

We’re now led to believe by LG this will be the UK’s most affordable phone, in the category of touch screen handsets. Obtaining a mobile by means of theft would surely then make a mobile ‘the’ most affordable phone in the UK, although this might open up an entirely new category all by itself. Not that we’re condoning theft in anyway shape or form, from WIFI to even music – just in case any Daily Mail readers were thinking of starting up a grass roots campaign against us.

This latest colour to appear matches other so-called exclusive colour ranges of the Cookie, with the likes of pink and silver versions of LG’s mobile solely appearing on the Orange network last month. Absent from their range strangely enough is the colour Orange, which is as much associated with that network as their staple colour as white is with O2. Virgin Mobile also carries the LG handset in black, which is more suited to the phone than all the others in our most humble opinion.

Lucky Goldstar’s Cookie, also known by the much less exciting name of the KP500 or KP501 is a 3-inch fully touch screen based mobile with EDGE capabilities, just to refresh your memory.

LG does firmly believe touch screen mobiles will be the key choice of handsets this year, which could indicate there will be more on the way from them *cough*

From the end of March, the White version of the Cookie will be on O2 for the princely sum of £99.99 on pay as you go.

Considering how worried Blue Peter were about calling a cat “Cookie”, I'm surprised that the product angle O2 & LG have taken here is that this is the cheapest touchable white cookie on the market…
