Unboxing the LG Cookie KP500

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 9, 2008

LG Mobile sent over their newest and most affordable touchscreen phone last week -- the LG KP500. Brought it with me to Germany along with the E63 but unfortunately I forgot the charger. For now, let me share some more additional photos I took along the way. Actually, the rest of the unboxing photos were left on my PC back home. Click on the thumbnails to get a bigger view. So far, from the limited use I've had, the phone is light and sized just enough to handle with one hand. It comes with a stylus too at the bottom…

LG KP500: Full Touchscreen and Cheap?

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: October 1, 2008

LG Mobile wants to bring touch-screen phones to the mass market so it's introducing an "affordable", full touchscreen handset, the LG KP500, sometime end of October. But where's the catch? Guess what -- no WiFi or 3G capability. The 3-inch display (240x400 resolution) can display webpages in EDGE network only. The 3.15 MP camera (2048x1536 pixels) can also do videos but only at 12fps. It has a built-in accelerometer to allow shifting between vertical and horizontal orientation. The on-screen keyboard only appears during horizontal position, but it can do handwriting recognition which is complemented with a stylus. Aside from the…

Samsung Star S5233 vs. LG Cookie KP500

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: July 7, 2009

A lot of people are asking which of these two entry-level touchscreen phones is better -- the new Samsung S5233 Star or the older LG Cookie KP500 -- and I'd say they are just brothers from a different mother. Check out the comparative chart below and you'd be surprised how much specs these two phones share with each other. They're like clones -- down to the thickness. Of course, the LG Cookie got beaten in the charts by the Samsung Star with a minuscule difference in internal memory, VGA recording and battery rating. The LG Cookie is about 500 bucks…

LG KP500 Cookie Review

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: December 18, 2008

LG Mobile is the first one to introduce an affordable, full touchscreen phone in the market. Banking on the popularity of touchscreen devices and marketing it to folks with a limited budget, LG is poised to grab a segment that might just bite the cookie. Make and Construction The LG Cookie is surprisingly thin and light, maybe because it's made up of lightweight plastic all over (yet, doesn’t look cheap or ugly). It's probably one of the lightest phone ever (comparable to the old generation Nokia 8210) for its size. Fits snugly in the palm of the hand. The front…

LG Cookie Price: Php11,900

Relevance: 39%      Posted on: November 28, 2008

True to their words, LG Philippines launched today the cheapest fully touchscreen phone in the Philippines - the LG KP500 or the LG Cookie. My prediction of under Php15k was surpassed -- it's actually just Php11,900. As expected, LG's approach was to reach as many people in the market and give them an option to get a full touch screen phone at a very affordable price. Yes, they sacrificed 3G and WiFi connectivity just to be able to get the LG Cookie to that price. It's a huge gamble but if they can attract enough people with the Php12k price…

LG upgrades the Cooky to HSDPA, T-DMB TV

Relevance: 35%      Posted on: March 10, 2009

After selling over 1.3 million units of the LG KP500 since its launch in November 2008, the Korean company is finally cooking up an upgrade which they cleverly named LG Cooky. An no that's not a typo. The new low-end touchscreen phone has been upgraded and labeled LG Cooky (SU910/KU9100/LU9100). It will now have 3G/HSDPA capability as well as a TV tuner built-in {via}. However, the slated June 2009 release will first be done in South Korea so we won't be seeing them locally for a while. And with the upgrades, expect the retail price to be around Php18k. You…

LG KS360 Review

Relevance: 10%      Posted on: May 19, 2009

LG makes some of the most practical, feature-specific phones in the market. We saw that with the LG KU250 and the LG KP500 targeting a single specific feature at an affordable price. The LG KS360 is an attempt to take full qwerty messaging to the masses. Before we talk about the highlights of the phone, be reminded that the KS360 is somewhat an entry-level phone and thus do not have all the bells and whistles one would expect -- there's no WiFi, no 3G or GPS inside, just Bluetooth -- so you can stop right here and move on to…
