LG Cookie Plus here

KATHMANDU: LG Electronics (LG), a global leader and technology innovator in mobile communications, is set to make another major splash in the touchphone market with the release of its LG Cookie Plus (LG GS500) -- a slick new 3G handset. Offering the same full touchscreen experience as the LG Cookie, its popular predecessor, the LG Cookie Plus is raising the bar with a host of exciting new features.

"The LG Cookie Plus is both a celebration of the original Cookie phone, which brought touchscreen technology to all, and an exciting first step in our new line of phones that will continue the Cookie legacy by adding creativity and affordability to the touch experience," said Dr Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

Enjoyable and affordable, LG Cookie Plus follows its successful predecessor in offering a full touchscreen, but enhances the Cookie experience with a fun graphical interface and convenient social networking connectivity.

Centred on social networking, LG Cookie Plus boasts a flurry of friendly networking features. Easy SNS usability brings Facebook to your mobile screen for a simple social networking experience, while Twitter, Flickr and other top sites are also supported. LG's unique peer management application, LiveSquare™, adds a visually dynamic and interactive dimension to keeping up with close contacts.

LG plans to offer a full batch of new Cookie handsets in 2010. The new line of affordable touchscreen phones will be unveiled over the next few months.
