LG Mobile announced today that its attractively-priced full touchscreen handset, LG Cookie (LG-KP500), recorded over two million unit sales worldwide in the five short months since its debut last October despite the global economic downturn. More info:
LG Cookie was designed to allow more people to experience a taste of touch technology at an attractive price, but with advanced features usually found exclusively in premium full touchscreen handsets. More than 1.2 million gourmets have had a taste of LG Cookie in Europe, and 600,000 Cookies have been sold in Asia and the emerging markets, including Latin America. In Korea, LG Cookie is currently the most popular handset with 100,000 units in accumulated sales as of March this year and record one-day sales of 4,500 units.
However, the price is not the only appeal of this Cookie. Its easily accessible multimedia features, available through widgets as well as shortcut icons, allow consumers to enjoy a fun mobile experience -- such as motion sensor games -- with a single touch of its 3.0-inch screen. And the LG Cookie not only tastes great, but it looks great, too. With its slim 11.9 mm body, the phone was originally released in four delicious colors including Black, Vandyke Brown, Anodizing Silver, and Elegant Gold. The line-up has now been expanded to ten different colors. LG plans to bake more Cookies with even more color options to match a variety of personal tastes.
The company plans to expand Cookie?s availability from 40 to 60 countries as part of its push to hit 10 million in sales worldwide.
