LG has released the new LG Cookie Plus (LG GS500), a slick new 3G handset with SNS capabilities. Offering the same full touchscreen experience as the LG Cookie, its popular predecessor, the LG Cookie Plus adds new social networking features. The LG Cookie Plus will be rolled out globally to 45 countries beginning with France and Italy in early March.
Centered on social networking, the LG Cookie Plus 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 your closest contacts.
The LG Cookie Plus also features Editable Screenshot MMS, which captures web images for editing and sending, the animated UI and colourful theme options.
To build on the success of the original Cookie, 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.
