LG has announced a range of touch-screen mobile phones aimed at the younger generation. The company said in a statement that LG’s Cookie series, consisting of the Cookie, Cookie Style and Cookie 3G, was aimed at ‘Generation-Z’, or younger users.
All are numberpad free and feature on-screen QWERTY keyboards that can be rotated into landscape mode to make texting that bit easier.
Naturally, considering the target demographic, social networking is high on the agenda, and LG claims the user interface has been optimised for that purpose. The phones all feature a 3.5in headphone jack, an FM radio, and a miroSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Cookie (T300) is the most compact and features a 2.4in display, while the Cookie Style (T310) takes that up to 2.8in and is available in a variety of suitably ‘funky’ colours. LG also makes much of the styled shortcut button on the front.
As its name suggest, the Cookie 3G (T320) caters for faster connectivity and features push email – presumably for those budding young Apprentice types.
While some may dismiss these as cutesy toy feature phones, the LG Cookie KP500 gave a good account of itself when we reviewed it early last year and they’ve evidently gone down well enough to get a second helping.
The Cookie series will arrive in the UK in September and pricing will be revealed closer to release time.
