Everyone deserves a joyful touch screen experience. So touch wisely!
Manila, Philippines– After it became the fast selling, full touch screen phone, LG Cookie once again is being served with a variety of flavours to continue the revolution it pioneered.
“A big hit for customers looking for touch screen phone that is easy on the pocket, LG’s popular Cookie handset returns to continue the touch screen revolution and comes with updated and upgraded smart features to offer joyful touch screen experience,” said Raymond Hernandez, corporate marketing head of LG Electronics Philippines.
“Sociable, enjoyable, and affordable, the LG Cookie Series continues the core value of the original Cookie phone which was to lower the barrier to make it possible for every mobile user to experience touch screen technology.”
Cookie Wi-Fi, Cookie Ultima, and Cookie Pop comprised the new set of Cookie phones.
The much-awaited from among the Cookie Series, Cookie Wi-Fi lets you experience fast Wi-Fi connectivity on a slim full 3” touch-enabled screen. It puts the multimedia features such as Dolby Mobile that matters most right at your fingertips. Cookie Wi-Fi is your next big thing! It’s Cookie, full-touch with Wi-Fi and definitely within your means!
The Cookie Ultima allows you to carry your friends around with you anytime, anywhere. Stay in touch with 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. And with a 3.0” touch screen and 5 megapixel camera, you can see and share everything more clearly.
The new Cookie POP isn’t just the smallest and compact 3” full touch screen phone. It delivers a huge hit with an easy-to-use interface, 3MP camera, web browser and access to your favorite social networks. Everyday fun is all beneath this sleek 3" screen.
The LG Cookie Series originates from the idea of a basketful of new cookies with a variety of flavours that meet the tastes of different consumers. The LG Cookie Series provides a wide selection of handsets while continuing the essence and legacy of the LG Cookie itself.
The first Cookie, the LG KP500, made its worldwide debut in October 2008, recording sales of over 13 million units. It is LG’s fifth phone to achieve this impressive milestone following the LG Chocolate, LG Shine, LG KP100 and LG KG270. The Cookie reached the mark in a mere 13 months, making it the fastest-selling full touch phone in LG’s history and helping position LG as the leader in full touch screen experience.
Based on the advanced touch technology of premium handsets like the LG Prada, LG was able to stay ahead of the competition and open the door for millions to experience full touch screen technology. The LG Cookie’s release quickly sparked a scramble from competitors to offer touch screen phones for the mass market, which only began appearing six months after the LG Cookie.
“LG Cookie KP500 and other premium touch phones are currently continuing LG’s leadership and the new LG Cookie Series phones will further its standing,” Hernandez said.
The LG Cookie Series is now available in major consumer and phone specialty shops from PhP7, 990 to 10,990. For further information, please visit http://ph.lgmobile.com.
