LG and Prada show off iPhone look-alike

The LG/Prada KE850 designer handset was announced last year, but looks awfully familiar. The KE850 looks very similar to the Apple iPhone, right down to the form factor, the touch screen, and the glossy user interface. The KE850 uses a tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE radio to connect to wireless providers, and has a slew of interesting features. It comes with an 800mAh battery, a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash, an SD memory card for storage, full multimedia playback features, Bluetooth 2.0, and USB 2.0. While the KE850 is slightly smaller than the iPhone, 9.9 x 5.4 x 1.2cm to the Apple gadget's 11.5 x 6.1 x 1.2cm, it lacks some serious features that are iPhone exclusives. The LG device lacks Wi-fi, and costs a lot more than the iPhone ($777, or 600 Euros compared to $600, or 463 Euros for the best Apple iPhone).
