Is The Prada Phone Worth It?

In a recent article Forbes writer Daniel Lyons points out that there is no logical reason to spend $780 on the Prada phone by LG. A point I wholeheartedly agree with, except for the phone is so darn pretty. The thing is, and Lyons does acknowledge this, there is common sense and then there's fashion sense.

The Prada phone is approximately $200 more than the upcoming iPhone, but does tout the designer label and "oh, it's Prada" factor. Of course, most people expect the iPhone to deliver in terms of its touchscreen technology and the iPod bonus. For those of you who are still aching for the phone despite its price, there may be a few road blocks. Prada was taking pre-orders in its boutiques in New York and Los Angeles this spring, but the phones are now all sold out in the U.S. On top of that, you will need a SIM card from a European or Asian cellular carrier for the phone to work in the U.S., as no local networks recognize the phone.

The only expericence I've ever had with an LG phone was not nice. It was the biggest POS phone I ever owned. The only kind I've ever managed to keep for more than a year is Motorola.

way too expensive for me but than I am rarely if never swayed by designer names I guess I just don't have the gene in me that cares about that stuff. I go for the look and the price combined not what i think others will think if they know who made it.
