"The addition of a QWERTY keypad is surely an admission that the virtual one in the first handset hasn't worked. Add that to the lack of customisation or business support and you're left with a phone that is out-classed and out-performed by virtually every smartphone on the market: even by a number of LG's own handsets like the KS360 for its social networking and the Renoir for the size and camera.
Where the first Prada phone worked was that it was the "Desperate Housewives" crowd that wanted something touchy and cute. Now the rest of the market, including Apple, has caught up.
If there is ever an argument to say that fashion is all looks and no substance, on a first look, this seems to prove the case perfectly."
