LG GS290 Cookie Fresh, smart phone for the masses?

The LG Cookie KP500 is one of the most successful phones that LG has made, shipping over 12 million units and now LG looks to repeat the success of the original with the LG GS290, the Cookie Fresh. In a recent press release, LG announced some few details regarding the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 cellphone although LG did make clear that they expect to launch the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 within this month and it should hit stores near you very soon.

So far, what little we do know of the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 mobile phone clearly indicates that it is a low-end phone quite likely catering to the needs of the masses.Amongst the known technical specifications for the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 cellphone are the following: a 2 MP camera, Bluetooth, FM radio, a 3.5 mm audio jack and like the LG Cookie Plus GS500 features a 3″ WQVGA touchscreen.

As with the LG Cookie Plus GS500 we have reviewed earlier, the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 smart phone also sports a fun “cartoon”-ish UI which according to LG should be a nice change from the regular fare and also features social networking connectivity out of the box.

Like the old Cookie and unlike the Cookie Plus, the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 mobile phone does not feature 3G connectivity but on the other hand should consequently be cheaper compared to the Cookie Plus.

In this age of recession and cutbacks, perhaps LG’s tactics of releasing low end phones with fun features like touchscreens and cartoon interfaces such as the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 smart phone might very well be the recipe for success.
