LG Launches Cookie Gig GM570 Touch Phone

We still aren't sure we've warmed to the name "Cookie" for a phone line, but considering just how well the "Chocolate" line did for LG, we guess we can't blame them for continuing the tradition of naming their handsets after treats. The latest from the company might just be a serious contender in the smartphone space, with the Cookie Gig boasting formidable specifications and a mean look that will taken seriously by more than just tweens.

It's being marketed now at the European market, but as with everything, a positive reaction could mean a global release in the future. The new Cookie gig KM570 is a music-centric phone with 4GB of built-in memory, a 3" WQVGA display, resistive touch-screen, 5MP camera and support for 7.2Mbps HSDPA mobile broadband. There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack, a MicroSD card slot, Bluetooth and a plastic shell that probably looks better than it feels.

Pricing and specific release information has yet to be made public, but this phone is perfect for the $0-on-contract set who wants something more sophisticated than a boring feature phone. C'mon AT&T, give this one a look!
