LG has announced that its Prada Phone 3.0 Android phone is now available in Korea, with other Asian countries and Europe lined up for a January release. The first carrier to receive the phone is SK Telecom, with KT picking it up on January 5th. It will be available on a two-year contract, naturally, with unsubsidized pricing at 899,800 won, which comes to about $780 US.

The Prada 3.0 features a 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 Nova plus LCD Gorilla Glass display covering an Android skin that, despite our usual reticence about such things, we found to be quite fetching in our hands-on. A 1GHz dual-core OMAP4430 powers the device, which also has an 8-megapixel camera and 8GB of storage. It's launching with Android 2.3.7, but LG has promised an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade in Q2 2012. Of course, all of those specs aren't likely to be the main reason you'd go for this fashion phone, but it's nice to know that LG has given some thought to the function within this form.
