The LG Prada Phone 3.0, previously available only in South Korea, will start shipping with T-Mobile UK next month.The 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 phone ships with a custom skin of Android 2.3, although LG has promised an update to 4.0 in Q2. In our hands-on, we were pleasantly surprised by the phone's functionality, although there wasn't anything significantly new beyond the monochrome Prada UI. The Prada Phone runs a 1Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and comes with 8GB of internal storage.

There's currently no word on pricing from T-Mobile, but the phone sells unsubsidized in Korea for around $780 US and has been spotted at at least one UK online store for £429.99 (about $665 US). The February release date is slightly later than we previously reported, and we haven't seen any sign yet that it's coming to other European markets. But if you have both the means and the desire to get a high-end fashion phone, we don't imagine anything as trivial as national borders is going to stop you.
