The release of those to are just to close to accuse either from copying the other. Both look really nice but I'd keep my hopes on the LG one. Its also LG's first colaboration with the Prada brand.

According to this page the hardware specs are just a tad lower on screen and so on but hopefully the LG phone will not be locked to a certin operator as it will be in the USA. It will be out within a month in certin european contries so I guess it will get a headstart to the iPhone everywhere within three months.

In the UK, the iPhone wont be locked to a certain operator, either. It'll also be 3G in Europe.

If they lock the damn thing to the swedish operator 3 then hell will freeze over.

That'd be kinda cool - you could go ice skating with Satan ;D

But yeah, it wont be locked to the "3" network, but the phone will be on the 3G wireless network, which means faster internets.

The problem is, by that time, something much, much cooler will have been announced.

Ah, but at least you'd have saved money with which to buy the cool thing.

I don't know if I would bye one but I would buy one down the road when it is no longer Rogers exclusive in Canada since they have no coverage here and after the problems are worked out in a few revisions.

I would have if it weren't for two reasons.
A: I recently bought an Nokia N73, shows videos quite well to.
B: Apple will lock it to a certin operator in every country it seems.

As I stated further back in this thread I keep my hopes to the prada phone.

I'm buying that. it looks so much nicer (though probably pricier).
