LG GD510 Cookie Pep Lands in India

It might have sold over one million units across the globe, but it was six months after its international launch that LG thought it should bring the GD510 to India.

The phone will be known as the “Cookie Pep” in India – thanks to the brand value that the Cookie has in India. LG has described the GD510 as the most compact 3-inch full touchscreen handset and we agree with that. The phone, like its competitors, comes with scores of applications and social networking features – and is aimed at youngsters.

The phone offers comprehensive multimedia support and comes with 42MB of internal memory – expandable up to 8GB using microSD cards. There’s a decent 3-megapixel camera that is also capable of capturing videos as well. The phone has a solo back lit button on the face that works as the menu, end or cancel key, depending on the phone’s mode. The LG Cookie Pep is fashioned from brushed aluminum adding to its sleek look.

LG has roped in Bollywood stars John Abraham, Genelia D’Souza and Abhay Deol as brand ambassadors for the Cookie Pep. LG Cookie Pep is priced at Rs. 7,799 and is on sale right now across the country. At this price, this should turn out to be a good competitor to the entire Samsung Corby range – which seems to be its main rival.
