LG Electronics has added digital TV reception to its stylish Prada handset on models being sold in South Korea. The phone, which went on sale earlier this year in Europe, immediately drew comparisons to Apple's iPhone because it too has a touchscreen display that takes up most of the front panel.

The higher spec version for LG's domestic market provides some indication that while design may help selling products, without the increasingly popular TV function consumers could give the handset a cool response. Prices depend on operator discounts.
