Update-1: LG GS290 Cookie Fresh Leaked at CeBIT

CeBIT, HANNOVER, Germany – A new, lower-end version of LG’s most successful touchscreen-handset was spotted at the currently on-going CeBIT event in Germany.

Although the South Korean manufacturer recently released an upgrade to the Cookie, the LG Cookie Plus, the newer version of the device may be actually cheaper – even though the LG Cookie is also regarded as a low-end mobile phone.

The new LG Cookie Plus – not the Fresh –  brings an improved user interface with focus towards social networking. During its launch, LG did state it would be adding new handsets to the Cookie line in the future, therefore the Cookie Fresh should be announced officially, soon at CeBIT.

The Cookie Fresh does not seem to bring anything new to the market – if features a 2 megapixel camera, a 3″ touchscreen display, FM radio, and multimedia playback support.

The first LG Cookie proved to be a winning move for the electronics giant, selling more than 10 million units. Manufacturers are now imitating LG’s steps, and betting in the entry-level touchscreen phone segment as well.
