Not too much of a shock here, but we surmise that the LG-E906 aka the Jil Sander phone is probably not selling too well. First made available at the end of November for £299.99 ($460) the phone dropped to £199.99 sometime before Christmas. Now the phone has taken an even further price cut, 50% from the original, to a pretty sweet £149.99 ($231) which ain't half bad for a phone with 16GB internal storage.
To recap, the Jil Sander phone is a collaboration between the famous fashion house and LG. In fact, it's the only "new" phone from LG with Mango and it's not even that original as it is basically an Optimus 7 with some new styling. In that sense, its stats are a little under whelming with a 1Ghz CPU, 3.8" screen and a 5MP camera.
Having said that it is rather stylish and for that low price with no carrier ties, something worth considering.

That hand!!! And I thought I had see through skin lol.
it needs lotion
It should have been a Nokia lumia chassis! Buyers of Jil Sanders know quality, and have a good eye for style. They can't be fooled. Although they may think the Software is appealing, they won't choose function over fashion. The 900 would make a good designer handset. And trust me.. Price doesn't matter to this demographic. If it's not high enough, then it would be considered "cheep"..
