LG has said that more than five million Cookie phones have been sold worldwide since its launch nine months ago.
The full touchscreen phone was made available in over 60 countries in November 2008 and achieved one million sales in its first fourteen weeks after launch. LG said that according to market research firm GfK, the Cookie had stayed firmly in the top ten on the sales charts in major European countries for most of the year.
LG Mobile president and CEO Dr. Skott Ahn said: “Achieving five million units in sales in only nine months is proof that we’re on track with our goal to make Cookie a phone that’s loved by everyone.
“Our strategy to provide a full touchscreen phone at an affordable price has succeeded beyond our originals expectations. If the current trend continues, we expect to see Cookie hit sales of 10 million by the end of this year.”
