LG Formally Announces LG-GW620 as First Android Handset
Hot on the heels of last week’s leak comes the official announcement of LG’s first Android handset. Called the LG-GW620, it’s a slide out QWERTY with a 3″ touch screen. The press release tells us little about the handset other than it is part of a larger strategy from LG. From the sounds of it, they plan to use Android to appeal to younger users and keep pumping out plenty of WinMo devices for the adult crowd.
The LG-GW620 will appeal to first-time smartphone customers by offering a new and different kind of user experience. Our objective is to provide a wide selection of smartphones to satisfy the diverse preferences of todayâ€™s consumers. This Android phone is just one of many smartphone models we plan to introduce worldwide in the years ahead. – Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications
From last week’s leak, other specs are purported to be a 5 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and USB. Come on LG, you can’t just announce a new handset and not give us the details!
We are still in the dark on release dates and carrier availability.Â The best we get from the press release is “…the fourth quarter of this year in select European markets.” Â Rest assured we’ll be among the first to share it with you as the puzzle pieces start coming together.
