This is the Optimus One, the latest Android phone from LG. It’s a low cost handset and the first Android phone from LG to come with a capacitive touchscreen. It runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and comes loaded with a customised sat-nav system that runs on Google Maps.
As you’d expect the usual Android 2.2 accoutrements – Wi-Fi tethering, install apps to microSD, automatic app updates – are present and correct here.
The LG Optimus One is available now from T-Mobile, Orange, Three and Carphone Warehouse on contracts starting at £20 per month.
