LG Optimus One Google Android smartphone

LG has unveiled the Optimus One – its latest smartphone running the Google Android platform. The sleek black candy bar handset measures 114x59x13mm and benefits from Froyo – version 2.2 of the mobile platform, which includes support for Flash.

Powered by a 600 MHz processor, the LG Optimus One benefits from a 3.2in HVGA touchscreen display and support from email, web browsing, SMS and MMS, as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The 170MB internal memory can be expanded with a Micro SD card up to 32GB, and the smartphone also comes with a 3Mp camera with face-tracking and smile capture technology, Assisted-GPs, a music player and LG's App Advisor, which recommends 10 highly rated applications every two weeks.

"Running on the impressive new Android 2.2 platform with a host of intelligent features, we are confident this new handset will really make LG stand out in the smartphone space by offering consumers the latest technology at an affordable price," said Alex Windle, head of marketing at LG's mobile division.

The LG Optimus One is available T-Mobile, 3 and Orange, on contracts starting from £20 per month.
