LG Optimus 2X hitting UK in January

Korean giant lets slip European release date

Ringtone announcement contains juicy morsel on Euro availability.

Sure, getting movie score legend Ennio Morricone to make ringtones for the new Optimus 2X dual core is a smart move by LG. But when the announcement of the collaboration also contains deets on when us Brits can get one, let’s just say we’re happy with our bog-standard classic ringing number.

LG’s official announcement of the ringtone tie-up said that Morricone’s music would be on the Optimus 2X, with the phone, “…set to debut next month in Europe”.

That’s great news, especially as it had been assumed the phone would be a Korea-only affair for some time. The 4-inch Android phone promises to be an absolute powerhouse thanks to its dual-core skills.
