LG Optimus One Android smartphone unveiled, out now

Bringing Android to the masses

LG has lifted the lid on its latest Android number, the Optimus One, which has launched at a wallet-friendly price point despite being a fully featured handest.

The device sports Android 2.2, a 3.2-inch screen and 3-megapixel camera. The processor at its beating heart is a 600MHz number, however, placing the Optimus squarely in the budget phone bracket - akin to the HTC Wildfire.


Speaking to TechRadar, LG’s mobile marketing chief Alex Winde says of the Optimus One that it will “really make LG stand out in the smartphone space by offering consumers the latest technology at an affordable price.” He went on to say that LG is on a mission to bring “affordable technology to the masses,” as with the Cookie series in the past.

The bonus of Android - with its rich developer community, app market and support from Google – clearly puts this a big step above the relatively meek Cookie series, which is in turn a step in the right direction for cash-strapped phone lovers. You can grab the Optimus one for free on a bargainous £20 per month contract at Carphone Warehouse
