After Motorola, it’s LG that seems to be getting the Android blessings to weather down the aftermaths of the credit crunch, with the handset maker pushing a website for its Android-powered LG GW620 online.
LG has largely been going unnoticed among all the existing Android-based offerings thronging in the marketplace, but the company appears to be working up on things a little seriously to draw the attraction of a bulging community of Android fans.
The official website of the handset comprises promos and some fresh new images of the handset, along with a few videos exhibiting the functionality of its forthcoming smartphone.
The promos suggesting that the handset sports a 5.0 Megapixel camera, 3-inch touchscreen display, a 5-row QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5-mm headphone jack, as well as microUSB port.
Technically, the handset incorporates Google’s Android as its operating system, a ‘social networking service manager’, along with some interesting facial recognition software.
Additionally, in terms of connectivity, the handset includes quad-band GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, as well as UMTS (900/1200) connectivity.
It also comes in two distinct internal memory flavours, namely at 2GB and 4GB, with MicroSDHC card slot, and its memory is expandable up to 16GB.
The device will be launched in some of the selected European markets by the end of this year, according to LG.
