LG has said it plans to launch three Android-based smartphones during 2009.

The firm refused to disclose specific launch dates or provide technical details about any of the devices during as announcement at the ongoing CommunicAsia event in Singapore.

But LG did confirm that its first Android smartphone will appear during the late Q3/early Q4.

Unike other handset manufacturers, LG has kept fairly quiet about its plans to offer phones based on the headline-grabbing Google OS.

But the Korean firm’s latest announcement is hardly surprising. It’s already a member of the Open Handset Alliance - a group of companies, also including Google, which combine efforts to develop open standards for mobile devices. ®
