LG unveils first Android handset

Simple smartphone?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Mobile phone firms won’t be taken seriously these days if they don’t have an Android offering - or at least that’s the way it feels. Last week, Motorola launched one. Today, it's LG's turn.

LG's GW620: the firm's first Android smartphone

LG has called its offering the GW620, but has decided to keep the handset’s full technical specifications close to its chest for now.

From what little information the firm has let slip, though, we know that the GW620 has a 3in touchscreen display, a front-facing video camera - and therefore 3G connectivity - and a slide-out Qwerty keyboard. It looks like it has a 3.5mm headphone socket and a micro USB port.

As far as the GW620’s other features go, LG only gave fleeting references to “social networking functions”.

Skott Ahn, CEO of LG's Mobile Communications Company, said he hopes the phone will appeal to “first-time smartphone customers”.
