Tegra, Froyo on board

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Say hello to LG's latest Android handset: the world's first - the company claims - smartphone with a dual-core CPU.

Hence the name, Optimus 2X, which also applies, for now, to the version of Android it'll run: 2.2 Froyo. LG pledged to release a 2.3 Gingerbread update for the device.

The handset incorporates Nvidia's 1GHz Tegra 2 ARM-based system-on-a-chip that enables it to shoot and playback 1080p HD video. It'll do so over HDMI too.

The 2X also supports the DLNA medai streaming platform

The smartphone also includes rear- and front-facing cameras, a Micro SD memory card slot, a micro USB port and a "hefty" 1500mAh battery.

The LG Optimus 2X goes on sale here in Q1 2011 ®
