LG dual-core smartphone to hit UK in March
Retailers name the date
LG's Optimus 2x Android smartphone - a handset equipped with Nvidia's 1GHz dual-core Tegra processor - will be out in the UK in March.
So says online retailer Expansys.com, which is quoting 21 March as the day the "superphone" will become available.
It wants £500 for the unlocked smartphone that comes with a 4in display, 8Mp camera and its own Ennio Morricone theme tune.
Confirmation of sorts comes from Carphone Warehouse. Its website simply states "March 2011" as the date the Optimus 2x will arrive in its stores, though cautiously it adds small print to the effect that this date isn't completely certain. ®
Waiting for a Motorola?
It better make some damn good coffee then.
Even with dual-core, the Android lag/sluggishness continues
Saw a demo of the LG Optimus X2 - Engadget (desktop/classic version). Scrolling is still sluggish and laggy as ever. I'm going to wait for the Motorola Atrix 4G.
For the missus?
Optimus, Prime for release. Transform her life.
digressing i know, but..
... whenever I see the name 'LG', I think of their name change from 'Lucky Goldstar', to 'Life's Good'. 'Lucky Goldstar' sounds brilliant to me - although I realise tainted by association with budget Goldstar goods. But also, life is not always good. 'Life's variable' fits better.
They were quoting February the other day so I wouldn't really trust this.
