LG today announced the first Android mobile device, the LG-GW620 with 3-inch touch screen and a full QWERTY slide out keyboard. LG plans to introduce more smarphones this year on all platforms (multiple Operating Systems):
The new LG-GW620 features a 3-inch full touchscreen and slide out QWERTY keypad to meet the growing needs of consumers who rely on their mobile phones for more than just making calls.
?The LG-GW620 will appeal to first-time smartphone customers by offering a new and different kind of user experience,? said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. ?Our objective is to provide a wide selection of smartphones to satisfy the diverse preferences of today?s consumers. This Android phone is just one of many smartphone models we plan to introduce worldwide in the years ahead.?
In addition to the Android model, LG announced in early September that it will be introducing a minimum of 13 new smartphones over the next 16 months that utilize Microsoft?s Windows Mobile. The newest release, version 6.5, was announced just last week.
The LG-GW620 will be available in the fourth quarter of this year in select European markets.
