LG may have just inked a deal promising to release 13 new Windows Mobile phones in the next 16 months, but that didn’t stop the company from announcing its first Android smartphone this morning.
The phone features a 3-inch touch screen interface and a 4-row QWERTY keyboard. The only rub is that the phone is slated for release in Europe with no indication of when American consumers might get a chance to cop a GW620.
It’s great to see so many handset companies getting behind Android phones. This model looks fairly comparable to the recently-announced Motorola CLIQ except for the upgraded keyboard.
Microsoft can’t be thrilled to watch another ally dabble in Android. However LG, much like HTC, would be unwise to ignore the market potential of Android.Similar Stories:
