Android running LG Optimus Z makes waves in Korea
LG is known the world over, for making Life Good. From refrigerators to TV’s LG has you covered. You and I however, know LG from their phones. Most all of us have owned an LG phone at one point in our lives and probably loved them at the time. Well LG is back in the game, (though they never left) with high powered Android devices.
LG has recently been in the news regarding Microsoft’s new project WP7, with recent reports from LG basically saying they are ready to go and have a WP7 phone on hand. But they haven’t stopped there. LG announced today that they will be launching an Android powered device in Korea, called the Optimus Z. The Optimus line has been circulating around the internet since April and is believed to be making its permanent home in Korea with the long term possibility to make its way to Europe. The new Optimus Z pictured has officially made its way to Korean based carriers KT and SK telecom. But down to the nitty-gritty the LG Optimus sports some pretty good specs. The Optimus will initially be running Androids OS version 2.1 with Froyo updates expected. The unit will sport a 1GHZ Snapdragon processor, a 3.5 inch WVGA touch screen, a 5 megapixel camera, a 1350 mAh battery, micro SD slot for external memory and a T-DMB mobile TV receiver which is supposedly a very important feature in Korea. The Optiimus Z will also support Dolby Mobile Audio and DivX video. Pretty impressive device I might say so myself. What is even way more interesting and damn near outlandish is that the Optimus Z will come with over 100 apps preinstalled, and reports are stating that up to 70 of these preinstalled apps are cannot be found on the market place.
While pricing and time frame on release are unknown in exacts, the two carriers lined up to receive the Optimus Z are currently taking pre orders and are hoping for an August release.
Let us know what you think of LG’s new Optimus Z.
