The time has finally come, the beast that is the LG Optimus 2X is now shipping from our friends over at MobiCity for a meaty $799. Powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2, the Optimus 2X is the first of the new Android smartphones to launch with 1080p video recording, which we’ve seen demoed a few times before. The Optimus 2X will no doubt feel the pressure from the upcoming Galaxy S II, though the 2X is $100 cheaper than the SGSII and, as we’ve read, is far easier to root. The device will also be upgraded to Android 2.3 in the near future and is more than capable of running future releases of the Android OS. Lucas will be reviewing the Optimus 2X in the next week or so, which I for one am looking forward to reading. So how about it? Does the Optimus 2X do it for you or will you wait it out a little longer?
