Last night LG had a press launch event, and there they announced the upcoming release of the LG Optimus One which is the bigger (better) brother of the LG Optimus. It features a HVGA 3.2″ capacitive display, 600MHz CPU, Android 2.2 & a 3.2MP camera.
Neerav Bhatt was on the scene to check it out, and said that the Optimus One benchmarked the same as the HTC Desire running 2.1, so this isn’t a slow device, and an even bigger plus, it isn’t a resistive screen like the LG Optimus. The Optimus One will be released on Optus during October for $349 or on low-end caps, and it will also come with a full GPS Kit valued at $99 (Mount, Car Charger, GPS Maps).
This device certainly looks more promising than the original Optimus.
