astra -> LG-GW620: LG's First Android Smartphone . (9/14/2009 5:32:22 AM)

The new Android phone is just one of many smartphone models LG plans to introduce worldwide in the years ahead. 

LG Electronics has reinforced its aggressive strategy in smartphones by announcing the first Android mobile device called the LG-GW620. The announcement of LG's first Android-powered smartphones comes only a week after the company announced that it would be introducing three new Windows Mobile smartphones in the next few weeks.

The new LG-GW620 features a 3-inch full touchscreen and slide out QWERTY keypad. The LG-GW620 benefits from an operating system that was created from the ground up to take advantage of the many mobile applications and services developed by search leader Google.

In anticipation of strong demand for smartphones that support social networking functions right out-of-the-box, the LG-GW620 also lives up to LG's consumer-friendly design philosophy by making the smartphone experience more accessible for typical users. At the same time, LG's messaging phones have traditionally been very popular with young professionals who demand a full QWERTY keypad for a fast mobile computing experience. The LG-GW620 manages to meet the needs of both types of users simultaneously, explains the company.

“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, 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 utilise Microsoft's Windows Mobile. The newest release, version 6.5, was announced just last week.
