LG’s Budget Optimus T and Optimus S Announced for USA

Like Samsung’s Galaxy range, new examples of LG’s Optimus phones keep popping up around the world! The latest pair are the Optimus T and Optimus S, this time destined for T-Mobile and Sprint in the USA respectively, although we wouldn’t be surprised if either one appears elsewhere at a later date too.

The Optimus T’s spec sheet reads as follows:

  • Google Android 2.2.
  • A 3.2 capacitive touchscreen.
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus.
  • A 600MHz processor.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a microSD card slot.
  • Assisted GPS.

The Optimus S shares the same feature list, and the pair are likely to be low-cost contract phones. These two, plus a variety of other Android phones sharing basically the same spec have appeared at the CTIA show this week, from manufacturers such as Sharp with the Zio and Huawei with the Ascend.

Cheap Android phones are great, but when you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, plus they never beat the HTC Wildfire in terms of features and especially, looks. Plus, if LG want to become a player in the Android world, it’s going to take something a lot more interesting than these two to do it.

Both these LG Optimus phones are scheduled for release before Christmas and will be available in several different colours. LG haven’t mentioned anything about a European launch, but in all honesty, would we really want either of them?
