Cheers !

[deleted post]You computation is incorrect, you have added an extra zero. They sold 1 million in 40 days. That translate into 25,000 units a day not 250000 :) I sure LG would love to believe that it was the later.

Udy, 26 Nov 2010I got it for 12.8K from Mobile Store. so 300 for your old mobile... more@Udy

lol no, I got it for 12.5k , I also got 1.3k for my old phone so paid 11.2k totally. I had a Asus P320 for a little more than 2 years, battery was almost a gonner and screen was not responding properly.

I know the price of this phone will only fall and probably stabilize around the Galaxy 3 price but I couldn't wait and I have no regrets.

The battery is phenomenal. The touch is really responsive and I can appreciate the difference in a capacitive screen over the previous restive one that I had.

I plan to root this phone in the future to remove all the nonsense that these people have added in to free up the on board memory.

The keyboard is a little cramped even for the T9 but is fine if you move to landscape. It has a nice solid build and people handling it are reasonably impressed.

Sadly there was no news abt optimus one or chick at that time.
The only competitor was HTC wildfire.

So i decided to buy galaxy 3 instead. Now regret my decision.
Really disappointed. Screen can be described in just one word- PIXELATED :-)

Just as an FYI, LG has sold 1 million units of Optimus one in just 40 days and this one's probably the best Budget Android phone money can buy with a 2.2 running on it. Get your facts straight and your English too. LG not only created a market for itself but also has forced other manufacturers to provide an upgrade (From 1.6, 2.1 to 2.2) to their customers already using Android phones. I'd suggest you to first take a look at the phone and then comment. Your perceptions towards a product may misguide someone here.
