LG releases the Android-running InTouch Max GW620 in the UK
LG have just announced the market availability of their first Android handset - the LG InTouch Max GW620. That makes it three out of the top five mobile phones manufacturers selling Google OS devices, with the Sony Ericsson membership in this club being just a matter of time.
The LG InTouch Max GW620 is a full QWERTY-packing side slider with a 3" HVGA display. It runs on Android 1.5 (or otherwise known as Cupcake) and sports a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, capable of taking D1 videos @ 30 fps.
The other noteworthy features of the LG GW620 include a microSD card slot, GPS and Wi-Fi. The quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support is complemented by HSDPA 7.2 Mbps.
Starting today, you can get the LG InTouch Max GW620 for free on T-Mobile UK with a 2-year-long 24 GBP/month contract with unlimited data. Virgin Media also offers it for free on an 18-month 22 GBP/month contract with unlimited texts and data.
It might not be the best spec'd Android smartphone around but the LG GW620 seems like a pretty good deal at this stage.
