LG-P699 gets its Bluetooth approval & appears to be T-Mobile's Optimus Net
A couple weeks ago, LG simultaneously introduced the LG Optimus Pro and Optimus Net, but those two Android powered smartphones are destined for the European markets.

Well, it seems that the LG Optimus Net will be making its way to the US in the form of T-Mobile’s Optimus Net seeing that the LG-P699 recently received its Bluetooth certification prominently showing off T-Mobile’s branding. Going by the model number LG-P669, it’s believed to be T-Mobile’s version of the Optimus Net because it shares many design similarities with the LG Optimus from a couple weeks ago. In fact, it utilizes the same overall styling, but it’s sporting a lighter colored backplate.

Strangely, the description given to the handset remarks that “this model will be available on North America AT&T Market around August 2011.” So far, we haven’t heard anything in regards to an AT&T launch, but there is always that possibility of course. If it does hold true, we should be expecting some sort of official confirmation very soon since August just recently arrived. Either that, or it could simply be nothing more than a typo.

I just hope it works unlike HTC Evo 3D's new bluetooth 3.0 and how it DOES NOT sync contacts with older cars. I have a 2008 BMW, which I guess is considered old.

Wonder if LG are going to release a phone called the Optimus Prime, a phone that transforms into something else. I would buy it just for that. This phone doesn't look so good, though.
