Guinness Records certifies the Optimus 2X as "the world's first dual-core smartphone"
You know that you’ve made an indelible mark in the industry as being a first when Guinness World Records comes out to certify something that’s argued amongst many people. Sure it’s one thing to see LG deeming their lovely Optimus 2x as the “world’s first dual-core smartphone,” but it might not be enough to convince some of the pundits out there to actually make them believe it.

Well, Guinness World Records just recently solidified LG’s remark about their smartphone because they finally handed over the certification that blatantly states that the LG Optimus 2x is “the world’s first dual-core smartphone.” If that isn’t enough, their web site states, "The first mobile phone to use a dual core processor is the LG Optimus 2X, which was first made available to the public nationwide in South Korea, on 25 January 2011."

The end of January ushered in the era of the dual-core smartphones, and even though it took some time to see the handset’s variant arrive stateside in the form of the T-Mobile G2x, its entry into the market is still perceived as a landmark event.
