Guinness Records certifies the Optimus 2X as "the world's first dual-core smartphone"

Guinness Records certifies the Optimus 2X as
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.

really? because i had the motorola droid x, and switched to this phone, and from my experience this phone rocks the socks off any other one that is out. dont just troll on a phone cause its from a certain manufacturer. you are just like the people that hate the iphone.

What kind of phone do you like, an iPhone? The LG Optimus 2x, also known here in the US as the LG G2x, is by far the best Android phone that I have been able to check out; aside from the fact that it runs on T-Mo's 4G network. In my opinion LG is one of the best phone manufactures there is alongside with Motorola, Samsung, and HTC.

The Motorola Atrix was the first dual-core released here in the US, but it's not the first one made. I remember reading leaks of the Optimus 2x back in like Oct. or Nov. 2010; and if I remember right, there wasn't any kind of news about a dual-core Motorola phone until CES 2011.

That's not a real record to me because it's not like it could be broken, it's more like an achievement.
