It seems like all big manufacturers (except Nokia) are going to enroll the green robot into their ranks. LG has announced its first handset with Google's operating system - LG GW620
, before Sony Ericsson's Xperia X3 which has only been rumored so far. The Korean manufacturer is making a move similar to the one Samsung has made, by releasing a device with no personalization of Google's platform interface and specifications typical for a middle-class Android smartphone. LG GW620 has a 3-inch screen (most likely with HVGA resolution), side-sliding QWERTY keyboard and 5-megapixel camera. The phone
is expected to be released in Europe in the last quarter of this year but pricing remains unknown. US availability of LG's first Android handset has not been mentioned so far.
LG is obviously just adding another operating system to implement in its future smartphones. The manufacturer remains loyal to its close relations with Microsoft and will emphasize on Windows smartphones, promising to release 13 new Windows Mobile handsets in the next 16 months.LG GW620 preliminary specifications
