LG Optimus Black gets its promised white version; pre-orders available in the UK
It was a bit strange and confusing when we heard about it for the first time, but we knew that a white version of the LG Optimus Black was coming despite the obvious contradiction with the device's title. Well, it looks like the issue has been solved in a simple, straightforward way – by changing the market name of the smartphone.

Listed as the LG Optimus White, a white Optimus Black model has been put for pre-order on UK cellphone retailer Phone4U's web page. Shipments are expected to begin no later than June 15, and the handset's price has been accordingly set to zero after committing to a contract with Vodafone, Orange, or O2. 

If we do not take the color difference into account, both the LG Optimus White and the LG Optimus Black appear to be absolutely identical. You get the same 9.2 millimeters thin Android 2.2 Froyo-powered smartphone that shines with its bright 4-inch NOVA display. However, if neither the white nor the black version of the device seems tempting to you, a pink model is expected to land as well. Would anyone bet that it would be called the LG Optimus Pink?
