LG Optimus Black wins race of smartphones in new LG video

LG Optimus Black wins race of smartphones in new LG video
Getting a tour of Europe before an expected launch in the U.S., the LG Optimus Black is a sleek device with a 4 inch NOVA screen that offers a brighter 700 nit display, all in a package that weighs just 109 grams and is 9.2mm thin. As a way to promote the lightweight design of the Optimus Black, LG put together a video of a smartphone championship race.

The competition was cleverly given names that make it fairly easy to identify. For example, Ivan, with a 3.5 inch screen, is the Apple iPhone 4. The Samson Gary S. Jr is none other than the Samsung Galaxy S II. There are two other phones that compete in the race and we won't give away the result, although you probably can figure out which handset wins.

As we recently reported, the LG Optimus Black is now available for free from T-Mobile U.K. with a 2-year contract costing the equivalent of $41 a month or more. Hopefully, the unit's visit to the States will be coming soon.
