LG P880 and P700 Android smartphones discovered, MWC debut sounds plausible
It appears that someone who had too much spare time at their disposal has discovered a pair of new LG Android smartphones. The handsets in question, known only as the LG P880 and the LG P700 at this time, have passed UPnP certification on February 1.

The P880 is likely to be a high-end smartphone judging by the fact that it is allegedly equipped with a 1280 by 720 HD display. Providing the processing power is a TI OMAP 44x0 processor accompanied by 1 gigabyte of RAM. In terms of software, the smartphone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Besides, it is possible that the smartphone we are dealing with is the LG X3, which we heard of not long ago.

As far as the P700 is concerned, it is said that its display has a resolution of 480 by 640 pixels. The processor under its hood is a TI OMAP 4430 with two cores clocked at 1GHz, according to the source. Just like the P880, the LG P700 will run the Ice Cream Sandwich flavor of Android out of the box. Also, judging by the unusual for a smartphone aspect ratio of its display, a physical portrait QWERTY keyboard is not out of the question.

If these two smartphones are to ever see the light of day, chances are that we might learn more about them at the upcoming MWC expo in Barcelona. The show kicks off on February 27, so make sure you mark that date in your calendars.

Haha! I agree on that. I live is Sweden where iphones are dominating, but now that you mention it none of my friends has a LG. Maybe I simply need to get more friends :)
