LG announces two high-end Android powered smartphones
LG's camp may have been quiet on the high-end Android front, but they're not sitting around any longer and let the competition get the best of them. After hearing about the peppy specs with the LG LU2300 not too long ago, LG has gone out and officially announced it and another premier Android offering with the LG KU9500/SU950 in the hopes of capturing some interest. Both devices are packing some serious heat under the hood as they feature a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5” WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, Dolby mobile surround sound, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5-megapixel camera. On the software side of things, “LG Air Sync” will enable uses to share content with a PC or web server wirelessly while “Scan Search” is an augmented reality app that'll be preloaded on the handsets. Now the major difference between the two is that the LG SU2300 will offer a QWERTY keyboard, built-on trackpad, and will be running Android 1.6 at first – but it's expected to receive an update to Android 2.1 some time between July and August. Conversely, the LG SU950/KU9500 will simply be your traditional looking candybar looking handset with Android 2.1 from the onset. Aside from be initially available through KT and SK Telecom in Korea, it's unknown if LG plans to make the handsets available elsewhere.

I see you dont get the point to my comment. as for my name I chose it because of people like you. First of all no where in the article does it say its a contract phone. Secondly my comment was because how cheaply made it looks and the design is no where as appealing as a hero, droid, iphone, or hd. So it looks more of a high end phone that would do good on prepaid because it no competition to the high end phones out right now on the major carriers. so yea no sense is what you have.

Or maybe they just won't be sold in the US... No way a prepaid company will get either of these. The LG Optimus has more of a chance of being sold on prepaid being that its a lower end Android phone.

I highly doubt they will become prepaid, my point is that they are just nothing on either phone that sticks out that would make it other than another regular phone that will come and go. Thats why I say that with all the better phones that run android and the iphone, this phone willnot make a big profit, unless it sold on a company that is prepaid that would make this their best high end phone to bring them business away from other basic prepaid companies

dude i see what you're saying. it looks cheap. like something they would release on cricket or metro. these could not compete with high end, better looking smartphones.
