LG cancels its Android Froyo tablet, waits for Gingerbread? LG Optimus One available this month in Korea

Remember how we told you that LG has delayed its Froyo Optimus tablet? Well, the company is now saying that the tablet has been actually cancelled.

However, LG will introduce an Android tablet sometime soon, it just won’t be a Froyo-based one.

According to Reuters, an LG official said: “We are in talks with Google to decide on the most suitable version for our tablet and that is not Froyo 2.2.”

If it’s not Froyo, it’s got to be Gingerbread, right? Right. Which means LG’s first Android tablet will likely be available sometime next year – just like Motorola’s Gingerbread tablet. OK, we’re waiting.

Tablets aside, today LG announced that the Optimus One smartphone would be launched in South Korea this month, via all three major carriers (under different names: LG SU370, LG KU3700 and LG LU3700).

Running Android 2.2 Froyo, the Optimus One features a 3.2 inch HVGA display,3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3.2MP autofocus camera, and 600MHz processor. Starting late October, the smartphone will be available in 90 countries around the world, including in Europe and North America (where Verizon may launch the device as LG Vortex).
