T-Mobile announces the LG Optimus T, an affordable Android smartphone

As this year’s end comes closer, LG is making inroads into the smartphone market in hopes to deliver at least in part on their claims about smartphone launches in 2010.

A big part of LG’s strategy relies on Android, and more specifically on the LG Optimus One, a device that will presumably launch with 120 operators in 90 countries.

Today, T-Mobile have officially announced the LG Optimus T, which looks like it’s an Optimus One made especially for T-Mobile.

The Optimus T will be aimed at first-time smartphone buyers. It will come with Android 2.2 and deep integration with Google services including Voice actions (customers can control the phone by speaking commands to call, text, email, find directions and so on).

The LG Optimus T will have a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with video capture, a microSD card slot and a 2GB card in the sales package.

If the other specs are indeed identical to the Optimus One, expect this handset to also have a 3.2-inch 320×480 capacitive touchscreen, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. The battery should be 1500 mAh in case it’s the same as that in the Optimus One.

The Optimus T will be available to T-Mobile customers this holiday season in two colors: Burgundy or Titanium.
