While trying to make good on their promise to launch the Optimus One on 120 different carriers in 90 countries, LG will be making the Optimus One available on Three UK later this month.
The LG Optimus One is a midrange Android smartphone running Android 2.2 Froyo and it comes with a 3.2-inch 320×480 capacitive touchscreen, 3 MP autofocus camera with VGA video recording at 18 fps, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, WiFi 802.11g, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, 600 MHz processor, 170 MB internal memory expandable via a microSD card slot, DivX/XviD playback support, 1500 mAh battery, 129 g and dimensions of 113.5 x 59 x 13.3 mm. If you get your Optimus One from Three before the end of the year, you’ll also get a free car mount and car charger.
The Optimus One is apparently the first phone to have two antennas picking up Three’s 3G signal, which should mean that you’ll get very good download speeds. The Optimus One for Three will also come with LG’s App Advisor pre-installed, which recommends highly rated Android apps for you to download.
There’s no clear release date yet, although the phone will be available this month. Also, no mentions of price have been made, but you can register for updates on the Optimus One’s status here at Three.
