LG Optimus Net will have dual SIM, NFC and QWERTY (for North America) versions

Today, LG has provided more info on its newest Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphones, the LG Optimus Net P690 and the QWERTY-equipped LG Optimus Pro C660.

First of all, both handsets will be available “starting this summer” in 30 markets. European countries will get them first.

The Optimus Pro will be released in white, black, and titan, while the Optimus Net is coming in white and black.

What’s really interesting is that the Optimus Net will have three other versions besides the standard one. In North America, it will come with a sliding QWERTY keyboard (and I assume at least some of the major carriers – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile – will offer it). In Brazil, China, Asia and CIS countries, the phone will have dual SIM capabilities. Also, in select European markets, the new Optimus will be NFC-ready.

As previously reported, the LG Optimus Net will cost about €200, while the Optimus Pro should cost about €180. LG will likely sell millions of these handsets, just like it did with the Optimus One P500.
