The robots are coming: on the heels of Motorola announcing its first Android handset last week, South Korea’s LG Electronics is hot on its heels, today unveiling the LG-GW620, it’s own first Android device. The LG-GW620 will sport a 3-inch LCD touchscreen and a full slide-out QWERTY keypad for messaging…but LG held back most of the rest of the phone’s details.
“The LG-GW620 will appeal to first-time smartphone customers by offering a new and different kind of user experience,” said LGE Mobile Communications Company president and CEO Dr. Skott Ahn, in a statement. “Our objective is to provide a wide selection of smartphones to satisfy the diverse preferences of today’s consumers. This Android phone is just one of many smartphone models we plan to introduce worldwide in the years ahead.”
LG apparently sees Android-based handset as a vehicle for putting accessible smartphones in the hands of consumers and young professionals; in the meantime, LG is putting lots of attention into Windows Mobile smartphones for the corporate, government, and enterprise set, saying that it will be introducing at least 13 new Windows Mobile smartphones over the next 16 months—with three coming in the lext few weeks.
LG anticipates shipping the the LG-GW620 in some European markets in the fourth quarter of 2009.
