LG has lifted the lid on two new additions to its ever-growing Optimus family of Android smartphones, aimed at cost-conscious consumers.
The Optimus Pro is an archetypal text and touch phone that combines a physical QWERTY keyboard for tapping out emails and the like with a 2.8-inch touchscreen.
It’s also home to hotkeys for composing messages and scheduling tasks, underscoring its BlackBerry-esque appeal.
The Optimus Net, on the other hand, is touchscreen-only number that rocks a HVGA 3.2-inch display and allows users to share content and the LG Social+ widget, which integrates content into a unified inbox to make it easier to keep on top of all your social engagements.
Both phones will launch with the 2.3 version of Android, aka Gingerbread, on board, so you'll be getting the best that the platform from the get-go.
Earlier this week saw the LG Optimus 3D land in the UK. The smartphone features the same stereoscopic technology as the Nintendo 3DS and stands out for its glasses-free 3D gaming and video capabilities.
