LG’s Android powered Optimus One is coming to Three, offering Android 2.2 out of the box, plus the option to use it as a stand-in dongle.
Available to pre-order on 3 now, the phone also packs in a 3.2-inch touchscreen, three-megapixel camera and seven customisable homescreens for you to fill with widgets, shortcuts and what have you.
Naturally, it offers the usual range of connectivity options, too, including Wi-Fi and Edge, plus GPS support and pre-installed Google Maps for sat-nav style directions.
You’ll be able to pick up the Optimus One on 3 on monthly contracts from £20 per month. That entry-level tariff gets you a free phone, plus 500 call minutes per month, 5,000 text messages and 1GB of mobile internet use.
And for a limited period, 3 is bundling a free car mount and charger with the handset, “so you can make the most of Google Maps while you’re on the road”.
3 has also confirmed the arrival of the Nokia C7 on contracts from £25 per month.
The phone is the second ever to feature Nokia’s revamped Symbian3 operating system and stands out too for its smooth multi-tasking capabilities, none too shabby 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen and eight-megapixel snapper with dual LED Flash, fixed focus, geotagging and face detection.
