LG Optimus One races to 1m sales

LG’s Optimus One handset has powered to one million sales in a matter of weeks to officially become the South Korean company’s fastest-selling phone ever.

The Optimus One, which comes with Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, out of the box, achieved the worldwide sales landmark in just 40 days.

Prior to its release, LG had appeared to be losing out to the likes of HTC and Samsung, both of whose Android phones have the support of hardcore Fandroids and are credited with spreading the OS to the mass market.

Dr Jong-seok Park, President and Chief Executive Officer of LG’s mobile division, said: "The versatile, powerful LG Optimus One was designed to provide an easy transition into the world of smartphones and as these numbers demonstrate, there is obviously a strong demand for this type of device.

"Optimus One seems to be what many customers were waiting for, proving that smartphones aren't just for early adopters anymore."

Standout features of the Optimus One include a 3.2-inch touchscreen, customisable home screens and a three-megapixel camera.
