LG Optimus S hands-on overview, Android 2.2 for less than $50 from Sprint
I asked LG to show an overview of the LG Optimus S, a $50 Android 2.2 Froyo device coming from Sprint this October.
The LG Optimus S is one of the first Android-powered devices to offer personalized experience with Sprint ID, a new user-friendly way of personalizing Android devices with applications, widgets, ringtones and wallpapers. It will also be the only Sprint ID phone to launch with Android 2.2 offering users hotspot functionality.
It features a 3.2-inch capacitive touch-screen and 3.2MP camera with 2x digital zoom on a sleek and slim design.
LG Optimus S's mobile hotspot feature, connecting up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices, such as laptops, gaming devices and digital cameras, at 3G speeds anywhere on the Sprint 3G network is an additional feature for $29.99 a month.
LG Optimus S will be available beginning on Sunday, Oct. 31, in all Sprint retail channels including www.sprint.com and 1-800-SPRINT1 for just $49.99 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade and after a $100 mail-in rebate (pricing excludes taxes).
