Back then, I blogged about how good the LG Optimus One is. Really … Android did them a favor because it resulted in a cool smartphone that rivals that of the iPhone. There is soft-touch coating all around the phone, interrupted only by the four nice, clickable Android buttons below the 3.2″ screen, the 3 megapixel camera on the back and the chrome-like bezel.
LG’s additions to the software actually make this phone more attractive with the big additions coming with a launcher, some nice widgets and added DivX VOD support to the operating system as well as subtle touches to the user interface of the dialer and contacts. There is no Adobe Flash support in the browser, and ThinkFree Office is included.
But the core of how good the LG Optimus One is, is how it works seamlessly with Android’s applications like Goggles to identify photos like landmarks, books, structures and many more. Look. To see is to believe right? Check out the video below detailing what things to expect when one owns an LG Optimus One.
LG pulled the covers off their Android-powered Optimus 2X smartphone, revealing the first handset to pack a Tegra 2 chipset—featuring a 1 GHz dual-core processor—under its hood.
The added processing power apparently allows the Optimus 2X to playback 1080p video with no lag on its 4-inch, 800×480 screen, and can supply visuals to larger displays thanks to HDMI mirroring.
And you can even use the HDMI connection to play Android games on a larger screen, still using the phone as a controller. Toss in 8 gigabytes of internal storage, along with front and rear cams (8 megapixels and 1.3 megapixels, respectively), and you have yourself a seemingly solid handset.
The Optimus 2X, slated for a 2011 release in Asia and Europe, will ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo), but of course, a 2.3 (Gingerbread) update will follow. There’s been no announcement about a U.S. release yet. Specs below:
1Ghz Dual-core Processor (NVIDIA Tegra 2)
4-inch WVGA screen
8GB memory (up to 32GB via microSD)
1,500 mAh battery
8 megapixel rear camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera

LG has given smartphone users another new phone product that leverages the power of Microsoft’s new Windows Mobile. Called the LG Optimus 7, it is LG’s representative to the lineup of Windows Phone 7 smartphones out in the market. I tell you, this smartphone is loaded with great features.
A new user interface, unique in my opinion shows the start screen made up of tiles. These tiles are links to applications, features, functions and items such as webpages, media items, contacts and others.
Users will be able to display videos and photos captured on their LG Optimus 7 on a TV or enjoy music on their phones through their favorite speakers without wires. Zune and Xbox users will find this smartphone works well with their device’s services like Xbox LIVE and Zune services by enabling them to have direct access to their favorite games and music for a more convenient experience.
Having a 5MP camera on a smartphone all the more makes it tempting to get one with its built-in features taking care of adjusting the necessary camera settings while all users have to do is point and shoot without worrying about adjustments. A panoramic mode for stitching together a full 360-degree landscape scene is one of its features that I find most impressive.
The LG Optimus 7 comes with 16GB of internal memory which is more than sufficient to store hundreds of music, videos and applications. The features I mentioned are only but a few of what you can find in the LG Optimus 7. There are so many things that you can do with it.
