Image of AT&T’s LG Optimus One hits the Internet

Blog PocketNow has acquired an image of what is presumed to be AT&T’s variant of the LG Optimus One. The popular, mid-level device — which sports a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 800MHz processor, and largely unmolested version of Android 2.2. — is available on a half-dozen regional and national U.S. carriers. We would expect the device to be released under the moniker Optimus A — as is customary: Optimus + first letter of carrier name — but with AT&T, you never really know. If you read our report from earlier this morning, you’ll know that Android handsets costing under $150 are projected to be big business in 2011. More →

LG Optimus One sales top 1 million units

LG announced Tuesday that sales of its entry level Optimus One smartphone hit 1 million units within the first 40 days of availability. The LG Optimus One is an affordable smartphone powered by version 2.2 of Google’s popular Android operating system. With the device, LG shows us once again that there is still very high demand for capable devices that are also affordable. While the bulk of sales likely fell outside of the U.S., the Optimus One is currently available from Sprint, branded as the Optimus S, and T-Mobile, branded as the Optimus T. Verizon Wireless will soon become the third major U.S. carrier to launch the device, branded as the Vortex, on November 18th. LG’s Optimus One features a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen display, a 600MHz processor, a 3-megapixel camera, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS and microSDHC support. More →
