The Carphone Warehouse has announced it will be stocking the LG Optimus One (P500) from today (4 November). The phone is available from free with a £20 per month contract.
The LG Optimus One runs on the latest version of the Android operating system, Froyo 2.2. The touch screen device is designed to be user-friendly and affordable, making it ideal for first-time Smartphone users.
The handset is described as being faster and easier to use than its predecessor, the Optimus GT540, and comes with a range of enhancements such as wireless hotspot useability, a better web browser and sliding screens for multitasking.
The device is also optimised for Google Mobile Services including Google Shopper and Google Maps with Navigation. The Optimus One comes with Adobe Flash integration and a crisp 3.2 inch touch screen.
The LG Optimus One also features the brand new LG App Advisor, which recommends 10 highly rated apps every fortnight so users are always informed of the latest available on the Android market. The phone already has built-in Facebook and Twitter apps and features a built-in MP3 player, FM radio and 3.5mm headphone jack.
It also has a 3.2 Megapixel autofocus camera, which allows users to edit the shots with the face-recognition software and then upload them straight up to Facebook and Twitter or share them with others via Bluetooth 2.1.
The Optimus One supports microSD cards up to 32GB, and comes with a 2GB card included.
