LG launches its first Android smartphone

LG Electronics launched its first Android smartphone today, with the aim of bringing 'apps to the masses’.

Known as the LG InTouch Max GW620, the smartphone boasts over 20,000 applications available via the Android Market and a 5-line QWERTY and touchscreen keyboard.

Aimed at the social networking market, it comes with Linkbook -a built-in social networking manager app - that takes users straight to friends’ social networking profiles from their contact list

Other features include Auto Face-Tagging, a face recognition app and a Face-to-Action app which allows users to call, SMS, MMS or join their friends’ social networking sites simply by touching their faces in a picture.

The LG InTouch Max also comes with a 5-megapixel camera, a 3-inch touchscreen and a 1500mAh battery.     

John Barton, LG sales and marketing Director said: ‘This is a symbolic launch for us. It signals the end of expensive and exclusive applications and the start of applications for everyone.

'Many people don’t actually know that the Android market offers an impressive 20,000 plus applications which are easy to download, and of which 65% are free – and this selection is growing every day. We are proud to bring out the LG InTouch Max which is a high performing and easy-to-use device that is perfect for those out there who want to experience the ever-growing and popular world of applications.’

The LG InTouch Max GW620 is available on T-Mobile for free on a two year contract with unlimited data at £20 a month. Virgin Media will also range the device, free on an 18 month contract for £22 a month, with unlimited texts and data.
