Are you seaching for an Android-powered smartphone? If so, you might want to consider LG’s latest offering: the Korean electronics giant has just launched its new Optimus One smartphone in a press conference held at the Pan Pacific Hotel on 14 September. And VR-Zone is proud to bring to you its coverage of the event.
It is not difficult to see why people believe that smartphones are the next big thing in mobile computing. With their ability to remain connected to the internet almost 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the smartphone has proven itself to be a tremendous asset for people dependent on the consumption and dissemination of online content for their communication or livelihood needs.
And when the smartphone plays such a vital role in today’s highly connected world, it is of upmost importance that one gets a device that is capable of fulfilling such needs as efficiently as possible, while delivering the best user experience at the same time. And this is precisely what LG Electronics is claiming to be capable of with its newly launched LG Optimus One, an Android-powered smartphone.
Officiating the launch at the Pan Pacific Hotel was Augustine Lim (pictured below), Director of Mobile Communications for LG Electronics Singapore, who spoke about the significance of the Optimus product line and what it meant for the company.
“This is a very important day for us at LG, because we are launching the first of our full range of key products,” he said. “It (the LG Optimus One) is going to foray our entry into the smartphone market.”
Also present at the launch was Patrick Fong, Product Manager for Mobile Communications at LG Electronics, who talked about the various features LG had implemented into the Optimus One in order to distinguish itself from the competition.
“You will notice that the LG Optimus One has a ‘with Google’ brand attached to it,” he said. “This is because LG actually co-developed the phone with Google, and the software has been optimized in order to run faster on the Optimus One’s hardware.”
Specs-wise, the LG Optimus One sports the standard hardware one would usually expect in a smartphone. A 600MHz processor provides the smartphone’s processing capabilities, while the bundled 1500 mAh battery offers a respectable 450 minutes of 3G talk time on a single charge. The device also has a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen which is capable of HVGA resolutions (320 x 480).
