LG Optimus One sales hit 1 million
Manama, November 25, 2010
LG announced that worldwide sales of its Optimus One smartphone have hit one million units just 40 days after the phone’s initial launch.
Now available in the Middle East after the global roll-out last month, the Optimus One is the fastest selling mobile handset in the company’s history, a statement said.
Powered by the Android 2.2 “Froyo” OS and optimised for Google Mobile Services, the LG Optimus One has been a big hit with first-time smartphone buyers looking for high performance and useful applications in a handset priced very competitively to feature phones, it said.
“The versatile, powerful LG Optimus One was designed to provide an easy transition into the world of smartphones and as these numbers demonstrate, there is obviously a strong demand for this type of device,” HS Paik, president of LG Electronics Gulf.
One of the first smartphones to launch with Google’s latest operating system, the Optimus One allows for up to three times faster internet browsing, web-page loading, and multi-tasking.
The Optimus One also incorporates a unique LG-designed user-interface (UI) along with a camera that features face tracking and smile shot, a 3.2” wide HVGA screen and a long-lasting 1500mAh capacity battery.
LG’s new smartphone comes in a wide range of colour schemes including black, wine, titan, blue, silver and purple.-TradeArabia News Service
