LG has just announced that their latest Android OS 2.2 Froyo phone, the Optimus T, will be an exclusive offering from T-Mobile. The company unveiled the Optimus T here at CTIA 2010 in San Francisco. The T-Mobile LG Optimus T is billed as the perfect Android phone with OS 2.2 for people who are upgrading from feature phones. Earlier last month, the manufacturer announced the LG Optimus 7, a Windows Phone 7 model.
The LG Optimus T isn’t going to compete with the HTC EVO 4G or Motorola Droid 2 World Edition in terms of hardware specs but it features “Voice Actions for Android,” which lets you directly use the phone through voice commands! You can send SMS, play music and video files, call, search Google, get GPS directions, and surf the Web just by speaking. LG is highlighting this accurate voice-command feature as truly unique and should be a big reason why people ought to buy the Optimus T android phone.
In addition, both LG and T-Mobile confirmed that the LG Optimus T will be available for purchase this holiday season. The release date will probably be before Christmas Day just in time for pre-Holiday deals. LG Optimus T’s pricing will be announced before November. The Optimus T will reputedly run on a 600 MHz processor and will finally sport a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display. Previous cheap Android phones from LG used a resistive touch screen but Samsung’s early success with the Samsung Galaxy 5 series (e.g., Samsung Galaxy 5 i5503, our cheap android phone test unit reviewed in this site) has apparently forced LG to also switch to capacitive technology.
