LG launches first Android phone LG Electronics has announced the launch of their first ever Android-based mobile phone, the LG-GW620.
The LG-GW620 has a 3-inch touchscreen and a full slider QWERTY keyboard. The camera is 5MP but otherwise, details were scarce.

“The LG-GW620 will appeal to first-time smartphone customers by offering a new and different kind of user experience,”
adds Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company via the press release. “Our objective is to provide a wide selection of smartphones to satisfy the diverse preferences of today’s consumers. This Android phone is just one of many smartphone models we plan to introduce worldwide in the years ahead.”

Interestingly, the press release spoke more about LG's upcoming Windows Mobile-based smartphones, which will use 6.5 and should be out before the end of the year.

The LG-GW620 will hit the EU in the Q4, with no US date set.
