Yeah, its an 800x480 3.5" OLED capacitive screen.
The usb is on the top left, opposite of the LG on the top right.headphone is in the same place, and the speaker is a speaker, you can see it on the bottom right of the phone..
and yeah, it sells between £80-£100 depending on if you are Orange already and/or need a sim/topup.

I just saw the specs on pdadb.net and that zte blade has a 480x800 screen! Is that correct?!
And you say it's sold for how much? £100? I want one!!
The USB plug is in a very strange place. The LG P500 is a bit better in this respect, but it seems to be priced at 200€+ :(
I'm going to wait a bit longer for the special Christmas promos that may be comming to this corner of Europe.
Looks like 2.1 UK vodafone update is live... http://android.modaco.com/content-page/311477/lg-gt540-rom-updates-from-lg/page/440/

Lol...i've not given up on it..Sure I got rid of it, and got another budget Android phone, the ZTE Blade(Orange San Francisco), but still posting here, to help...
But over the past week or so, the amount of idiots posting here, without bothering to read is amazing..lol.
From what I've seen of the new LG's, the 500 might be good, but it's really the GT540 with a capacitive screen, and not much more, still a tiny screen, when you think about it, and with HTC about to enter the budget phone market, and ZTE and others promising more budget handsets, it looks like LG will be getting the boot, as there are more impressive handsets on the horizon.
If you look at Modaco, there are people sending the Blade/San Francisco's to other parts of the world, to people who can't get it on their markets...an idea if it is one you would look to buy, and with the tremendous support it has on there, and with custom roms aplenty, and Froyo coming soon, it's a nice cheap good performing phone..
Congrates to all lg gt540 users...
This phone got the award for best phone of the year....
Diluen, 21 Oct 2010Lol. No problem. Its been days since RFB posted. I wonder if he's still alive...RFB has given up on the LG GT540.
He is now a proud owner of Orange San Francisco and claims it is much better than the gt540.
Unfortunately, that model will never be available here in Portugal. :(
I'm looking forward for the LG P500 (optimus one) and I'm hoping for a similar price to this GT540, but with multi-touchscreen and froyo! :)

m intrstd in buying dis phn..
plz can ny1 lst d pros n cons f hvng dis phn..
ny... moreu haven't specified what are u gonna do with this phone .. like for business purpose or other .. if its for business purpose .. well .. u knw its a business class phone with net browsing and supports pdf files..if u are gonna use it normally .. like entertainement and all that then still its gud.. since its an adroid phone obviously u can expect a lot .. and it does fulfill ur expectations(as far i am concerned)..there is a 3 mp cam ..eventhough i ddnt like the color quality .. its kinda dull once u compare it with other phone cams(i used to use sonyericsson g502 and it gave decent color quality)..other than that its pretty much ok for me ..
-everything given in d specs
-u can even download new apps from android market
-better than the other business class phones available in the market
-no dual sim option which was necessary in a business class phone
-using net eats up d battery a lot..ifu are a frequent net user dont forget to take ur charger with u
