It's pretty much the Optimus One, but then specifically for T-Mobile.
This will be a smartphone for everybody.
T-mobile will offer this for free as soon as it comes out. i mean free from wirefly or amazon.
I think LG plans to make low-end smartphones to be more affordable to everybody.
maybe good or maybe bad....
This phone isn't as bad as as it looks.
This is basically the same phone as Optimus GT540 that was already released and people are reporting that it is surprisingly snappy. Wonder why?
That's because this 600MHz MSM7227 processor is sort-of half way between the old ARM11 based processors and 1st gen Snapdragons. MSM7227 uses Adreno 200 GPU from the Snapdragons. GT540 received Quadrant result of 465, which is only a bit lower than the Nexus One with 2.1 as shown here:
So given the low resolution, plus this GPU means the phone will be surprisingly snappy, and most games will run just fine.
I wouldn't buy it for me, but may look great for my kids. :)
