LG prepping Snapdragon-powered Android phone for 2010 release
LG has broken new ground with the release of their first Android phone, the GW620, otherwise known as the LG Eve in these parts. Unfortunately, compared to some of the newer Android phones such as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and Motorola Droid, its specs are a bit on the underwhelming side. If you agree that LG could have done a better job with the Eve, then maybe this latest bit of news will cheer you up.
LG is reportedly working on the Eve’s successor and one of its main upgrades will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Yup, you read that right boys and girls. LG will be hopping on the Snapdragon bandwagon and will be showcasing it in their next Android phone.
LG’s yet-to-be-named Android phone is scheduled to debut sometime in the second quarter of next year in Korea. That last footnote will probably strike fear in the hearts of many that it will only be limited to the Korean market, but there is a glimmer of hope this won't be the case as Slashgear reports that LG is “considering” its release elsewhere. We’ll report more on this as the story continues to unfold.
Hoping it will be responsive! unlike other lg touchscreens...
man i love news like this :D
sure its taken a bit longer then i had hoped, but seeing just about any brand of phone doing android just makes me happy!
