LG Electronics has launched the LG InTouch Max GW620 on the T-Mobile and Virgin Media UK networks today. It's the company’s first Android mobile handset and runs the older 'cupcake' version 1.5 of Android.
The quad-band GSM and 3G HSPA-capable GW620 has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3-inch (320x480 pixel) touchscreen display and a 5 megapixel camera. There's also a built-in Social Networking Manager application (called Linkbook) that links the phone's contact list with online social networking profiles.
John Barton, Sales and Marketing Director for LG UK, said "This is a symbolic launch for us. It signals the end of expensive and exclusive applications and the start of applications for everyone. We are proud to bring out the LG InTouch Max which is a high performing and easy-to-use device that is perfect for those out there who want to experience the ever-growing and popular world of applications."
