LG Snapdragon Android smartphone coming Q2 2010


Using the Acer s200 at the moment I’m suitably impressed by the snappy Snapdragon processor. The idea of phones using this processor as a standard is tremendous. LG’s new device caught my attention over at Slashgear. Android and a slide out qwerty keyboard look like a winning combination.

LG have announced that they will be offering a Snapdragon-based Android smartphone in Q2 2010.  The device – which will initially be available in the Korean market – has not yet been named, and LG are keeping full specifications close to their chest, but according to the company’s VP of electronics, it will be a “more mature” device than the LG GW620 Eve which went on sale in Canada this week.



That might mean that LG squeeze in some mobile digital TV technology, popular in Korea, and which would be unlikely to make it over to European and North American markets.  Still, the company is apparently “considering” availability outside of Korea, which potentially sets up an interesting Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 versus LG Android showdown.
