LG GW620 Android coming to the UK

The LG GW620 is reportedly coming to both T-Mobile and Virgin Mobile here in the UK.

The device which runs Android 1.5, Cupcake, will be known as the INTOUCH MAX. Running this early version of Android is not the best news but hardware wise it doesn’t look too bad. With Motorola recently releasing the Dext and soon to be releasing the BackFlip its nice to see LG are bringing some competition to the market.

The slide out five row QWERTY keyboard certainly looks impressive and not too dissimilar to that on the HTC Touch Pro2. It will however be smaller as the INTOUCH MAX screen is 3 inches.

The INTOUCH MAX has not yet made its way to the T-Mobile website but it is on the Virgin Mobile one, although showing as out of stock. The device will be available on Virgin for free for as little as £22.00 per month and as well as minutes this deal also includes unlimited texts and internet, although I’m not sure of their terms and conditions with regards to fair usage.
