LG Optimus One with Google now available

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO – (NOVEMBER 24, 2010) – LG Electronics Canada today announced the launch of the LG Optimus One high performance smartphone, now available in Canada.  The LG Optimus One comes with the Android 2.2 operating system, Google’s newest and fastest platform which offers a 2-3 times better performance than previous versions of Android. 

“LG has delivered what customers really want in a smartphone with an enhanced UI, numerous customisable categories, call options and seven home screens,” said Colin Bettam, vice-president of Marketing, LG Electronics Canada.  “With the LG Optimus One we are offering customers a fantastic new Android experience with high performance at an affordable price.”

The high performance LG Optimus One utilises Google Services with a great new Chrome browser. The LG Optimus One truly lets you stay connected wherever you are by using your phone as a portable WiFi hotspot or through tethering:

–        WiFi Hotspot: The extra functionality of the WiFi hotspot allows multiple (up to five) customers to access the internet by sharing the LG Optimus One’s broadband connection over a small WiFi network.

–        Tethering: By connecting the LG Optimus One to your laptop, it can be used as a broadband modem. This gives the customer a mobile broadband connection without having to purchase another broadband dongle.

Other features of the LG Optimus One include:
