LG, T-Mobile

LG and T-Mobile are bringing a budget-friendly, “simple to use, affordable Android device for first-time smartphone customers.” That’s a nice way of redundantly saying that power users should skip to the next article. But folks looking to purchase a new phone for personal use or a friend can read up on this upcoming device.

The LG Optimus T is an Android 2.2 device with much of the great features that previous versions of Android are unable to access (Voice Actions, Chrome to Phone, etc.). It’s basically a re-badged version of the LG Optimus One. The phone has a slightly-altered UI that mostly looks like stock Android, 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, a pre-installed 2GB microSD card, and support for up to 32 GB microSD.

The Optimus T will ship beginning this holiday season in Burgundy or Titanium colors. Despite being sure to call it “affordable” in the announcement, T-Mobile didn’t reveal pricing detail. What’s your definition of affordable, Magenta?
