LG has finally made dual core Android smartphone Optimus 2x available in India. Online retailer Flipkart is now selling it for INR 26,990, much below the announced recommended price of INR 30,000. It however is shipping it within 6 to 8 days, which is a bit odd considering Flipkart’s record of shipping in three days normally. They might be still waiting for the stock, which would be due in a few days, so this long shipping time.

Optimus 2x has already become the favorite toy of Android developers considering the amount of potential this phone has, we might be seeing the official CyanogenMod builds pretty soon, Modaco has already released one.
