After recently releasing QWERTY smartphone Optimus Pro in the country, LG has launched another Android device Optimus Net. There has been no official announcement, but that is not odd considering that we don’t hear from LG India half the time. Looks like they are busy selling TVs and Refrigerators this festive season, rather than marketing their Android phones.
LG India official website already lists Optimus Net and the smartphone has started reaching retail store and can also be purchased from online store Flipkart. Being an entry-level device, company has priced it decently; it will cost you INR 9,999.
For spending almost 10K, you get a 3.2 inch capacitive display, Android 2.3, 3MP camera, 800MHz processor, 1500mAh battery, 150MB internal storage and the usual WiFi, Bluetooth and microSD card slot.
LG has put its own UI over Gingerbread in the smartphone and must have pre-loaded some crappy apps. At the time of original handset debut in in July, LG has suggested a dual-SIM variant for Asia, but it seems company retracted from that thought, so Optimus Net version in India is a single SIM phone.
We spent some time with the device a Qualcomm event in the past, and the device seems decent, touchscreen and overall response was pretty nice for an entry-level phone. Although, it feels a little plasticy but one really cannot expect a high-end hardware at this price range.
Those of you still waiting to buy an Android phone this device, you can surely add Optimus Net to your list of choices.
