LG LU2300 Android phone unveiled

LG has announced a new Anrdoid smartphone, the LU2300, which the company is billing as the GW620 InTouch Max’s big brother.

Aimed at the more “serious” smartphone user, the handset is being positioned to compete with the likes of the Xperia X10 and HTC Legend.

Specs include a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5 megapixel camera, slide-out Qwerty keyboard, wi-fi and a DMB tuner.

It will run Android 2.1, and come with built-in “augmented reality” apps, which use the mobile’s camera, compass and GPS data to identify where the user is, and overlay web data on a map of the local area.

In other words, if you want to find the nearest curry house late on a Friday night, the LU2300 will be able to promptly locate it, and show you clear directions.

Whether you can follow those directions without colliding with a wheelie bin and falling in the gutter is another matter.

The phone is certainly a tasty offering all round. Pricing is an unknown, as is the release date for the UK, although it will be out in Korea either this month or next. So there shouldn’t be too much of a wait.
