LG unveils first Android handset

Android announcements are coming through by the boatload at the moment, with South Korea’s LG Electronics the latest to join the throng on Monday with the announcement of its first Android-based device.

The LG-GW620 features a three inch full touchscreen and slide out QWERTY hardware keypad but other details are scant. The vendor did make mention of email and social networking services as well as those developed by Google, however.

More details on the device will be revealed closer to its launch in Europe in the fourth quarter of 2009.

But LG is not putting all its eggs in one basket. Earlier this month the company unveiled three Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets, and said that it plans to introduce a minimum of 13 new smartphones over the next 16 months that utilise Microsoft’s Windows Mobile.
