Woolworths is to stock LG’s latest low-cost Android phone aimed at consumers who want a cheap handset without a telco plan in tow from April.
The LG Optimus Me is a 2.8inch capacitive touchscreen phone that runs on Google’s Android 2.2 operating system and features the latest smartphone apps in a smaller, cheaper package.
The Optimus Me sports a 600MHz CPU (slightly more power than a Huawei IDEOS U8150), 2GB memory and a microSD slot to increase the space up to 32GB. It also sports a three megapixel camera and can record and playback at VGA quality.
LG’s latest offering is tailored to first-time smartphone users with a user interface that has been simplified for newcomers while retaining Android functionality.
Consumers can pick up the LG Optimus Me (LG P350) for $229 outright at the beginning of April from supermarkets and stores including Woolworths, Dick Smith, Allphones and Telechoice.
