LG Etna materializes as Android-powered LG GW620

LG logoThe LG first handset to run on the Android OS is already a fact. Today LG have announced the GW620 - a touchscreen handset with a side-sliding full QWERTY keyboard. The company obviously didn't see any need for publishing the specs of the device, save for the size of the touchscreen.

We are looking at a 3-inch unit here that should start selling in the last quarter of the year and that's about as much as we can get from LG.

Rumor has it though that the LG GW620 will also sport a 5 megapixel camera, GPS and HVGA (480 x 320 pixels) resolution for the display. Additionally the appearance of the handset on the Wi-Fi Alliance web page suggests that it will also pack WLAN.

Unfortunately LG decided to spare us the details and leave us guessing for at least a couple of more months, focusing most of the press release on their Windows Mobile products. LG obviously don't want to rock the boat of their Microsoft relationship but then again why did they even bother announcing the LG GW620 in the first place.

Maybe they should have just quietly shipped it to the market to make sure that no one at the Microsoft HQ loses their sleep.
