I think we all hoped with the announcement of yet another new version of the OS that phones launching with good old Android 1.6 would become a thing of the past. Turns out there are a few more that still need to get worked out of the system, and oddly enough it now appears that the LG Optimus Q will be one of them. Up until now it was widely believed that the Optimus Q — or LU2300 if you prefer — would come running on Android 2.1, and for a phone of it’s caliber 1.6 seems like a big step backwards (I mean, even the LG Ally runs 2.1). Nevertheless this is what the below screen shot would have us believe.
At least users will be getting some enhanced functionality with the inclusion of Air Sync, LG’s own method of pushing content such as photos, video, and text from a PC to your phone over the air. This phone for now has only been confirmed for a release in South Korea, so no word yet when it may reach other places.
