Shalom. The LG Star, a handset we first broke images of earlier this week, has made its way into the hands of GSM Israel for a pretty thorough hands-on overview. Too bad we can’t understand a lick of what is said past the initial greeting. The dual-core Tegra 2 Android 2.2 handset features a 4-inch screen, HDMI port, and 8MP camera also looks a lot like the recently leaked Motorola Olympus, which in turn is reminiscent of the Galaxy S, which itself look a lot like the iPhone 3G. I’m sensing a trend here. Actually, the LG Star (P990) has a look more similar to the iPhone 4, which is exactly what the device is compared to with browser load speed tests (and it looks pretty quick to boot).
If you thought 2010 was a big year for Android and smartphones, it looks like manufacturers will be stepping their game up exponentially in 2011. It is going to be a good year.
