• LG Optimus S
    Last Updated: Nov 16th,2010

    The LG Optimus S is LG's first Android phone in collaboration with Sprint. Sprint is looking to market this as a super affordable Android device. It will cost only 50.00 after rebates. It has a 3.2 inch touchscreen, a 600 Mhz processor, a 3.15 MP camera, and more. It does run stock Android as per Sprint's request.

    Perhaps the most unique thing about this phone is that it is one of three new phones that will be using the new Sprint ID. What this is, is an interface that allows you to automatically customize your home screen with widgets and apps that relate to the particular ID you have chosen.

    For instance, sports fans can download the ESPN and get apps, widgets, wallpapers and more tailored to those who love sports without having to find it all themselves in the Android market. It's a unique feature that is a great marketing bulletpoint for anyone looking for a new, affordable phone that is easy to set up.
