LG Optimus Black Goes White for UK Pre-order
Now when one thinks of the LG Optimus Black naturally you think a black coloured smartphone, but what if LG push out a white version of the Opimus Black, something we already knew was going to happen, and now it has and the LG Optimus White as it is being called is now available for pre-order in the United Kingdom.
According to an article over on Phone Arena, the LG Optimus White is now up for pre-order in the UK with Phones4U, with shipments of the Android smartphone kicking off no later than the 15th of this month, and furthermore you can snap up the LG Optimus White as a free handset on certain contacts.
According to Phones4U the LG Optimus White will be free with Vodafone on 2-year contracts commanding Â£20.50 and above per month with 300 minutes and 3000 texts, while on Orange you can get the handset for free for Â£20 per month based on a 2-year agreement with 500 minutes and 3000 texts, and on O2 you can snap up the Optimus White for free for Â£20.50 per month on an 18 month contract with 100 minutes and 500 texts, (looks like O2 is being a bit stingy there.).
As far as we are aware the change with the LG Optimus Black is purely cosmetic and the smartphone still offers the same specifications such as a 4-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, 2 megapixel front facing camera, 2GB internal memory, microSD expansion up to 32GB, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and of course Android 2.2 Froyo OS.
Of course other than the colour change, the name of the smartphone has changed to the LG Optimus White, which might lead to some confusion and thinking the device is a completely new handset but of course it isn’t.
According to LG recently, the LG Optimus Black has seen solid demand along with sister handset the LG Optimus 2x despite LG lowering its phone sales targets, so perhaps the LG Optimus White can also attract the same solid demand and go some why to helping LG out of their smartphone slum they are currently facing.
Anyway, you can now get the LG Optimus Black in both black and white, so any of our reader’s tempted to snap up the LG Optimus White rather than the LG Optimus Black or are you not too bothered about the colour of your smartphone?
