LG GW880 at China Mobile
LG will release its GW880 smartphone together with wireless provider China Mobile, according to these leaked images. The device will be preloaded with OPhone OS, a version of Google's open-source Android that has been approved by the Chinese government. The GW880 has support for China’s TD-SCDMA/EDGE 3G connection and includes a 3.5-inch touchscreen with 800x480 resolution, 512MB of built-in memory and 256MB of RAM. There is also built-in GPS, Bluetooth and a 5-megapixel camera.
Like on other OPhone handsets, users can download applications from the Mobile Market portal. The Software Development Kit (SDK) for both the OPhone OS and Android OS is the same, so applications written for either will work on the other.
A release date or pricing information for the GW880 in China remain unknown. [via SlashPhone]
