LG Etna Android at booth

Although overlooked by most, LG's first Android-based phone was spotted at last week's IFA technology show. So far nicknamed the Etna Android, the phone seen by German magazine Chip is a typical QWERTY slider design but with a 3-inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel camera. Little else was revealed by LG, though it's very likely the phone will also have 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi on top of expected features like Bluetooth.

Which model this will be isn't known, but the description tentatively matches the GW620 that briefly surfaced earlier. LG has publicly stated that it will have at least three Android phones ready to ship before the end of 2009. The company has planned a much more aggressive presence in smartphones and has struck deals with both Google and Microsoft to use their platforms in the near future. [via Phandroid]
