LG Optimus One and Chic to claim budget space

LG as promised provided details of its two less expensive Android phones, the Optimus Chic and Optimus One. Both have 3.2-inch, 480x320 capacitive touchscreens and a modest 600MHz processor along with the usual 7.2Mbps 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. The two run skinned versions of Android 2.2 and have distinctive tricks; the Chic has DLNA media sharing and PC connections to both sync contacts wirelessly and even remotely control the phone, while the One has an App Advisor that recommends new apps every two weeks.

The Chic is the more advanced of the two with a five-megapixel camera, a 2GB microSD card and touch-sensitive navigation buttons; video recording is limited to 640x480, 30FPS video. LG imagines the One as an entry phone with a three-megapixel camera and video capture throttle back to 18FPS.

Costs for the phones aren't available, but LG plans a very wide launch for at least the Optimus One with over 90 countries getting access; most of Europe will see it in October. The Chic follows in November and should cover at least Europe and the Asia-Pacific area. The company often exports its phones to North America but didn't mention plans today.
