I myself own the mid range Android smartphone from LG aka Optimus One.It’s one awesome Android phone with decent specs featuring a 600mhz processor with mine updated to 2.3 gingerbread and clocked at 680Mhz.LG has revealed a new successor to Optimus one and has named it Optimus Hub.Previously it was called as Univa which was a budget Android gingerbread phone but now its called Optimus Hub and it’s coming out this October for just 200 Euros($275).
It’ll run Android 2.3.4, have a 3.5 inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and a brightness of 550 nits, 800 MHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, and your typical 3G/WiFi/GPS radios.I feel the pricing is awesome and would sell more like the one it sold from LG Optimus one.Most people would prefer to go with a used Samsung Galaxy S than the one from LG as Samsung’s screen is so superb comparative to LG one but no regrets for me.
That being said, there’s a strong possibility that the Optimus Hub will end up on American shores this holiday season on several prepaid operators. It may even be offered for free on a postpaid contract. It’ll have to compete with the $300 Motorola Triumph on Virgin Mobile, which has a faster processor and a better screen. That 200 Euro price tag translates to about $275, which makes it cheap enough to buy unsubsidized and just shove your own SIM card inside. For $60 per month you’ll get unlimited everything if you sign up with either H2O Wireless or Simple Mobile, the former uses AT&T’s network, the latter uses T-Mobile’s. Depending on which 3G networks the American Optimus Hub supports, you should choose the appropriate network.I might sell of my Optimus for this one.Are you buying one ?
