LG Optimus One Android handset hits 1 million sales mark

Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

LG’s Optimus One Android handset is proving very popular. After just 40 days on the market it’s already managed to rack up 1 million worldwide sales, making it LG’s fastest selling smartphone ever.

Whilst its mid-range Froyo OS stylings are solid, it’s not as flashy as some of the higher-end offerings by rivals such as HTC. Its competitive pricing seems the biggest draw right now, costing around just £180 SIM-free.

“The versatile, powerful LG Optimus One was designed to provide an easy transition into the world of smartphones and as these numbers demonstrate, there is obviously a strong demand for this type of device,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“Optimus One seems to be what many customers were waiting for, proving that smartphones aren’t just for early adopters anymore.”
