Here's a look at the LG Eve -- aka the GW620 -- which was announced last fall and later released in the U.K. but is nary to be seen here in the states. Specs include a 3-inch HVGA touchscreen and horizontal sliding QWERTY keyboard. It also sports a 5-megapixel camera and FM radio, all powered Android 1.5 with by a Qualcomm MSM7200a processor running at 528MHz. It's by no means a top-of-the-line Android phone at this point, but the keyboard felt pretty usable. So it has that going for it, which is nice.

Hands-on with the LG Eve (GW620) [#io2010]


Android 1.5? What is the purpose of LG producing this phone? Seriously, is it THAT difficult for them to build a phone with at least Android 2.1 incorporated into it?

Most likely the device was developed with 1.5 in mind. LG didn't know that Android would spit out 2 new OS in one year well three if you count froyo.
