LG announces waterproof Optimus GJ in Taiwan

LG announced a new waterproof phone today, the Optimus GJ. They certainly weren't very subtle either, as they had girls presenting the phone in bikinis. It differs from past waterproof devices because this one is high-end. The specs are as follows:

  • 4.7-inch IPA HD display
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 13MP rear-camera
  • 1.5GHz quad-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal memory
  • MicroSD slot
  • 2,280 mAh battery

LG is getting more ambitious with their waterproof devices and are hitting the Taiwanese market first. It will cost $17,990 Taiwanese dollars, which is approximately $600 USD.  No word yet on when or if the Optimus GJ will go to other markets.
