LG Officially Announces the GW620 Android Phone

LG just officially announced their first Android phone, the LG GW620. We've heard about the LG GW620 before and have even seen it at the IFA tradeshow a week ago, but it's always nice to get official confirmation. The LG GW620 will be available in the fourth quarter of this year in select European markets. The GW620 packs a QWERTY slider keyboard and 3 inch touchscreen--though the press release doesn't specifically mention specs on the camera, we've heard it to be 5 megapixels.

We don't expect any custom UI to be built on top of Android for this device, the LG GW620 will very likely rock the Android you already know and love. Truthfully speaking, we're not even expecting LG to push the GW620 too hard, LG has a deep partnership with Windows Mobile--even in its press release LG makes sure to mention that they have 13 WinMob devices on the way.

Either way, the sheer amount of Android devices on the way has to excite even the most cynical and surprise the most optimistic. What do you guys think?
