LG Optimus 2X now available for pre-order in Europe

It looks like the Optimus 2X, LG's dual-core Tegra 2-powered monster will soon be landing in Europe. UK-based online retailer Expansys is currently taking pre-orders for the device for £499.99 ($800), and is also offering it for free with a number of contracts with UK carrier Vodafone. According to Expansys, the Optimus 2X will arrive in the UK on March 21.

Elsewhere in Europe, Danish store Ellos has the Optimus 2X available for pre-order for 3599 DKK ($650), and expects to ship February 25. There's still confusion over when the phone will launch stateside on T-Mobile USA, though a possible March release has been rumored. [Expansys, Ellos]

  • The girls come with the phone :D
  • Sucky sucky 5 dollar.
  • I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it had 720p LCD. 800x480 is so last year.
  • It has 1080p video recording
  • Those girls look like they are 12yrs old!
  • I think its legal to bang them at that age over there lol.
  • But hey, if they are legal age, then WTF!
  • I see Google on it, but the phones coming to VZW are Binged up as far as I can tell.
  • Hoping it comes to t-mobile...no dual core phones announced for t-mo at CES AFAIK...
  • Beautiful LG powered android phones + beautiful women = Great Combination with a big smile on my face. I'm interested to see what LG brings to the table this year with Sprint.
  • Those chicks don't look European.
  • You can say that again....
  • Ahhh lurrrrvly due for an upgrade on the 10th of Feb! Perfect timing.... will be getting this and rooting it to hell and back ASAP!

  • hi,
    the problem we have we all in Europe(Sweden) get different delivery days from different suppliers which is frustrating. There are a lot of people that are hungry for it, but I think that if it takes too long time for LG to supply it,the more oppurtunities will come up and that's bad for LG....
