LG Optimus One may be headed to Verizon as the Vortex

It was just a week ago that LG announced the Optimus One and the Optimus Chic, and it looks like the former might be headed to Verizon as the Vortex.

That's according to this image handed to the Droid Guy. The picture doesn't give much away, but the rumored specs are a 3.2-inch touchscreen and a 600 MHz processor (and the usual sundries you'd expect on any phone these days). So that'd make it mid-level phone, along the lines of the Optimus One.

So that's that. It's good to see at least one more player in the U.S. market, but we'd still much rather see one of its high-end phones, like the Optimus Chic, or the Optimus Z, which we reviewed previously.

But we'll take what we can get, we reckon, and just keep our fingers crossed that something untoward doesn't happen to what may be an otherwise decent mid-level Android phone. [The Droid Guy] Thanks, Paul.
