LG Optimus Net debuts on O2 in the UK

February 15th, 2012

LG Optimus NetThe LG Optimus Net, which was given the official nod way back in July last year, has finally launched here in the UK.

The budget handset has made its debut on the O2 network, where it’s available on price-plans starting from £10.50 per month. However, to get a decent amount of minutes and texts you’ll need to bump this up to a £27 tariff, which will equip your free Optimus Net smartphone with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data.

Alternatively, you can pick the phone up for a much-more reasonable £129.99 on pay as you go, when purchased with the mandatory £10 top-up.

The LG Optimus Net is the spiritual successor to LG‘s best-selling Optimus One smartphone, and improves on its brother with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. This, paired with LG’s Optimus UI, will dress the phone’s decent 3.2-inch 320 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, which comes powered by a reasonable 800MHz chipset.

Other features include a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera, DLNA media sharing capabilities, a built-in music player with FM radio, HSDPA and WiFi internet connectivity and up to 32GB of built-in memory.
