Metro PCS goes with LG Optimus One as their first Android phone

LG is continuing their rollout of their Optimus One line with the introduction of the LG Optimus M for Metro PCS. Like all the other Optimus One handsets, the Optimus M will feature Android 2.2, 3.2 inch capacitive HVGA display, 3MP camera, 600 MHz processor, and all the usuals like GPS, Bluetooth 2.0, and WiFi.

Metro PCS will launch the LG Optimus M on Wednesday, November 24th for $229 with a no-contract $50 service plan which includes unlimited talk, text, and web service on their CDMA network.

While the LG Optimus M may not be on the top of your Christmas wish list, it seems LG is one of the only manufacturers to realize that current generation Android phones should be released with the current version of Android. The strategy seems to be paying off since LG reported over 1 million units were sold during the first 40 days.

Let’s hope LG can step things up early next year with Gingerbread powered handsets and some specs to rival Motorola and HTC’s latest offerings.
