LG is to enter the Android market but not via a shiny, new mobile phone design. The company has decided to play it rather cautious by adapting one of its current range of handsets as the recipient of the market entry.
The KS360, a low cost phone which features a full QWERTY keyboard, will hold the Android operating system and will be released (or, rather, re-released) during Summer of this year in the UK. A price has yet to be announced.
Apparently, the specifications of the Android variant of the KS360 will remain the same and will not undergo a Prada-like change in technology, keeping with its QWERTY keyboard and 2MP camera.
LG will follow with two further Android handset later in the Summer months. Marketing Manager Jeremy Newing told T3, that, "This year is all about social networking," said Newing, "and Android obviously opens a world of possibilities."
