LG Optimus Hub launches

Around nine months back, LG offered Android on a budget with the LG optimus One. Despite its price (or perhaps, because of that price), it got a decent rating off us in test too. Sadly for the Optimus One, time moves on, with a new kind on the block set to take its place - the LG Optimus Hub.

The phone is scheduled for Europe next month, initially for the Italian market. Although if it is indeed the successor to the Optimus One, it's likely to hit the UK around the same time or soon after. Good news if you want an Android phone, but don't want to pay out big for features you might not actually want or need.

Not that the Optimus Hub is a phone to ignore. On the face of it, the Hub is a decent handset for the cash. According to Engadget, we're talking Android 2.3.4 for the operating system, with the Hub also offering an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with VGA video shooting, 3G, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, along with GPS for location-based services and DLNA for networking.

We're not pretending its a world beater for obvious reasons (it isn't). But for the money, it looks pretty decent. In Italy, that money is 150 Euros sim-free, which works out at around £130 at today's exchange rate.
