Recently unveiled Andro-1 handset

UK mobile phone users may be anticipating trading in their handsets and upgrading to a new LG Android device which has launched in the manufacturer's home market of South Korea.

Mobile phones powered by the Google-designed operating system are becoming increasingly popular, with a number of new releases announced so far this year.

The recently unveiled Andro-1 handset by LG is the company's first smartphone to run on the Android operating system. The phone comes equipped with a 3-inch HVGA full touch screen with 320*480 resolution, a full qwerty keyboard, GPS, HSDPA/HSUPA, a 5M camera, an external memory slot expandable up to 32GB, Bluetooth, mp3 player, 1,500mAh battery pack. According to LG the handset has been designed with web browsing in mind.

The South Korean phone manufacturer has recognised the need to increase marketing expenditures in order to promote sales of inexpensive smart phones. LG and Samsung currently control 30% of the global handset market share.

Samsung announced last month that it plans to increase smartphones sales in 2010 two-fold.

LG mobile phone sales target for this year is 140 million, an increase from last year’s sales of 117 million handsets.

Consumers interested in selling their phones and using the cash to go towards purchasing a device compatible with the increasingly popular Android operating system will now be able to take into consideration Motorola, Samsung, HTC and Google handsets.
