LG introduced a budget Android smartphone, the LG Pecan, a small sized candybar device that should be affordable but placed in the mod to low range of smartphones.
The Pecan features a HVGA (480 x 320) screen, four Android capacitive buttons for Menu, Home, Back and Search in addition to dedicated hardware buttons for Call Start and Call End. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo and has a 3-megapixel camera at the back. Other features include 3G HSDPA radio, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM radio and a battery which will allow for as much as 14 days of standby and 5 hours of talking time.
Pricing is yet unknown but it will be available with Orange UK’s Pay as you go program and we might see it at the Mobile World Congress next week.
