New Optimus 2 Tips Up on LG's Website Sporting Old Specs

LG's giving its Optimus smartphone a second act. Simply enough, it's called the Optimus 2, the details of which are now available on LG's website, along with a photo gallery. What you'll find if you surf on over is a mostly entry-level smartphone device, at least by today's standards, with what could be an unmolested version of Google's Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform running the show.

Tech specs include:
  • 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen (320x480)
  • 800MHz processor
  • 3.2MP rear-facing camera
  • Virtual QWERTY keyboard
  • Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR
  • 2GB microSD card included (supports up to 32GB)
  • GPS

The Optimus 2 also sports a 1,500 mAh battery LG claims is good for up to 5 hours of talk time and/or or up to 7 days of standby. No word on when it will be available or for how much, though we suspect that information will be made available at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week.
