LG GW620 Eve QWERTY Android phone discovered

Some in-depth sleuthing of LG's website has thrown up details of an unannounced Android device from the company, the LG GW620.  Tipped to support UMTS/HSDPA and GPRS (though with no sign of which bands it supports), the GW620 also has a QWERTY keyboard and a half-VGA 320 x 480 display that we presume is a touchscreen.

Interestingly, the handset has also been spotted previously by Cellpassion at the WiFi Alliance [pdf link], where it went by the name of the LG Eve.  They had no other details - at the time it was unknown that the Eve was to be an Android device - but its presence on a testing site does indicate that the GW620 may be close to release.

The XML file also confirms which media files are supported, although disappointingly there's no mention of Flash in the Webkit 3.1.2 based browser section.  SyncML support is also listed.
