LG GW620 Eve QWERTY Android phone discovered

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.
