It’s an Android week alright, with LG’s first Android smartphone, the LG GW620, getting its own mini-site. The page appears to be a work in progress, with form text rather than any actual press copy, but there are two video demos – which you can see after the cut – plenty of stock photos, and both the user manual and specification sheet for download.

The latter confirms that the GW620 will be a dualband UMTS (900/2100) quadband GSM device, with both WiFi and Bluetooth, measuring 109 x 54.5 x 15.9 mm and tipping the scales at 139g. It has either 2GB or 4GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot, and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash.
The touchscreen is a 3-inch HVGA resistive panel, while the OS is Android 1.5 Cupcake with LG’s own S-Class UI on top. There’ll also be LG’s “SNS Manager” (Social Networking Service) which ties Facebook, Twitter and other networks into the Contacts app, together with facial recognition that automatically spots people in photos and links those shots to the individual’s Contact entry. LG have previously said that the GW620 will arrive in “select European markets” before the end of 2009.
