LG Optimus 2X pre-orders taken for Feb 21 release

LG's Optimus 2X Android 2.2 smartphone has gone up for pre-order via UK retailer Expansys, which is promising that the Tegra 2 powered superphone is expected to arrive on February 21 2011. Priced at £499.99 ($779) unlocked and SIM-free, the Optimus 2X has a 4-inch display and an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p HD video recording.

There's also an HDMI port for playing back 1080p HD video, together with 3G and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. Internal storage is 8GB, but there's a microSDHC card slot to augment that. No word from LG on when the Froyo OS will be updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though the company has said that an update is planned.

More on the LG Optimus 2X in our hands-on report from CES 2011 last week.
