LG’s GW620 is officially a 5MP Android handset!

Chris over at Engadget is reporting that the above pictured GW620 will — at some point — hit mobile operator shelves.

It’s rather exciting — this is LG’s first Android handset. Chris points out that the device looks to be very ‘bone-stock Android build’ at the moment — no mention of the whizzy S-Class LG interface. I don’t think that’s a bad thing though. I’ve always thoroughly admired the LG hardware but found the UIs ridiculous. I was encouraged by the launch of the S-Class whizzy interface but my basic issue is extensibility for the consumer.

I wonder which operators will swoop up the GW620? I’ve been hunting for an Android device with a decent QWERTY keyboard so I’ll definitely try the LG one out.
