CTIA Fall 2010
The LG Optimus S was the first Android phone that Sprint launched that caught my eye. The phone is a slim and small touchscreen device. It feels very fit and polished in the hand, more like a small HTC Android phone than anything I've used from LG. Sprint was showing off the striking purple model of this phone, which won't launch for a few weeks after the initial black model.
The Optimus S stands out from the new Android pack because it's the only new phone running Froyo. The other two phones are running Android 2.1, Eclair. The phone was very responsive in the few moments I had to get my hands on it. The interface seemed fast enough, and the screen was nice and responsive.
