LG takes Gingerbread-sporting Optimus Net and Pro out of the oven
Gingerbread is not just for the high-end folks -- even the entry-level guys need a little rhizome flavored love now and again. LG understands that, and it's why the company is introducing a pair devices to its Optimus line dubbed the Net and Pro. The Optimus Pro, just like its similarly monikered Droid Pro, is a candybar QWERTY device with a 2.8-inch touchscreen. The Pro comes in a trio of color options, including something called "titan." The Net, on the other hand, is a fully touchscreen affair (though, the North American version may sport a sliding QWERTY pad), with a 3.2-inch 320 x 480 display. LG is pushing its Social+ widgets that put Twitter and Facebook on your homescreen -- something we all know others have had tons of success with. Both devices pack a 1500mAh battery and an 800 MHz CPU, which should be enough for less demanding smartphone users. They'll be rolling out this summer starting in Europe. One more pic and some PR await after the break.
