LG unveiled its first smartphone based on Google's Android platform on Monday. The LG-GW620 is full touchscreen device with a slide-out keyboard, very similar in form factor to the HTC Touch Pro2. While LG makes nice hardware, the big challenge here still rests with Android, which continues to trail other touchscreen smartphones in the market.
