So the last time we heard from an LG android smartphone it was when the LG GW620, aka Eve made it to the Great White North. Now, the second Android smartphone from LG has been officially launched, and it is called LG GW880 Amundsen.

China Mobile is the first to get this smartphone running Android from LG. But unlike the LG GW620, the GW880 doesn't have a keyboard, it comes with a nice big touchscreen of 3.5inch (800 x 480). Talking abot the screen, it seems you can fit many icons on the homescreen ala iPhone.

It also has Chinese-spec TD-SCDMA 3G connectivity, along with Bluetooth, a 5-megapixel camera and GPS. There's no mention of WiFi on this phone but it comes with CMMB (China Multi Media Broadcasting) TV tuner for mobile entertainment. Price is unclear at this moment and LG has not mention about releasing this Android phone in other parts of the world.
