LG’s Tegra 2 Optimus 2X official: due from Jan 2011

The LG Optimus 2X has been made official, with LG promising that the Tegra 2 based Android smartphone will arrive in Korea come January 2011, and then "countries in Europe and Asia to follow." As well as NVIDIA's dual-core 1GHz mobile CPU, the Optimus 2X has a 4-inch WVGA display, 8GB of onboard storage and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. Up front there's a 1.3-megapixel camera for stills and video calls, while an HDMI port allows you to hook the Optimus 2X up to your HDTV. Handy, considering NVIDIA's Tegra 2 is capable of 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 playback and recording. One minor blip is that the LG Optimus 2X will run Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, with LG only promising a 2.3 Gingerbread update at some point in the near future. No word on pricing. Press Release:
