Motorola Atrix 4G, LG Optimus 2X, HTC ThunderBolt - am I missing any? With massive speeds from dual-core Tegra 2 processors, gigantic cameras, and "most powerful" tags being thrown around, what ground is left for the Galaxy S 4G? Why, the middle ground of course. That special place for people that've had an Android phone before but don't quite want to shell out $300 to $600 for a superphone that they won't know what to do with anyway. That place where customers want it to go fast, they want it to work, and they want it to look basically sort of nice on the outside. This is Galaxy S 4G range.
previous dump of wallpapers (from Android 3.0 Honeycomb) has come back to deliver a package containing not only the static wallpapers from the new LG Optimus 2X APK, but some ringtones and other sounds as well as a few live wallpapers. Wonderful!
Expansys has put the LG Optimus 2X up for pre-order, with the Tegra 2 powered Android smartphone expected to arrive on February 21 2011. Priced at £499.99 ($779) SIM-free and unlocked, the Optimus 2X runs Android 2.2 on the NVIDIA dual-core 1GHz chip and has a 4-inch display and 8-megapixel camera. There's also an HDMI port and support for 1080p HD recording and playback. More on the Optimus 2X in our hands-on over at SlashGear. LG Optimus 2X hands-on: [vms e2df9b6c000b75b5da10]
Optimus 2X smartphone ever since we first saw it leak out, and the fact that Motorola has since announced the ATRIX 4G doesn't dampen our enthusiasm. Over at SlashGear, Vince has grabbed some hands-on time with the Optimus 2X courtesy of NVIDIA, and managed to put it through its paces and even compare the Android handset to the DROID X. First impressions of the hardware seem good, though there are still questions over how well Android 2.2 - which the Optimus 2X will launch with internationally - handles the NVIDIA dual-core processor.

Korean video comparing the browser performance of the iPhone 4 and the LG Optimus 2X has emerged, and although it's not exactly scientific, the Android smartphone does seem to render faster than its Apple rival. The Tegra 2 smartphone is expected to make its debut at CES 2011 this week. Apple's mobile internet experience has become the de-facto standard by which smartphone browsers are judged, for many users, so this strong performance by the Optimus 2X leaves us hopeful. Still, without knowing the background to the test - such as what connection each phone was using, whether pages had been cached, or other details - it's hard to draw any more comprehensive conclusions.
