LG Optimus V Valentines Root

The lovers phone, LG Optimus V, the one we'll be getting our hands on very soon indeed, has already received its own root job. This phone is a Virgin Mobile exclusive, is the latest phone in the mid-tier Optimus family, and is apparently very easy to hack into. The method used to root this device is the same one that's worked on previous Optimus machines, notably the Optimus One and Sprint's Optimus S. That method is SuperOneClick.

LG Optimus V – Official Announcement for Valentines Day

The LG Optimus line just got a little bigger with an official announcement of the LG Optimus V, a higher-end-of-entry-level Android phone priced at $149.99 and set to release on Valentines Day through Virgin Mobile. Details available to us now include a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 3G and Wifi capable, 3.2 megapixel camera, video, and we're gonna send out a wild guess and say that it'll have Android 2.2 Froyo. If it's anything like it's brother LG Optimus U, it'll be a nice little phone that zips around fast as you'd expect a phone in this price range to do so. More than likely this phone will end up being free on contract sooner than later.

Take peeks at the oncoming wave of superphones coming out more than likely in the middle of next month at Mobile World Congress, see the phones that never will be (Sony much?), and get some sassy updates for the phones you've already got. A couple of Froyos if I remember right. Oh and the CEO of Google is stepping down. No big deal!

LG Optimus U Review

Take a look with us at this simple, cheap (free if you buy it now and turn in your rebate,) and overall cute and lovely little smartphone as we take it for a spin and check out what's under the hood. First behold the unboxing then see as this cool tiny man running Android 2.2 Froyo with its 3.2" capacitive touch screen acts like a bigger phone, runs like a higher grade phone (for the most part), but works simple like the inexpensive phone that it is. LG Optimus U is carried by U.S. Cellular and comes in blue.
