LG beats own chest with 1m Optimus LTE sales

LG Electronics on Wednesday revealed that its Optimus LTE handsets have sold more than one million units. The Android 2.3 device, touted by its maker as the first that combines an HD touchscreen with LTE for 4G, is sold in Canada, Japan, South Korea, and the US, sometimes under different names. The device sold 600,000 in its first three months on the market in Korea after its October launch last year.

On its first day, 8,500 units found homes. Such achievements are far smaller than for a device like Apple's iPhone or for Samsung's Galaxy series, but LG also had a relatively limited rollout.

The phone's major specs include a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, a 4.5-inch, 1280x720 IPS display, and an eight-megapixel rear camera along with a front camera.

In the US, the device recently arrived at Verizon as the Spectrum, priced at $200 on a two-year contract. AT&T already has it as the Nitro HD.
