Considering LG's InTouch Max GW620 is its first foray into the Android arena, it made a pretty quiet entrance back at IFA in September. Back then however, it went by a catchier moniker - Etna - and didn't require you to take a deep breath before uttering it. But we've managed to grab one for a video review.

By packing Android 1.5, it's clear the InTouch Max isn't trying to compete with the Android big boys, like the Milestone or Google's Nexus One.

Instead it offers a 3-inch resistive touchscreen and a slide-out keyboard encased in a pocketable design, with a huge emphasis on social networking. Its Face-to-Action feature allows you touch a friend's face that has been synced with a contact your phone book, to be presented with the option to give them or call or share the snap online.

LG's other service is a socially connected address book, otherwise known as Linkbook. This feature allows you to go directly to your friend's social networking profile, or pull up their complete history - social netwoking, text messages, phone calls, the lot.

If you want an Android smartphone that's easy to use and with an affordable price tag, the InTouch Max might be worth considering. But don't just take our word for it, see it in action for yourself in our video review. Or why read our review?
