LG Optimus Black out next week

The oh-so-sexy-slim smartphone is set to reach UK shores as early as May 14

The sleek, slim LG Optimus Black smartphone has managed to slip past major hype and position itself in UK shops ready for sales from next week. The 1GHz processor and Android 2.2 don’t match its big Optimus 2X brother but it will be compatible for a Gingerbread 2.3 update and is a lot thinner – not a bad trade. The 4-inch NOVA display is just a great bonus. Carriers and pricing are yet to be revealed.
