LG Unveils Optimus Q2 QWERTY Slider

LG has just launched its new Optimus Q2, an Android 2.3-based smartphone with a slide-out, full QWERTY keyboard. The smartphone is a follow up to the LU2300 QWERTY slider released last year.
Powered by a 1.2GHz Tegra 2 processor, the features include a five mega-pixel rear camera and VGA front-facing shooter for video chat and a four-inch IPS-based LCD with 700 nits of brightness. The device will also be a tenth of an inch thinner and lighter than the previous LU2300.
The device is set to launch in Korea and Europe later this week at an unknown price and plans for a wider release are yet to be confirmed.
