Juggling personal and business mobile phone accounts can be quite tiring and troublesome, especially if you have to carry around with you more than one device. LG’s Optimus Net appears to solve that problem for you in the form of a budget-friendly Android smartphone with dual-SIM card capabilities, allowing you to swap between mobile phone accounts and carriers at whim.
Now don’t expect anything fancy from the LG Optimus Net – in fact one could almost think of it as superseding the LG Optimus One. With an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM under the hood, a 3.2” HVGA display, a 3.2MP camera, with 512MB of internal memory (comes bundled with a 2GB memory card) and Android’s Gingerbread 2.3 on board, we don’t expect the LG Optimus Net to be breaking the bank any time soon.
The device will also feature a SIM switch key which will replace the search key on the phone, allowing the user to quickly change between the SIM cards. It is expected to cost around $290 and will be debuting in Russia first. It will also debut in Brazil under the LG Optimus Net Dual moniker but no word if there are plans for it to arrive stateside or anywhere else for that matter.
