Though it was announced way back in February at Mobile World Congress, the LG GT540 has finally made its way to North America. Canada's Rogers Wireless is now offering the entry-level, Android 1.6-powered device for as little $30 Canadian (about $28 U.S.) with a three-year service agreement. The LG phone, released as the "Loop," features a 3-inch touch screen, a 3-megapixel camera, and a 2GB microSD memory card. Other details include support for Wi-Fi, GPS, and memory expandability up to 32GB.

Though the phone is being released with a rather antiquated version of Android, LG is already promising a 2.1 update in the future. For those of you who are making the jump from a feature phone to a smartphone, the Loop is a good one. However, if you are looking for a superphone and want to stick with Rogers, I might suggest the Acer Liquid E instead.
