SAN FRANCISCO--LG has just announced the LG Optimus T, which it bills as a handset for first-time smartphone users. It looks a lot like the Optimus One that was announced for Europe last month.

The Optimus T ships with Android 2.2, and features "Voice Actions for Android," which lets you control the phone just by speaking--you can send texts, listen to music, call contacts, search Google, get directions, and surf the Web just with voice controls. The Optimus T has a 3.2-inch glass touch screen, a soft touch finish on the back, a 600MHz processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a virtual QWERTY keyboard with Swype, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and it ships with a 2GB microSD card, though it supports up to 32GB cards.

The LG Optimus T will be available from T-Mobile, though pricing and availability is still unknown at this time. T-Mobile has said it will be available in time for the holiday season, and you can get it in either burgundy or titanium colors.
