at Mobile World Congress, the 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 mightthe Acer instead.
