LG Optimus Black. Available from Orange this week

You may have seen news of the LG Optimus Black floating around the web this past week. It’s interesting and, for the most part, completely wrong. A UK network has already been announced, back in February in fact. They’ll end up in stores this week and we’ll have deals online soon.

The handset promises an increased battery life, two cameras (5 megapixel camera at the rear, 2 megapixel at the front), 1GHz CPU and measures in at just 9.2mm thick.
