Optimus Pro C660, Preview Of LG's First Touch Phone
Phones that feature touch and type displays are not a new thing in the mobile market. Many manufacturers have adopted this strategy and have found immense success with such models. The main reason for this outstanding popularity is that such phones have both the sophisticated appeal of a touch screen based phone as well as the utility and ease of use normally provided by phones that come equipped with a physical keypad.


Every mobile user would like to type in texts from a physical keyboard rather than using the usually messed up onscreen digital keypad. However they would love to explore applications and scroll through the menu tabs and buttons just by touching them on screen rather than having to use the hard joystick like control panels on the phones physical keypad.

Thus when a phone combines both of these it is guaranteed to be a head turner in the market. LG like many other manufacturers has cashed in on this new concept and has brought to light its first Touch and Type phone christened LG Optimus Pro C660.

LG Optimus Pro is a rather tentatively designed phone with a rugged look. The phone has a 2.8 inch capacitive touch screen based display that is well suited for providing a fairly good treat for your eyes.

Optimus Pro C660 is powered by a powerful 800 MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 processor that is coupled with a 512 MB RAM. The phone will thus offer lightning quick performances over a large duration of time and will make multi tasking very easy.

LG Optimus Pro will be expected to pose a major challenge to similarly priced phones from Nokia, Samsung and Motorola and as such it is packed with a long list of interesting specs. These include support for various multimedia and entertainment specs. The phone has playback support for music and videos in a variety of formats besides offering and FM radio and 3.5 mm universal audio jack sound connectivity.


The phone comes out with a VGA camera at its rear. It does not have a secondary camera for allowing video call facility.

The phone also spots lots of modern day connectivity options like Bluetooth, USB PC Sync and also comes equipped with Wi-Fi internet connectivity. The phone has 2G and 3G internet connectivity.

The notable LG Optimus Pro features are;

  • Android Gingerbread OS
  • 3G
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Expandable memory of 32GB
  • 3 Mega Pixel camera
  • Java

LG Optimus Pro C660 is expected to be priced around Rs 13000 and is expected to hit Indian markets by the end of 2011.
