We all know that the Apple iPhone and the Goggle Nexus One are being compared to each other however, it seems that the former is winning that fight. A new handset has also come on to the market and has its sights squarely set on the both of them, the LG GW990.
The Google and Apple phones are not 4G / LTE ready yet but the upcoming iPhone 4G will be, although both AT&T and Verizon has said that the technology is at least a year away. According to Merinews, the LG GW990 comes with 3.5 HSPA connectivity and is thought to offer LTE support, although this is yet to be confirmed.
The latest smartphone from LG has all the ingredients to do well, a large screen and a powerful processor, but the Korean made handsets always seems to be let down by its user interface. It is no secret that sales have not been as healthy as Google had hoped with the Nexus One, LG are hoping that this will play right in to the hands of its GW990.
The LG handset is larger than the iPhone and first Google-branded phone; this is to accommodate its large 4.8-inch screen. Both the Nexus One and the LG GW990 has a processor with a 1GHz clock speed, which certainly puts the current iPhone 3GS to shame. However, if we are to believe some recent new reports, then the new iPhone 4G will come with a dual-core processor.
The new 2010 iPhone is said to also offer LTE support, so will be ready once AT&T and hopefully Verizon get their networks sorted. LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the next step in mobile radio communications, which you can read more about here.
