LG Hoping To Sell More Optimus Ones Using Cricket World Cup Branding

In India (read cricket crazy nation), this new “Limited Edition” LG Optimus One with a Cricket World Cup 2011 engraved on the back will sell like hotcakes. The hardware on the phone wasn’t changed. It still misses the beloved Camera Flash and a D-Pad (more in our detailed review).

Oh did I mention you’ll also get some cricket applications (crap ware) pre-loaded on the phone, which you can’t uninstall without rooting the phone? If you’re cricket crazy and planning to buy an Android, there are only 1000  available across India. Good Luck getting one.

Our recommendation – Thumbs down. This phone is already a few months old now. Wait for the next LG Optimus series phone (There might be a budget LG Optimus series phone too).
