LG Optimus One in Malaysia at RM899

The LG Optimus One appears quietly in Malaysia via TheStar’s TechCentral. They had a simple review titled “A Droid on a budget” that gave a quick insight on what the Optimus One had to offer. What’s important is that the listed price was mentioned as RM899 which is well priced for a Froyo device in Malaysia. The specs are quite similar to the HTC Legend/Aria as it features a 600MHz processor and a 3.2″ HVGA (320×240) (320×480) display. When it comes to pricing, the LG Optimus One is about half the price of the HTC Legend/Aria.

Earlier we had a tip that the LG Optimus One will be coming sometime next week with Celcom rumoured being the exclusive telco. With this new discovery we are now more convinced that this is more than just a rumour. The Windows Phone 7 sibling, the LG Optimus 7 was also mentioned to be released sometime next week. Let’s wait and see if Celcom offers their contract pricing in the next few days.
