LG GW990: first Moorestown smartphone gets official, runs Moblin

Loyal readers will already know all about the LG GW990. A Moorestown device we first showed the world from the floor of CES yesterday. It's now official, it runs Moblin, and it's launching in the second half of this year.

In case you missed it the first time around, the GW990 brings Intel's power sipping Moorestown CPU (compared to its current generation of CPUs), a 4.8-inch panoramic widescreen display, HD Video, 3D gaming, aGPS, WiFi, 1850mAh battery, digital compass, HSPA radio, and 5 megapixel camera. As you can see above, that display splits into 3 vertical panels when held in landscape mode giving you independent control over each. Much to look forward to here. Hands-on as soon as we can get it. Until then, another pic after the break.
