LG made the bold leap to Android 2.0 with the low-to midrange GT540 it's showing this week, turning up the style dial a couple notches in a handful of colors (white, pink, dark gray, and black) with stylized wavy backs, chrome accents, and rounded edges. The UI's very standard with only minor tweaks, including a few custom LG apps; we couldn't get much information on it since it's a Euro-only release and the booth's being staffed primarily by the company's US team, but we can see that it's got a 3 megapixel cam, a 3.5mm jack, and a mix of touch-sensitive and physical buttons down below. We couldn't verify what kind of processor this thing has on board, but the UI speed certainly didn't blow us away -- if we had to guess, it's probably the same core that you'll find in the GW620 Eve. Follow the break for a quick hands-on video.
