official debut in the warm Catalan sun, LG has confirmed that the Optimus L3 will be hitting European shelves this month, making it the first L-style phone out of the gate. After Europe, the dual-core 800MHz slice of Gingerbread will leave a crumbly trail eastwards, landing in Russia, then Asia. The official PR stops short of telling us if it'll go full-circle and arrive on US shores, simply teasing budget phone-seeking Americans with "followed by other markets around the world."
Update: LG has issued a clarification regarding the specs of the device which we've corrected in the PR after the break. Original release stated that the phone had 2GB RAM, while in truth it has only 384MB, but does have 1GB of storage available for media and other files.
