LG Mini and GT540 to hit Australia in 2010
At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, LG detailed plans to launch two new phones in the Australian market in 2010 — the LG Mini (GD880) and the LG GT540 (pictured).
The GT540 will be LG's first Android handset released in Australia. It's targeted at consumers who are buying their first smartphone, so it’s not a high-end device.
The GT540 runs the 1.9 version of Android, has a resistive touch screen and is targeted at a ”youth orientated audience.” It may be sold as a prepaid mobile phone.

The LG Mini runs an updated version of LG’s S-Class user interface, so it's technically not defined as a smartphone.
The LG Mini has “a number of smartphone-like features,” including multitouch technology and a variety of social connectivity features. Like a number of other smartphones seen at MWC, it follows the trend of merging social networking contacts into a single, easy to use system.
The the LG Mini (GD880) should be available in Australia in April or May.
