Our friends over at mobilesyrup have announced another Rogers Android Device leak, this time is the Android LG GT-540 Optimus (device beside it a LG Neon 2).The LG GT-540 is a device that first debuted at the CITA earlier this year and has been released in Europe and Asia until now.The phone has a 3-inch screen, 3.15 megapixel camera, up to 32GB microSD slot, stereo FM radio playback, and media playback that supports MP4, DivX,H.264/H.263/WMV.Intials reports on this phone are that this device will come with Android 2.0 but we believe it will have Android 2.1.No word on pricing as of yet or official release date but we expect it to see early this fall possibly September.

Rogers certainly will have the most Android devices of all Canadian Carriers in their handset selection but have made some interesting choices this year in the devices they have chosen to carry.Earlier this week they released the SE Xperia X10 Mini and report come out this week that they also will be releasing the Motorola Flipout in August. Earlier in the year they launched the SE Xperia X10 and the Acer Liquid E and look to continue their parade of mid-level Android devices with the LG GT-540 Optimus.The only high-end android device rogers is planed to release this year is Samsung Galaxy S.Below are some more Pictures of The LG GT540 Optimus.

What do you think of the Rogers Android Line-Up?
