Right now, there’s a million Optimus one out there. And to add to the sweet gold medallion, is that LG only did it under 40 days and the phone hasn’t even reach Verizon (18th November) yet nor does it reach the rest of the world yet. LG got it right after all. A solid phone that’s not high-end but has enough features to experience full Android. See the full press release below.

Popular Android 2.2 Smartphone Sets Company Sales Record in Just Over One Month

SEOUL, Nov. 16, 2010 – LG Electronics (LG) today announced that worldwide sales of its Optimus One smartphone have hit one million units just 40 days after the phone’s initial launch.

One of the first smartphones to launch with Google’s latest operating system, the Optimus One allows for up to three times faster internet browsing, web-page loading, and multi-tasking. The Optimus One also incorporates a unique LG-designed user-interface (UI) along with a camera that features face tracking and smile shot, a 3.2″ wide  screen and a long-lasting 1500mAh capacity battery.
