Europeans may get a taste of the first dual-core processor smartphone before Americans, as LG announced that its Optimus 2X, will be coming to Europe in January. Which European countries will see the release, however, remains a mystery.
LG made the announcement yesterday while unveiling its collaboration with Ennio Morricone; the Optimus 2X will come pre-loaded with 25 music tracks and ringtones from a musician best known for music soundtracks.
The Optimus 2X will reportedly not be seeing a stateside release until sometime in March, and judging from unconfirmed reports, it will initially be available to T-Mobile customers.
