LG told us that its latest announced Optimus 2X android phone — world’s first dual-core machine that can make calls using a cellular network – will launch first of all in Korea sometime in Jan ’11. But heck that, we already spotted a website — a Swedish one, mind you! — selling this two cores 1Ghz nVidia Tegra 2 powerhouse even before Christmas, in fact right now as we discuss it with you. If it was a local deal or anything easily reachable to us, we surely wanted to rub our credit card for this one, but as you would suspect it for what and how it is, so do we.
If you still wanna judge it from the pricing perspective, this thing is selling unlocked for 4999 kronor, which figures out to be US$ 731. As for the carrier (whichever) bound cost, it does drop a little bit to 3099 kronors, that is, US$ 451.16.
