What up, G? LG Optimus G finally goes on sale in the UK

Too late to matter?
The elusive LG Optimus G Android handset has finally gone on sale in the UK, through independent retailer Expansys.
However, it seems the company's icy attitude towards Blighty may be melting with the 1.5GHz quad-core, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device available now for the SIM-free price of £469.
The Optimus G is 4G-ready, meaning 4GEE subscribers will be able to harness next-gen speeds, meaning faster uploads of shots taken with the Optimus G's 13-megapixel camera.
However, it's questionable just how much interest the device will generate at this stage, given how the Android stakes have been raised in recent months.
LG itself also announced the Optimus G Pro handset at MWC in February, which offers a 5.5-inch, full HD display and a faster 1.7GHz processor, so this device is already a generation old.
Hopefully, now the spectrum auction is out of the way and universal 4G coverage is in the pipeline, LG will be a little more prompt with its big UK launches. Otherwise it risks becoming obsolete on these shores.
