LG's Bringing a Cricket World Cup Edition Optimus One

It’s one of those events that come in four years, again. No we’re not talking about the 29th of February, the focus is rather on the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 being held in our very own sub-continent. LG wants to turn the World Cup fever a notch higher, so they have some World Cup limited edition Optimus One smartphones up for grabs.

We liked the Optimus One , which apart from some negligible shortcomings, was a great entry-level Android smartphone. So if you’re looking to buy one of these, you may as well get the World Cup edition which has the official ICC logo etched on the back panel, as you see in the picture below.
