Itching to get your hands on some dual core processor powered smartphones? Well, you have several options this year, we have the Motorola Atrix, Samsung Galaxy S II, and the LG Optimus 2x, all to be available this year. The Motorola Atrix is already available in the US but as you know, it's locked to AT&T and you really can't use it here.
There's no word as to when the Galaxy S II will be available, with rumors saying it will be around April. The LG Optimus 2x on the other hand, the first smartphone to be announced as having a dual core processor, is available for you to pre-order right now over at Expansys.com and will be coming March 21st so hopefully, it would be the first smartphone with dual core processor to be available in UK soil. Price is set at £449.99. Don't have the much money to spend on a sim-free phone? Don't worry, Expansys has the Optimus 2x available for free on contract with 3, T-Mobile, or Vodafone.
To refresh, the LG Optimus 2x sports a dual core 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, 512MB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera with the ability to shoot 1080p vidoes, 4 inch screen, and an HDMI port. You can head on over to Expansys to pre-order one today.
