Android's worldwide share is set to receive another big boost, thanks to the adoption of LG's new GW880 smartphone (Akihabara) by China Mobile. With more than half a billion active customers, China Mobile is the world's largest carrier by a substantial margin. That means a whole hell of a lot of potential customers for both LG, and the Android OS as a whole. The GW880 is a fairly high-end smartphone, especially considering the state of most Chinese smartphones. It's got a respectable 3.5" touchscreen, GPS, Bluetooth, and a 5 MP camera. It'll also pack a mobile TV tuner, and have access to a (China Mobile) app store. No price information exists yet, but if LG is smart it will undercut the extremely expensive Chinese iPhone by a substantial amount.
