The LG Optimus G will finally come out next month, making it six months since the phone premiered in South Korea. Telstra have finally priced the Optimus G while at the same time opening pre-orders.
The smartphone market of 2012 has seen some heated competition. The usual contenders all released solid hardware.

Here's a look at the best new products people put in their pockets this year.
A couple of months ago, we railed against LG for waiting so long to bring out the awesome-looking new Optimus G. It's a 4G-powerhouse that we'll be waiting until early next year to get our hands on. After putting the handset through its paces yesterday, it's worth the wait. Read on to find out who is to blame for the delay. Oooh you'll be right-mad, you will.
LG this week announced that the Optimus G — a 4.7-inch, quad core smartphone with 2GB of RAM and Android Jelly Bean — would go on sale in Korea next week. The manufacturer then announced that Australia would be getting it, too. 'Oh great!', said I. 'When will we get it?', I asked. The answer took me a little by surprise.
LG's LTE-ready Snapdragon S4-toting Optimus G smartphone was only announced yesterday, so it's no surprise that the official word on Australian availability is "we're not saying yet". What's weird is that LG has confirmed that we'll be getting a version with a crappier 8MP camera, rather than the 13MP version announced for elsewhere.
