After almost two years of struggle and hard work, LG has finally made its stand into the market of cellphones with the 3D LG Optimus.

Not much surprisingly, with many features like quad band GSM support, GPS, smart calling, SRS sound, LG Optimus has become the first choice for many people these days.
