This one may not go into the Superphones category in Bell Canada’s lineup of Android smartphones, but for its price of 30 dollars, it’s about tantamount to be a superphone in terms of price.  Bell just made available the newest member of its Android smartphones family, the LG Optimus Net.

The handset is available from Bell for $30 dollars on a 3-year contract, $150 with 2-year contract, and $175 with 1-year contract.  Those who don’t want to be tied to Bell service agreements can get the LG Optimus Net at its full retail price of $200.  The 3-year contract price is practically a giveaway, if you ask us.

Price-wise, the LG Optimus Net looks like a very attractive Android smartphone.  This can be a great choice for those who want the Android experience without having to shell out ludicrous amounts of money.

The LG Optimus Net is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an 800-MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 150 MB of internal storage, and a beautiful 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen display at 480×320 resolution.  Although not exactly as powerful as the high-end devices currently on the market–not even of the HTC Raider 4G that’s also coming to Bell on November 1, the LG Optimus Net is a robust-enough device within the low- to mid-range category.

The LG Optimus Net can also accept additional external storage through a microSD card slot.  A 2-gigabyte microSD card is included in the box.  The device also has a 3-megapixel main camera–great enough for capturing good quality photos.

As for connectivity, the LG Optimus Net has pretty much the standard connectivity options: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Mobile Hotspot, DLNA, and GPS.  Plus, with Bell’s HSPA network, users of the LG Optimus Net can enjoy fast Internet download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps.
