"Leaked photos of an LG Android smartphone supposedly called the "B" reveal what could be the slimmest smartphone yet -- even skinnier than the iPhone 4. The screen also appears to be extremely bright. "Everybody's searching for ways, however big or small, to one-up the iPhone, which is supposed to be the slimmest device," Laura DiDio, principal at ITIC, told LinuxInsider.

"Hot on the heels of its announcement of the Optimus 2X smartphone this week, LG is reported to be working on yet another Android mobile phone.

"LG itself has been somewhat coy regarding the smartphone. After Phandroid's story broke, LG posted a message on Twitter via an account dubbed "LGmobileCES11" inviting attendees of the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show to see the LG B at the conference in person. Later, that tweet was apparently removed and replaced with a message and a link directing the account's followers to check out an article about the LG B on UnwiredView.com -- which sources its information from the original Phandroid news item."
