LG Confirms The LG B's Existence, Will Show It At CES

Just hours after LG’s unveiling of the dual-core, Android-powered Optimus 2X, a different Android-powered LG superphone rocketed out of the rumor mill: the LG “B”.

In a totally out-of-character move (not just for LG, but for any mobile hardware company), LG has gone ahead and confirmed the rumored handset’s existence.

In a tweet from LG’s official twitter account for CES 2011, someone from the company blasted out:

seein is believin! The super slim & super bright “LG B” Android phone. come to #CES #CES11 and see with your own eyes!!

Surely that was a mistake, deleted immediately thereafter, right? Nope. In fact, they followed up that Tweet with at least four other @ messages directed at various bloggers/Android fans, inviting them to check out the handset at a pre-CES party.

Beats paying the PR team to write up a press release, eh?
