After being made official by its maker, the dual-core Android smartphone LG Optimus 2X has surfaced on a Scandinavian retailer’s website. We’re talking about, offering the phone for $730, of course, without contract.

Sweden seems to have a reputation for high prices, so this might explain the steep price tag of this device. It may be a dual core wonderkid, but still, you can get two very good tablets for this kind of money. We’re guessing that once carriers get a hold of the LG Optimux 2X, the Tegra 2 smartphone will be at least $400 cheaper with contract.
