If you live in Europe and your head hasn't been turned by a certain other quad-core phone from a Korean manufacturer, you may be interested to know that LG's Optimus 4X HD is now rolling out across the continent as expected. The company announced that Germany will get the Tegra 3-powered device first of all before it comes to the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK, and Italy. Releases in Asia, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe will then follow.

We haven't been particularly enamored with any LG phones in a while, but this one could be different — we mostly liked the Optimus 4X HD's industrial design when we used it at Mobile World Congress, and we've even been fairly impressed with LG's Optimus UI 3.0 skin that runs on top of the company's Android 4.0 devices. In any case, it should be an improvement over the Nitro HD.
