The Samsung Galaxy Note is getting some company in the emerging world of mega-smartphones from LG's Optimus Vu, which has been revealed ahead of the upcoming Mobile World Congress.
The world is now home to at least two 5-inch Korean-made Android smartphones that are blurring the line between phone and tablet and attempting to resurrect the stylus. Like the Galaxy Note, the Optimus Vu is designed with a pen-friendly interface in mind.
LG also claims the 4:3 aspect ratio on the Optimus Vu as a central selling point--a Korean press release touts the huge screen space and brightness as ideal for reading e-books and other content.… Read more
LG has started dropping hints about its next Android device, an oversize smartphone known as the Optimus Vu.
Aside from its name and the fact that it features an unorthodox 4:3 aspect ratio, nothing else can be gleaned from a newly uncovered YouTube video. That's not to say, however, that there are no other details to speak of. … Read more

Looks like LG is having another go at making a 3D phone. The follow-up to last year's Optimus 3D has leaked online and is set to offer another round of glasses-free three-dimensional kicks.
Pocketnow has acquired leaked images of the new phone (reportedly code-named the CX2), as well as a selection of specs. The exciting news is that the Optimus 3D 2 will reportedly be able to convert 2D material into 3D before firing it out of its 4.3-inch display, and into your eyes.
We have to admit, when we've seen 2D-to-3D conversion before (in 3D televisions, for example), it's never wound up looking particularly good. We'll reserve judgement until we've laid eyes on this phone for ourselves though.

A year after LG brought Android to the masses with its entry-level Optimus line, the company is doing the same with its new Optimus 2.
Though positioned as a successor device, the Optimus 2 barely improves on the earlier models. It runs Gingerbread (thankfully), but the feature set is decidedly conservative.
You'll find a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, a speakerphone, a music player, Swype for the virtual keyboard, a camcorder, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a microSD slot that takes cards up to 32GB. The minimalist candy bar design has a 3.2-inch, 16 million-color capacitive touch … Read more
Hasbro is accusing Asus of hijacking one of its trademarks with the release of the Transformer Prime tablet.
The toymaker claimed in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles federal court last week that the electronics maker is creating confusion by blending the "Transformers" and Optimus Prime names. Hasbro said in a statement that Asus is counting on consumers associating the new tablet with children's toys to sell the Transformer Prime.
"Hasbro continues to aggressively protect its brands and products and the specific actions we are taking today against Asus underscores yet again Hasbro's willingness to … Read more
If you thought Verizon Wireless was going to slow down on the high-end Android smartphones, you'd be wrong.
Based on recently leaked information, soon we should see an LG phone with 4G LTE connectivity and an HD display. Expected to be called the LG Spectrum, the smartphone should be the heir apparent to the Revolution which launched in mid-2011.
Rumored hardware details for the LG Spectrum match up quite nicely with the recently announced Optimus LTE and Nitro HD (AT&T). Specifications include a 1,280x720-pixel HD display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 8-megapixel camera and support for 4G … Read more
