Dialed In 151: LG's blowin' up (podcast)

In the U.S., LG's been rather quiet on the smartphone front, but looks like that's about to change. Find out what the company's up to in this week's Dialed In podcast.

This week's episode of Dialed In is brought to you by the letters L and G, as in LG Electronics, because the company has certainly dominated the headlines these past few days. LG looks to be making a big push in the smartphone market, as it continues to release new smartphones for the U.S., including possibly the first Android device to have a dual-core chipset. Plus, U.S. Cellular and Cellular South detail their LTE plans--well, sort of--and we come to the defense of basic cell phones. All this and more on this week's Dialed In.
