LG officially launched yesterday the first 4G LTE smartphone in Seoul, South Korea: the LG Optimus LTE. While the official launch was for South Korea, the likelihood of the LG Optimus LTE’s arrival in the…
While there is now official word on pre-orders starting at BestBuy on Sunday, South Korea is very much enjoying their taste of the Samsung Galaxy Note. Since Samsung is based out of South Korea, customers were able to purchase the device late last year.
These customers are very lucky indeed, as approximately over 700,000 devices have been sold in South Korea alone. This counts for an outstanding 66% of all LTE devices in the country.
Hopefully the device becomes a big success in the U.S as it it has in S.K. I believe that if the device is released on Verizon’s LTE Network alongside AT&T, the popularity of the phone will skyrocket.
And if you are not familiar with the Samsung Galaxy Note it sports an impressive 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a Super AMOLED 5.3” screen. Alongside the processing power and beautiful screen is an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera with the ability to record in 1080p. Of course at this time it will only support AT&T’s network in the U.S.
With the massive screen, hybrid of a tablet and phone, the Galaxy Note will prove it self to be a worthy competitor against upcoming phones. Do you have a Galaxy Note? Do you think that the screen is too big/small? Should it come to Verizon? I would love to hear your comments and remember to check out our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note.
