LG recently released a press statement outlining the new Optimus brand. This will include 10 new Android devices, including a tablet. As far as I can tell, all of the Optimus smartphones will include Android 2.2, but cover the high and lower-end of the market. The Optimus One “with Google” is, to no ones surprise, going to be the first handset to market. It will include an OMAP3630 processor, 3.8-inch display, HD camera, HDMI/DNLA support, and Android 2.2. These specifications are strong and reliable, but nothing too exciting. I hope that this is not the highest of the high-end devices…

Although there have been whispers of an LG Android based tablet, an article on the Wall Street Journal pretty much confirms the matter. According to the Wall Street Journal, LG Electronics Inc. are South Korea’s second-largest electronics producer ranked by revenue. The only firm to out perform them are Samsung Electronics Co. Now, LG have made it clear that “it plans to launch an Android-powered tablet computer” later on this year. We have no word on specifications nor worldwide availability, however, you can expect the device in Q4 2010 and it has been said that this device will offer something…

LG has commented that it will release up to 20 smartphones this year that are based on our beloved Google Android. The chief financial officer has admitted that LG needs “some more time’’ to turnaround its failing smartphone department. They will be the first to admit that the main reason they have done so badly thus far is down to the fact that they were under-prepared. Up until now, LG have announced five Android handsets: LG GW620, LG Optimus GT540 (as shown), LG Ally for Verizon, LG Optimus Q LU2300 and LG SU2300. This leaves us with another 15 to…

Verizon officially announced that it is now offering a V CAST Video application in the Verizon channel of the Android Market found on its Android powered smartphones.  Use of the app requires a $10 monthly service fee, which provides users with access to video clips from television networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX.  It does not, however, provide access to live TV. As of this moment, as I write this, the application is still not showing up on the HTC DROID Incredible or LG Ally.  I’ll give it a look-see when it finally shows up, which should be…

Busy couple of Android-related days here. I’ve just made live my full length review of the LG Ally for Verizon. It’s a very slick Android 2.1 smartphone with a great slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a WVGA resolution display, and some of the best calling abilities I’ve come across in a very long time. You know. For those people that like to make phone calls with their phones.  I’m sure you know somebody like that. Anyway, the phone is a bit plain looking, if you ask me, and hefty (160g!), but the real issue with it has been software stability. I can’t…

LG has shown its new Optimus Q (not to be confused with Optimus Prime, I suppose), a new Android touchscreen smartphone for the South Korean market that features a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Few other details have been supplied yet, it seems, but LG suggests that the device will go on sale later in the month. [via MobileBurn]

LG Aloha reemerges

The LG Aloha has remained fairly elusive ever since we first heard about it a month or two ago. Naturally, the device was first believed to be its own high-end device which later was squashed by the release of the LG Ally. It was then thought that the Ally was actually the Aloha re-branded, but in truth they could be two completely different phones. The specifications, however, are remarkably similar. Nonetheless, a device going by the name of the LG-C710h has just passed through the FCC. This device appears to be headed for AT&T. The LG C710 supports WCDMA bands…

I received a new LG Ally the other day and put together a nice hands-n video of it in action. I like it far more than I expected to. Reminds me very much of the Motorola DROID. In ant case, here’s the video. We’ll have a full review of it soon enough.

LG Ally site falters

The Ironman 2 commercials are now in full throttle, marketing the film for a 7 May 2010 release. So the end of the TV advert itself, viewers are encouraged to head over to the LG Ally website to find out more information about the phone. The ironic thing is, when you visit this website for this Android based device, it still has a holding page telling users that the information that we so desperately want to read is going to be available, well, yesterday. Clearly, someone within the LG camp has not put the Ally website online. What we can…

I’ve heard different things about the LG Ally, previously known as LG LU2300 or Aloha. We.ve seen different mock-ups of the same device dating back months. However, according to BGR the Ally is set to land on Verizon Wireless network in May. Despite the different mock-ups that we’ve already posted here on Android Authority, the specifiction sheet has remained pretty constant.
