LG Optimus Vu

The Intuition is the fancy new name of LG’s Optimus Vu “phablet”. Athough rumors from last week stated that it’ll come on the 15th of September, it now seems that Verizon and LG are going out of their way to undercut the US release of the Galaxy Note 2.

We’ve known about the 5″ Optimus VU: and plans of being put on Big Red’s lineup for quite some time. But what we didn’t know was exactly how this phablet would appear once fully garnished in Verizon’s branding. Leaked press photos have just surfaced and looks are not the only revealing thing; a possible Q3 release is in store.

For those who haven’t been tuned into the battle between LG and HTC, the latter seems to be winning. But with the unveiling of its phablet in Korea and Japan recently, it seems the tide may change suddenly, if LG is to have its way in the market.

Phablet enthusiasts may have quite a bit to be excited about this year. Samsung officially has announced an August 29th release date for its Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and now it seems that LG’s own phablet may be heading to the U.S. Market. The Optimus Vu has already sold over 500,000 units since it’s launch in March of 2012, so it’s not surprising to hear that the company now officially has plans for the States.

Samsung and LG are both from South Korea, and bot...

Although LG made the Optimus Vu “phablet” available as a Korea-only device back in March, we suspected that things won’t stay the same for a very long time. However, seeing that the 5-incher... was nowhere to be found in the US or Europe almost four months after that, we pretty much lost hope for the gadget to ever become globally released.

That’s until we spotted a set of FCC approval d...

So what we have here… Some jolly good news about the arrival of Android 4.0 ICS to a few LG smartphones.

Unfortunately, except for the LG Optimus LTE, which is more popularly known... in the US as the LG Nitro HD and LG Spectrum, the rest are phones that have not made it outside their native South Korea. According to the LG’s website, the trio will be getting the official ICS t...

Starting from the brick-style cell phone of the late Eighties, the design of the mobile has progressed towards being smaller and more feature-rich. We saw the introduction of flip-phones, slider... phones, and smaller candybar style devices.
