Previously today, we’ve talked about LG’s plans to develop a “thinking smartphone”, a very interesting endeavor that aims to put the South Korean smartphone manufacturer above local... rival Samsung (as well as other major manufacturers around the globe). But, as the thinking smartphone is probably at least a couple of years from entering production, it does make a lot of sense for...

lg thinking smartphone

While LG currently sits in the shadow of local rival Samsung, it was not long ago that both tech mammoths were just starting to make an impact on the Android smartphone market. The only thing... that kept LG from “booming” – as was the case with Samsung – was the lack of an innovating smartphone, something to differentiate LG from other manufacturers.

Some may contradict...

Sprint-Galaxy-Nexus-LTE

Quick, what does it mean for Sprint to be the nation’s third largest carrier?

Does it mean that phone manufacturers would choose the two bigger networks over it to showcase their... flagship devices? Check.

Does it mean that new smartphones that are coming out are lagging behind several months from the competitors? Check.

Case in point, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, whic...

LG-Optimus-3D-Max-Cube-1

With the ever increasing popularity of 3D movies and the ability to view entire movies on your smartphone, have you ever thought about combining the two? Well, you aren’t the first –... LG brought the Optimus 3D, the first 3D phone, to market in April, last year. We now have an heir-apparent to the Optimus 3D, LG announcing the arrival of the Optimus 3D Max (with naming variations of Op...

Ice Cream Sandwich

We are all eagerly awaiting for the multitude of phones and tablets featuring Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive. ICS was first announced and launched (on the Samsung Galaxy... Nexus) in October last year, and since then, every device manufacturer announced upgrades to Android 4.0 for at least some of their devices. But, as of now, according to Google itself, only 1.6% of al...

Samsung Fined

Although the combined $40 million is more like a slap on the wrist than a serious punishment, the fine that South Korea’s Fair Trade Commission (FTC) has applied to Samsung, LG, and Pantech... (the three biggest mobile technology makers in SK) is newsworthy.

First things first – what happened? An inquiry ran by the FTC, South Korea’s corporate watchdog, found that Samsung, LG, and...

LG Optimus Vu

Just about a month since we’ve first heard about the Optimus Vu, LG’s 5-inch phone/tablet hybrid, the device has become available in its native South Korea. With all the vaporware floating... around in the Android ecosystem, it’s good to see that, occasionally, a company delivers on its promises in a timely manner.

The Optimus Vu, LG’s response to Samsung’s 5.3-inch Galaxy Note...

It’s funny how mobile manufacturers can get too overexcited at times, even up to the point of announcing their flagship devices way ahead of the time for a major event to happen, such... as Mobile World Congress. On the contrary, perhaps, it’s all a part of the master plan. We are actually referring to LG, the South Korean consumer electronics giant who recently revealed their...

t-mobile

T-Mobile is preparing for a new bunch of Android smartphones and tablets that they will be exhibiting at next month’s Mobile World Congress and the CTIA. This means is that they will be clearing... out their shelves to make room for the new models. And yes, they’re letting go of 6 Android devices which TmoNews has gathered to be:

Despite the fact that the US smartphone market is thickly populated by Android, Apple’s own iOS platform was able to regain some of its losses in the recently concluded quarter. Based on data... collected by statistical firm Nielsen, the 44.5% of consumers who bought a smartphone between October and December chose an iPhone. Prior to the iPhone 4S launch in October, iPhone only had a ranking of...
