The good news is that nowadays, buying one doesn’t mean you have to scrimp and eat instant ramen for the rest of the year. There are a lot of phones out right now, running Android Froyo 2.2 no less, that are very affordable and right on the mark. If you’ve been looking for a capable Android phone that doesn’t bite your budget, here are five of the best ones you can choose from: Huawei IDEOS U8150 Display: 2.8-inch TFT,…

Here is a video of the LG Optimus 2X perhaps also known as the LG Star (SU660). Alledgely set for the Korean market, the video above displays this device working with HDMI the way phones should work with HDMI. It’s seamless, smooth and works rather well. This device looks very similar to the LG Star that we have already given some read-time too. The difference allegedly being that the LG Optimus 2X is a dual-core equivalent. In a video presented after the break, we get to see the Optimus 2X apparently wipe the floor with the Samsung Galaxy S. Of…

GSM Israel have produced a wonderful hands-on video revealing the upcoming LG Star. As you may expect, the 7 minute long video is not in English, but provides a great overview of the phone’s appearance and a sneak peak into its feature set. The interface certainly bares similarities to Samsung’s Touchwiz UI, and aspects of HTCs interface too. The device itself is larger than the iPhone and more comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S. The screen looks very sharp, even next to that Retina Display. It offers HDMI out and of course packs the dual-core Tegra 2 chip which is…

Unfortunately this news item is a little cryptic. LG are rumored to release a high-end tablet device offering superior performance, but remaining lighter and thinner providing many “firsts” when compared to its competitors. However, this all but seemed official until LG refused to comment on the news and also removed twitter posts. The device itself is set to offer Honeycomb, the “tablet PC-version” of the Android OS. Furthermore, it will offer a 8.9-inch display and will be called the LG Pad. We’re excited to hear that this will land in the first quarter of 2011, even though this probably means…

It has already been well documented that Verizon’s 4G LTE network will be in nearly 40 different cities around the United States by the end of this year. These cities include Seattle through to Denver and even down to San Diego. However, until now it has not been super clear which phones will mak use of this network when it is rolled out, at least from a branding perspective. For sure, we can expect Verizon to launch phones with the LTE logo and specifically push them as part of its LTE advertisement campaign. Well, it turns out that this LG…

Shazam is one of the original music identification applications. I’m sure you use it, or have heard of it, but for the sake of those who have not, this application allows you to hold your phone up towards a speaker and have it report to you the name and artist of a song or piece of music. Shazam has been around the block and as such, it is arguably the most accurate recognition software for music available for any mobile device. It turns out that LG know all this too, and have decided to pre-load Shazam on all of their…

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…
