lg-optimus-u1-android-4.0

In my last post about LG, I was pretty harsh with them, and for good reason. They can’t release a high-end $500 phone and then say they aren’t going to support it with the next major... version of Android, by the end of the year.

I find that unacceptable, and I think it will hurt their image in the Android ecosystem. That is something that they don’t need right now, because...

LG Optimus U1

Photos have emerged over the Internet of what seems to be the LG Optimus U1, the Korean company’s supposedly first smartphone to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). There’s no official... statement regarding this sleek and thin device, but possibilities indicate an early 2012 launch.

The photos were discovered online by GSMArena.  Details are scant regarding the Optimus U1, a likely c...

As if things weren’t already looking pretty bad today for LG, announcing decline in smartphone sales and revenues for Q3, mostly because customers don’t trust them too much, they... go ahead and throw a bomb at their current LG Optimus 2X customers (and possibly T-mobile G2X, too), saying it won’t be getting the next Android 4.0 ICS update.

Let me repeat that –...

I wonder if the Android manufacturers, especially the top 5 ones – Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and Sony – can sleep well at night knowing how many millions of devices they’ve... left behind without upgrading them even for a year, or many times without upgrading them at all. I’m thinking they sleep pretty well, knowing they sold the devices to customers, and now they don&...

A recent YouTube video of tech expert Marc Saltzman surfaced recently, and he seems to be talking about the awesome features of the LG Optimus LTE, but refers to it as the LG Eye. And, it seems... that Saltzman has virtually confirmed the LG Eye’s Canadian destination, plus the Bell banner behind him seems to confirm exactly where.

Earlier reports said that LG Canada wasn’t sure...

Super-AMOLED-vs-IPS-LCD-HD

As you might remember, LG recently launched a new Android phone in Korea, called the Optimus LTE. What makes this phone special, at least from our perspective, is the... fact that it is sporting to the world’s first 4.5 inch True HD IPS display, which quite a few industry pundits are saying is more advanced than Samsung’s latest Super HD AMOLED 720p 4.65 inc...

 

I have always been a fan of Sony products. Back in high school, Sony used to be the preferred Walkman music player. They revolutionised the world with the minidisc, which unfortunately... didn’t catch on in the rest of the world. Sony jumped on the Android bandwagon and has produced a few of the most recognized Android phones, namely the Xperia Arc and Xperia Play.

Sony Is Still Trying T...
