LG Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule dropped

LG Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule dropped

The folks at LG have let known today what and when they plan on doing with their active line of smart devices in regards to the newest Google-made mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What they've got on the books as of today is a "global upgrade schedule" beginning in the second and third quarters of 2012, followed then by a "global roll out." There is a list, of course, which we're hoping LG will follow implicitly, as they promise that they're "taking all possible measure to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner." On the other hand, they do not that exact start dates very well could vary by market as each country, carrier, and smartphone model have different requirements.

Can PRADA Save LG?

Can PRADA Save LG?

LG's first PRADA Phone was legitimately groundbreaking, with its pre-iPhone capacitive touchscreen. The second PRADA handset was a stumbling attempt to cash in on a much-loved fashion label. Now, with the PRADA Phone by LG 3.0, the Korean firm is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Samsung and end 2011 on a high. The signs are surprisingly good: a great display only marred by mediocre resolution, a neatly designed body and no shortage of top-tier features like NFC, speedy HSPA+ and a potent dual-core. Can the third-gen PRADA Phone - and the lessons to be learned from it - lead LG to mobile salvation?

LG PRADA Phone K2 confirmed for early 2012

LG and Prada have confirmed plans to launch the third PRADA phone in early 2012, sharing some early sketches of the fashion-centric smartphone but refusing to spill technical details. The device - believed to be the Android-powered PRADA K2 first spotted on a leaked roadmap midway through this year - will be a combination of "style, design and breakthrough technology" according to the two firms, and certainly looks to do away with a physical keyboard.

LG rejected Android pole position insider reveals

LG rejected Android pole position insider reveals

LG, not HTC, was to be Google's original partner on the first commercial Android smartphone, according to the latest industry rumors, with Android chief Andy Rubin being forced to turn to the then-little-known Taiwanese firm after LG backed out of the deal. Although negotiations had begun in early 2007 for hardware partners, a source tells the WSJ, first-choice LG opted out midway through the year leaving HTC to pick up the reins. It's a decision which hindsight suggests did LG no favors, given HTC subsequently rode Android to its current prominence.

LG Prada K2 caught on (blurry) video

Leaked video purportedly showing a (very blurry) LG Prada K2 smartphone has emerged, doing very little to dampen our enthusiasm about the incoming touchscreen handset. The clip, passed to Pocketnow, shows a brief glimpse of the slimline slab, which is tipped to use LG's NOVA technology for its 4.3-inch display and deliver 1,000 nits of brightness. To put that into perspective, the Super AMOLED Plus panel on the Galaxy S II is said to run at around 300 nits, and the iPhone 4 Retina Display at around 500 nits.

iPhone / Samsung F700 / Prada Phone Rumors Debunked

iPhone / Samsung F700 / Prada Phone Rumors Debunked

The following image has been circulating the internet for the past few days, resulting in mass hysteria due to the fact that Apple is currently suing the pants off of Samsung for infringing on their copyrights. This image appears to show that the Samsung F700 was first shown at CEBIT 2006 and released in February of 2007. What whoever made the image didn't take the time to do was check their facts and find that although Samsung may have spoken about advancing their cell phone plans previous to 2007, they only showed the F700 design for the first time February 8th, 2007.

LG PRADA 3 to use Android; headed to Sprint in 2010?

LG PRADA 3 to use Android; headed to Sprint in 2010?

Mark this down as a definite vague rumor for the moment, but there's talk that LG's next PRADA cellphone might adopt the Android OS.  The so-called PRADA 3 is expected to have a QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen, and it's also been suggested that US carrier Sprint will be offering the device.  If so, it would make this particular luxury smartphone the first carrying the PRADA name to use CDMA rather than a GSM radio.

LG GD510 “Pop”: style & solar charging, but short on specs

LG GD510 “Pop”: style & solar charging, but short on specs

Sometimes a gadget comes along that is so pretty that, when you realise it has a spec-sheet more barren than the Sahara, you can't help but tear at your chest and roar.  LG's GD510 "Pop" isn't quite so bad as all that, but it's a handsome 3-inch touchscreen phone - the most compact ever with such a screen-size, they say - with a brushed aluminum body that throws out most of the things we take for granted in today's handsets.  WiFi we can live without, but a handset lacking 3G?  For shame!
