LG Optimus Vu official: Galaxy Note gets competition

LG has officially revealed its new 5-inch LG Optimus Vu smartphone/tablet hybrid, challenging Samsung's Galaxy Note with a stylus-enabled 1.5GHz dual-core LTE handset. Teased earlier this month - and now revealed a week ahead of MWC 2012 and its official official debut - the Optimus Vu mimics a mini-iPad with its 4:3 aspect 1024 x 768 screen; like the iPad it uses an IPS panel, too, here with 650 nits brightness. At launch, the Optimus Vu will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but LG is promising Ice Cream Sandwich within three months of that.

LG Optimus 3D 2 photo leaked, details included

Leading up to Mobile World Congress 2012, we're seeing heaps of leaked images and details of devices in the mobile world, the latest being the LG Optimus 3D 2. This device is set to be the next generation 3D device from LG, the first being of course the LG Optimus 3D, and is set to trump the first edition with specifications that make it thinner, lighter, and as you can see - whiter. This device will also do away with capacitive buttons if our sources are correct, the front of the device relying on buttons from the operating system instead - but will it be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich?

LG Optimus Vu and Samsung Galaxy Note pictured side-by-side

To say the least, LG made some heads turn when its newest smartphone, known as the Optimus Vu, made its rounds on the blogosphere. The fact that it sports a 5-inch display is intriguing enough; it's part of what could be new trend. But what's really odd is its 4:3 aspect ratio, making us think back to the days of old-school TV. You know, before the letters "HD" meant anything to most people. The question many posed was "why do we want to step back to that time?"

LG’s Optimus 3D successor reported to be called the 3D Max

The Optimus 3D phone didn't gain a huge amount of traction but it did set an important milestone as a flagship glasses-free 3D handset.

LG CX2 “Optimus 3D 2” teased in press photos

When we first reviewed the original LG Optimus 3D device last year, it was an interesting adventure to be sure, but not exactly one we expected LG to be bringing us on again - that's the case though it does appear as the LG CX2 has appeared in press photos with the same (or improved) 3D capabilities on front and back. While the original relied on the 3D content it captured on its own as well as some applications developed specifically for its 3D engine, this new LG 3D smartphone will be able to convert 2D objects to 3D and has an improved collection of specifications besides to entice the masses once more. Has the 3D revolution continued past its big year in 2011 to re-invade in 2012?

Art Lebedev Mini Six and Optimus Popularis launching at last

The relatively short history of the Art Lebedev line of customizable keyboards is a tragic one when you consider how much we've wanted to get our hands on every single one of these OLED screen per-key boards and their subsequent delays, but now we're really getting down to business here in 2012 with not only the Mini Three and the Aux, but the Mini Six and the long-awaited Optimus Popularis as well. The great thing about these boards of keys is that not only are they customizable in their functions, they are each of them their own OLED display*, this allowing you to show yourself whatever you like to tap. While the original Optimux Maximus has been out for some time (2007), we've been waiting for the full expansion for what seems like an eternity.
