    With its 1GHz single-core processor and its super bright "NOVA" display, the LG Optimus Black Android phone was introduced by the Korean manufacturer at this year's CES back in January. They key words here are "Android phone", but the picture above shows something different. What we've got in the image above is anyone's guess. At a first glance we've got the LG Optimus Black running Windows Phone. If we were to speculate on that, we could come up with four possible explanations: 1. fake (either as in Photoshop or displaying screenshots); 2. port (as in Windows Phone being ported to an ...

    If a leaked U.S. Cellular rebate form previously tipped on the HTC Desire II and Wildfire S, among others, coming to the carrier, the entire Q3-Q4 line-up has been recently leaked and made public. The image with the two phones above is just part of the leak AndroidCentral published and it includes some interesting phones. First we have the Motorola Electrify, your Motorola Photon, with its dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, eight-megapixel camera and Android 2.3, allegedly coming October. Next up is the LG Optimus Black and its ultra-bright "NOVA" display of four inches, ...

    The success of LG's Optimus One seems to have opened the door for the manufacturer to bring higher-end devices to the states, and now it looks as if the Optimus Black will land on Sprint, Virgin, and Alltel alongside US Cellular, which we learned last month. Thanks to an entry in the Tera-WURFL handset database, we discovered that model US855 was an Optimus Black variant, with the US tipping a US Celluar destination. And now that US855 has passed through the FCC, we find that it will also be available as the LS855, AS855, and VM855 -- with LS, AS, and VM being LG's codes for Sprint, ...

    The LG Optimus Black showed up in a special edition white color, unsurprisingly called the LG Optimus White and is available to pre-order in the U.K. We've heard of other possible color variations for the smartphone back in January and here it is, the LG Optimus White. U.K. isn't the only market where a white LG Optimus Black makes its appearance. Japan has the LG Optimus Bright on DoCoMo (image below) and hopefully other markets will get the pale version too. The smartphone, initially launched at CES, sports an exceptionally bright, four-inch, 700 nit NOVA display and a two-megapixel ...

    Two high-end LG handsets have been tipped for smaller US carriers: the LG Revolution for MetroPCS and LG Optimus Black for US Cellular. Both the MS910 and US855 have entries in the Tera-WURFL database, a comprehensive listing of handsets culled from developer-contributed specifications regarding wireless and messaging capabilities. With MS910 going by the codename Bryce -- the same codename as the VS910 Revolution -- and "MS" designated by LG as the prefix for Android handsets on MetroPCS, its identity and destination seem fairly certain. The fact that Metro is looking for smartphones to ...

    Hidden away withing the carrier's Sprint ID app, there lives a list of Sprint devices. More than just what's currently available on Sprint, the list includes a few placeholders for smartphones that have yet to be released. With a little guesswork, we can take a stab at identifying what upcoming hardware each name refers to. The list currently includes the unreleased LG Optimus B, LG Q, Samsung Chief, and Motorola Sunfire. The Optimus B could easily be the LG Optimus Black. Early on, before "Black" took hold, the smartphone was referred to as simply the LG B. Lacking any other reasonable ...

    U.S. Cellular has announced its plans for bringing a total of eight smartphones to its line-up this year out of which seven Google Android-powered (including its first 4G-enabled smartphone) and one Microsoft Windows Phone 7-powered smartphone. From the above mentioned eight, three will be made by Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, two running Android and one Windows Phone. There will also be a dual-core 1GHz processor-powered Motorola smartphone with a 4.3-inch display running Android (probably an Atrix-like model) as well as "one of the slimmest and lightest smartphones" from LG (the Optimus ...

    The LG Optimus Black -- with its 1GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, five-megapixel main camera with auto-focus and LED flash, front-facing two-megapixel webcam and more -- is coming shortly to the U.S. but Canada gets a special edition. The LG Optimus Black Skype Edition is your ordinary Optimus Black but sports a pre-loaded Skype app, making it the "first Skype-branded phone on the Canadian market". Apparently there's a deal between Telus and Skype that would offer Optimus Black Skype Edition owners 60 minutes of Skype international calling credits as well as Skype $2 credit. And that's not all, ...

    LG's Optimus Black has a lot of things going for it: it's super-slim, light as a feather, and has one heck of a bright screen thanks to LG's NOVA display technology. It's pretty easy for us to appreciate its specs, but when you're comparing smartphone vs. smartphone and talking about measurements differing by tenths of millimeters, that analysis can get pretty dry, pretty fast, for the layman. Early last month, LG released a teaser video for the Optimus Black that ran into just that kind of problem. Clearly it's learned a little since then (or just hired a better ad agency), and has now ...

    After showing the world how thin and light the LG Optimus Black is -- which is by the way available on T-Mobile U.K. and hopefully soon in the U.S. -- the Korean manufacturer brags about the one-handed usability of the Android smartphone. Using the combination of Gesture UI and G-Key, you can easily operate the smartphone with only using one hand. Tasks like answering a call, skipping to the next song in the playlist or picture in an album and heading directly to the Camera application is rather simple. Check out the video below to see how: Source: YouTube

    As we're getting closer and closer to the LG Optimus Black availability -- should hit Europe this month with US to follow shortly after -- the manufacturer is starting to tease the phone with promo videos emphasizing on various aspects and features of the smartphone. The first one below brings your attention to the physical aspect and measurements of the LG Optimus Black, built with a uni-window front. Its side edge measures 6mm -- with 9.2mm at the center -- and weight 109gr, which is 7gr less that the Samsung Galaxy S II's 116gr. Let's not forget about the excellent NOVA display we bet ...

    We already heard rumors of the LG Optimus Black becoming available sometime this week in the UK and we were asking ourselves when the smartphone will arrive to the U.S. Market. According to LG's press release, the Optimus Black, introduced at this year's CES in January, should be available "globally across six continents beginning in Europe before heading to North America and Asia". The press release also assures us that the Optimus Black "will make its international debut in Europe later this month" so it's safe to assume that it should pop up on one of the U.S. carrier's sometime in ...

    LG unveiled the Optimus Black Android Smartphone with the occasion of this year's CES back in January -- at that time as the world's thinnest smartphone at its 9.2-millimeter thickness, no longer valid today. LG's Product Manager for the Optimus Black told Pocket-lint that the smartphone "should be in stores by the end of next week" but there was no word on which carriers would be stocking up on it. Anyways, good news for enthusiasts waiting for the super bright, four-inch, 700 nit NOVA display (IPS). The LG Optimus Black is lightweight as it measures only 109 grams and packs a TI-OMAP ...
