    Besides the Revolution, LG had its Optimus Black to show off back at this year's CES in January. While we've been seeing the Revolution pop up all over, the Black's been keeping a comparatively low profile. The super-thin Android was targeted for release in the first half of 2011, and for a while that was the best estimation of the phone's release that we had to go on. Now the Black's available for pre-order and is being advertised by carriers, but some conflicting information has us wondering just when the Optimus Black will finally go up for sale. For a while, the Black was tipped for a ...

    LG Optimus Black is advertised to be the world's thinnest smartphone at its 9.2-millimeter thickness and we had a hands-on with the device with the occasion of this year's Consumer Electronics Show. Regardless of its name ("Black"), the handset is likely to be available in other color variations as LG told Pocket-lint in a recent interview that they are shifting towards customization. While the manufacturer considers smartphones available these days as being "too similar and too masculine", James Choi, marketing strategy and planning director of LG Electronics global said that the company ...

    It seems to be all the rage these days for smartphone OEMs to come up with glamorous names for new screens after Apple started the trend with the Retina display on the iPhone 4. The big story on the LG Optimus Black is its screen, which is capable of producing more screen brightness than any other smartphone display (says LG). Dubbed the Nova Display, we did indeed find the quality of the Black's screen to be fantastic, perhaps on par with Samsung's Super AMOLED. LG is also claiming that the Black is the thinnest Android phone. Alas, they must not have been to Sony Ericsson's booth to see ...

    "B" is for "Black", or at least that's how LG's alphabet book reads. The company's revealed two new smartphones as it prepares for the CES, finally giving a name to the "B" we heard about last month, which it seems will be known as the LG Optimus Black. The second is the LG Revolution, which will feature LTE connectivity on Verizon. Engadget scored some pics of LG setting up its CES display, and took the opportunity to grab some pre-announcement shots of the promo material for these two handsets. Now we have an actual measurement to back up the earlier pictures of the very thin B - now ...

    LG has taken the wraps off of its high-end LG Optimus Black, a 9.2-millimeter thick, Android 2.2 Froyo-powered handset that it's calling the world's thinnest smartphone. Highlighted by an exceptionally bright, four-inch, 700 nit NOVA display (seems to be a proprietary LG LCD technology) and two-megapixel front-facing camera, Black weighs just 109 grams and features Wi-Fi Direct technology for device-to-device transfers. Unfortunately, LG has made no mention of processor, main camera resolution, or RAM/storage capacity; the only other info worth passing on is that a Gingerbread upgrade has ...
