    It's been a pretty wild week for mobile tech, and the one before that wasn't too shabby, either. Before that came IFA, which brought us some new hotness itself. You could say this autumn has so far been an epic explosion of new technology in the smartphone and tablet world. That's good news. For OEMs, for us, and for you. But it also means that sometimes, things can slip through the cracks. Take yesterday: we were so entranced by the news coming out of NYC's launch event for the HTC Windows Phone 8S and 8X and its implications for the Windows Phone landscape that we completely bypassed the ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the official release of iOS 6 and what you can expect from it. Then we go through some recent leaks of Windows Phone 7.8, which sadly got pulled as early as they made the news. Then we talk about the iPad mini and the recent leaked images of the full device assembled. The Cyan version of the Nokia Lumia 920 is next because apparently we will get that color variant. We end today's show by talking about both the LG Optimus G event and the HTC Windows Phone event, which are scheduled for later today, and which we'll be covering. All this and more ...

    LG is clearly very excited about its Optimus G. After all, it announced the phone right at the end of last month, capitalizing on the IFA press, has been teasing its arrival with videos ever since, and today we learned that LG was announcing the very same phone, yet again! OK, so LG might seem a little scatterbrained after all this, but if the Optimus G and its quad-core Snapdragon S4 are really as great as the manufacturer makes them out to be, we suppose it's had cause to get a little frazzled, all caught-up in the excitement. Tomorrow we're hoping to get the full breakdown on how the ...

    After a rather healthy and meaty period of hinting and teasing LG finally announced the Optimus G, which, to be honest, we really hoped to see on display at the IFA 2012. Well, later's always better than never and we're looking at the company's flagship to take on current competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S III or HTC One X. The LG Optimus G packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC clocking at 1.5GHz with Krait CPUs and LTE. The display is one of 4.7-inches (True HD IPSPlus) with WXGA resolution (1280 x 768 pixels) and a 15:9 ratio; there are 2GB of RAM to back up the speedy ...

    Here in America, the smartphone landscape doesn't always follow in lockstep with the rest of the planet. Sometimes we get hot new devices months ahead of the rest of the planet, as with the American-made Motorola Droid RAZR M; other times, we only see widespread availability of cool hardware months after release- the Nokia Lumia 800 and PureView 808 are good examples. And carrier sponsorship -or lack thereof- has a huge effect on whether a particular smartphone gains traction here. It's for this reason that LG hasn't featured strongly in my writing here at Pocketnow, or in my life in ...

    If LG plays its cards right, it might really have an Android worth noticing with the release of the Optimus G. After LG distributed invitations the other day for an event next week, we've been hoping that it will take the opportunity to share the details of how this phone will come to the US. While LG's still keeping us guessing, the phone's already been announced for the South Korean market, and LG's been preparing its advertising campaign for the handset. This new video doesn't really show anything new, but it's still a nice way to get a quick look at a new phone that's yet to debut over ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through the iPhone 5 pre orders, which seem to be quickly running out. We then talk about LG's event along with Qualcomm where we assume the Optimus G will be revealed. We follow with some recent updates on Google Wallet, which are finally positive after years of deployment. Then we talk about Microsoft's recently weird move with Windows Phone 7.8, which we could say, backfired on them. We end today's show talking about some of the unfortunate news about the iPhone 5, so make sure you don't miss out on it. All this and more after the break.

    September's already been off to a great start, with smartphone announcements from some of the industry's biggest players. There's more in store for us soon, like HTC's press event scheduled for September 19. That's turning out to be a busy day, as LG just issued its own invites for a smartphone event taking place the very same day. What might LG have to share? The company’s been teasing its Optimus G a lot lately, which is looking to be quite the powerhouse. It's already been officially announced, but LG might be hoping to specifically promote the phone's launch on US carriers. It will ...

    LG has been kind of silent at this year's IFA, at least if we compare what they showed off to our expectations. We wanted to see the highly anticipated Optimus G but we've only managed to look at the specced up Optimus VU -- which we skipped for obvious reasons -- and the Optimus L9. We even talked about that in our Special IFA Edition Pocketnow Weekly podcast episode 008. It sure looks like the Optimus G will be a big thing and we might not be surprised if LG threw a special event for it, you know, a la Apple and Samsung more recently. They sure tease the phone on the internet and the ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through all the details of the recently announced LG Optimus G, which does change the game with it's spec sheet. We later talk about Samsung's recent plot for world domination by launching the Galaxy S III in more colors for your choice. We then go through the recently leaked images of a Nokia device that we're already calling a fake. On a sad note, we talk about Motorola's new strategy to know when you've rooted your device, and we end today's show talking about the possibilities of NFC coming to the iPhone 5. All this and more after the break. Which ...

    It seems that LG wasn't kidding when they recently teased that their future Optimus G was going to be a game changer. The device was just made official in Japan and it'll be the first in a lot of areas of smartphone innovation. First of all we've got the first device powered by a 1.5 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon S4 Pro AQP8064 CPU. The long name in the processor doesn't only allow blazing speeds but also provides LTE support on the same chip. The display is also new as it brings their IPS+ technology powering True HD resolution at 1280 x 768. According to LG, this new display allows for the ...

    That's right, it's that time of year where smartphone OEMs prepare to bring us most, if not all their device line-up for the holiday season. IFA 2011 shoed us some good devices like the HTC Titan and Radar Windows Phones, and we also got the popular Samsung Galaxy Note that pretty much launched the Phablet category into existence. Our team is already preparing to fly to Berlin to bring you live coverage of everything that'll happen at the event, but while they're at it, let's go through our top 5 predictions of what we might get.

    There have been so many rumors about the upcoming LG super-phone that we are already taking it for granted. Whether it will be called the Optimus G -- previously hinted and leaked -- or something else is yet unknown but LG itself has teased a phone and they're now confirming it (sort of). According to the latest official wording the LG group has brought the best of its divisions -- LG Chem, LG Display and LG Innotek -- to build this phone. It will be the first quad-core LTE smartphone being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 SoC. Not only will it be "blazing fast" but, ...

    We've heard of the LG Optimus G, the power-house that is expected to be unveiled at the IFA. Qualcomm confirmed that they are working on a super-phone with LG and then the manufacturer started teasing something really cool. Now we're presented with images claiming to be the Optimus G. A quick rundown of the specs, as accompanying the images, mentions a 4.7-inch IPS HD display with 1280 x 720 resolution, 2GB of RAM, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocking at 1.5Ghz, aided by the Adreno 320 GPU, 13-megapixel camera and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich (Jelly Bean ...

    Remember the LG super-phone which, according to recent reports, will probably be the LG Optimus G? It is expected to be powered by a quad-core processor, and pack 2GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, and a 4.7-inch screen with probably 1280 x 768 resolution. That "quad-core processor" will probably be one made by Qualcomm, as they unveiled recently, and will be a Snapdragon S4 chip with four cores. There is no official confirmation and Qualcomm only unveiled the fact that they are involved in the production of "a" phone made by LG but the Optimus G might just be a good candidate for that, even ...
