    It looks like the floodgates are open when it comes to rumors about the next Nexus phone(s); just hours after we shared the latest leaked specs with you, giving us a little insight into just how the supposed LG Nexus would differ from the already-revealed Optimus G, a couple new details have arrived, focusing on just how the smartphone would launch. Those last rumors mentioned that the phone might go up for sale sometime around mid-November. Now CNET's coming forward with a source of its own claiming that the phone will be formally announced near the end of October. That would be ...

    There have been a whole mess of rumors lately about what to expect from Google as far as its Nexus lineup goes, and a good number of them have been looking to LG's Optimus G as one model we could potentially see a new Nexus phone based on. From what we've heard so far, it's clear this wouldn't be just a renamed Optimus G, but besides a re-styled case, it hasn't been obvious just what would be different. Some new rumored specs have just come to our attention, though, that start to show how this LG Nexus could diverge from the Optimus G. While by and large these specs have been lining up, ...

    Will we be seeing a whole flood of assorted Nexus phones this fall? That's what some rumors have been saying for months now, and as we settle-in on the right timeframe, some of the headlining models from various manufacturers are being tapped as candidates for one of these Nexus devices. That's certainly been true for LG's quad-core S4 Optimus G, for which we just learned about US carrier availability. A new rumor concerns one source's claims of some first-hand interactions with just such an LG Nexus. Supposedly, this source isn't a Google employee himself, but had the brief opportunity to ...

    LG's quad-core Optimus G is ultimately destined for US shores, but just how till it get here? We've known to expect the phone to arrive sometime in November, after the handset launches in Japan this month, but haven't had access to the details. The picture's still far from complete, but a couple US carriers just made it clear that the Optimus G will be a part of their lineups in the near future. LG released a statement confirming AT&T and Sprint as homes for the Optimus G, with AT&T separately preparing its own statement to announce the news. Unfortunately, this far out everyone ...

    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 ...
