    The LG Optimus VU should be a decent competitor to last year's Samsung Galaxy Note even though it does't come with its own stylus. At five inches it falls in the "phablet" category but LG has tried a different approach. The main selling point of the phone is the 4:3 aspect ratio which should allow for better content viewing and note taking. However, you'll have to use finger input to take notes. The device itself is slim and rather fast thought the unit was running Gingerbread (Ice Cream Sandwich should be installed once the phone starts shipping).

    If 2011 was supposed to be the "year of the tablet," with over 100 new models announced at that year's CES alone, 2012 may be shaping up to be the year of the "phablet," the phone-tablet hybrid whose widespread usefulness has yet to be proven. While the survivors of the first battles of the tablet war have upgraded their normal-sized offerings, the novelty-generating buzz seems to be emanating from elsewhere. The spotlight currently sits on smaller devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note and LG Optimus Vu, and to a lesser extent, on rumors of devices with larger-than-10" screens. I'm not sure ...

    With the Mobile World Congress just about to commence in Barcelona, it should be no surprise that the companies preparing to demonstrate their latest handsets have been getting their gear together in preparation of the show. That much smartphone hardware all together in one place is just making it more and more likely that bits and pieces will leak out a little early, giving us some teases of what we can hope to see once things really get started. Italian site Telefonio recently found itself with just such an opportunity, and has managed to capture plenty of pictures and video of LG's ...

    The LG Optimus VU popped up two weeks ago showing off its uncommon screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio which we've later on seen pictured side-by-side with the Samsung Galaxy Note, a 5.3-incher with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The South Korean manufacturer went public and unveiled the LG Optimus VU to the world, a device which will be definitely showcased at the upcoming MWC together with the X3, CX2 and probably the Miracle. The LG Optimus VU is 8.5mm thick and packs a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, five-inch IPS screen with XGA resolution (768 x 1024 pixels), 1GB of RAM, 32GB of ...

    LG revealed plans for a new Android earlier this week, and one with quite the unusual display, at that. Instead of the widescreen aspect ratios we're used to seeing on the majority of smartphones and tablets, the LG Optimus Vu will instead have a screen with a more traditional 4:3 ratio, like on the iPad. We got to see a promo video for the phone, as well as image of the Vu in the flesh. Today we continue to get a closer look at the handset, with images comparing its form factor against another Android. In the image above, you can see the Vu on the left with its 4:3 screen, and the Samsung ...

    Just yesterday we've heard of the LG Miracle, an upcoming Windows Phone offering from the South Korean manufacturer, and it looks like it's not the only new phone the company is working on. What you see in the image above is the LG Optimus VU. The teaser video below doesn't give out much info about the device except for its main selling point: a five-inch screen. This would be regarded as massive if it weren't for the Samsung Galaxy Note; however, what's unique about the Optimus VU is the fact that it uses a 4:3 aspect ratio instead of the conventional 16:9 (or similar) wide-screen ...
