    According to Verizon's site, and we quote, the LG Revolution "is a major wow–machine. Superior speed is found when the 1GHz Snapdragon™ Processor and LG's 4G LTE modem combined with Verizon's 4G LTE Network. This power–trio makes it possible to download movies and games in seconds, shoot HD videos and share them instantly, seamlessly multitask and browse the web. Honestly, after one day with this device, you'll see mobile technology in a whole new way." Starting with this unboxing, we intend to see just how we'll be looking at mobile technology differently, good or bad. The LG ...

    With the LG Revolution being made available yesterday at Verizon for $249.99 on two-year contract, developers at RootzWiki have already gotten their hands on it and started tearing it apart. One of the first goals was to obtain superuser access and that goal was quickly achieved. Surprisingly, LG was lax in their security and left an old, well known vulnerability in the system. The "rageagainstthecage" exploit was developed by Sebastian Krahmer who has more recently developed a similar exploit to obtain root on Gingerbread. The newer exploit was not required for LG Revolution, as the Froyo ...

    Sure, you can pull a little slight-of-Android-hand and get Netflix's new streaming app to work on a non-approved smartphone, but luckily for the many Android users who just want to download an app and have it work - no fiddling required - Netflix is busy expanding the list of approved devices. Its most recent update, published to the Market today, adds support for three more smartphones. When the app first launched, it supported streaming playback on the following Androids: • HTC Incredible with Android 2.2 • HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3 • HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2 • HTC G2 ...

    The LG revolution, Verizon's first voice-over-LTE-capable device, will be available on May 26 for $249.99. The Revolution is also one of the thickest smartphones we've ever held; those looking for a thinner Verizon LTE device should consider the Droid Charge. The phone runs on Android 2.2 with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with 512MB, plus there is a 16GB pre-loaded microSD card for storage. The display is 4.3" with WVGA 800x480 resolution. The camera on the back is 5MP, and the front-facing camera is 1.3MP. There's also an HDMI output which can feed 720p to a flat panel or projector. ...

    The LG Revolution on Verizon LTE may have missed its chance to be the smartphone that would introduce the Android community to streaming Netflix video, but there are still plenty of firsts left for the handset; it's been tipped to be the first phone on Verizon to use its LTE connection for regular voice calls in addition to data. That capability is still a bit of a ways off, expected to arrive via update sometime next year, but what about the Revolution itself - when will it get here? It missed the May 12 date we heard rumored for it, but now there's a chance it will arrive on May 26, same ...

    After an early leak, Netflix teased us when its Android app all of a sudden started working, letting subscribers briefly stream its content to their smartphones. Since that brief window at the end of March, things have been largely quiet, as Netflix prepared a list of compatible Androids and readied for the app's official release, supposedly to happen after the app premiered on the LG Revolution. Well, the Revolution was rumored to arrive today, but we haven't seen it do so yet. Netflix must be in no mood wait even longer, as it's gone ahead with publishing its app anyway, now available in ...

    May 12 is the day to watch for and circle in your Calendar if the information acquired by Droid-life is accurate. Apparently, Motorola Droid X^2, LG Revolution and HTC Trophy will all see the light of day next Tuesday while you'll have to wait for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play some three more weeks. Both the HTC Trophy and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play have been listed online at Verizon and the catalog now also features the LG Revolution. All of these display a "coming soon" tag. The Motorola Droid X Squared is yet to appear online. So here are the possible dates: May 12 for Motorola Droid ...

    File this under rumor with a capital R: the latest shots of the LG Revolution display a date of May 25, 2011, which may suggest that Verizon will release it on that day. Such a move would not be unprecedented: both HTC and Samsung are known to use launch or release dates in press image screenshots, and even LG itself did so as recently as the Optimus 2X, first outing the phone in a December 13th, 2010 press release. However, there are probably even more examples of the company not employing such a tactic, so perhaps we're grasping at straws here. First introduced as part of Verizon's ...

    If you've been eyeing a smartphone that's lined-up to arrive with Verizon but have been a bit nervous about what your dream phone will end up costing, we may have some relief in store for you, as a leaked copy of the pricing structure for several upcoming Verizon models has arrived. While some of the prices are a relief, if only because they don't seem too over-inflated, a few stand out as models for which Verizon thinks you'll pay a premium. The Droid Charge is still listed at $300, the same as on the last price sheet that leaked out, making it one of the carrier's most expensive ...

    LG and Verizon introduced the LG Revolution Android smartphone with the occasion of this year's CES back at the beginning of the year and now, three months later, the smartphone was captured while being tested out before the actual release.

According to the Verizon leaked roadmap, the LG Revolution should be available at the beginning of May. Running Google Android 2.2 Froyo (at the moment, hopefully soon to be updated to Gingerbread), the LG Revolution is a 4G ...

    While there is a way to switch between 3G and 4G on Verizon's HTC Thunderbolt -- accessing the dialer and calling *#*#4636#*#* -- there is now an application called LTE OnOFF in the Android Market that toggles the connection on or off. Other than that, it's nothing out of the ordinary, just your typical 4G LTE toggle for that enables you to quickly turn the connection off or back on. According to the description, there's a toggle widget coming soon which will be a great addition for Thunderbolt owners -- should also work on other Verizon LTE phones like the Droid Bionic, Charge and ...

    Looks like Verizon's future short term roadmap has been leaked and it contains orientative dates, subject to change, of the upcoming devices the carrier has in store for April and May. According to the table attached, April 7 is the date to watch for Samsung's 4G LTE device, called the Droid Charge, with its 4.3-inch display and4G LTE compatibility. Same day the Casio Commando (image) should hit too, a rugged Android device a la Motorola Defy. A week after, on April 14, it's time for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play which we knew to expect on the carrier. April 15 looks to be the date for the ...

    LG is set to follow in Palm's footsteps as it begins offering the option to charge its smartphones wirelessly via electromagnetic induction with the LG Wireless Charging Pad. The $70 gadget measures 6.29" x 3.54" and gives you a place to plop down your phone for its nightly charge without needing to fiddle with any wires. The status of both the Charging Pad and the phone's battery are displayed via LED notifications, letting you know when the charging cycle completes. Fulton Innovation showed off the tech behind the Charging Pad at the MWC earlier this year, using the LG Revolution as a ...

    LG's Revolution is poised to make a big impression on smartphone buyers, as it's in line to be the first Android allowed to stream Netflix content, as well as to be the first Verizon device to use voice-over-LTE once the service becomes available. The first round of FCC documentation for the Revolution has now been published, including a document discussing a missing feature we hadn't touched upon in previous Revolution coverage: wireless charging. Charging phones by means of magnetic induction is a bit of an under-deployed feature, notably popping up in Palm hardware. In February at the ...

    Qualcomm has shed a little more light on what lies in store for Netflix on Android, reiterating some earlier claims about the app finally coming to Snapdragon-based systems, but creating some new uncertainty over the potential for the Netflix app to ever arrive on currently-available hardware. Last month we learned that the determining factor for which Android phones get Netflix when is going to be the processor under the hood. While full details of how everything will work haven't been made public, presumably the app will require a DRM implementation that is tailored to specific families ...
