Republic Wireless gained some notoriety a few months back for offering a $19/month phone plan for unlimited-ish data, voice and text. The only hang up before was that Republic Wireless limited you on what unlimited truly meant. Not anymore though. Now, unlimited TRULY means unlimited. And it still only costs 19 bucks.
The Motorola Atrix 4G and the LG Optimus 2X both feature the same Tegra 2 Chipset that uses the same 1.2 Ghz, dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, the same GeForce ULP GPU and the same version of Android (2.2.1). Yet, when benchmarked, the Optimus 2X outgunned the Atrix in nearly every test (the Galaxy S even jumped…
Samsung's head of product management in its UK mobile division has gone on record as saying the company has no plans to battle rival LG in the 3D cell phone sector. There's no point or demand and it makes phones needlessly thicker. That's the summary. Here are his actual words:
It was hardly a secret, but today LG's Optimus 3D was borne into a world where dual-core processors and dual cameras are the norm. Seriously, think back to your first cellphone (a Nokia?), and consider how far we've come.
Someone at LG decided it would be a great idea to tie in a video of their LG Optimus Pad tablet with Optimus Prime. Not only that, they have fake Optimus Prime fight fake Megatron, who's not-so-subtly the robot manifestation of Apple's iPad. None of this makes any sense, which is why it is kind of incredible that it…
Another pre-Mobile World Congress teaser trailer has leaked out, this time for LG's Optimus 3D. There are no accompanying specs or details, but we do get to see the back of the phone. It has two cameras, as you might expect. It's a slim black rectangle, as you also might expect. We'll see it in more detail when…
Add dual-core Tegra 2 innards to the list of things we now know about LG's impending tablet—which is due in January in an 8.9-inch size. The leak came from an LG rep, who also said it'd run Honeycomb.
Look, I'm not saying the LG Optimus T is the fanciest phone in the world. But it's hard to argue with a $30 entry point to the latest and greatest version of Android.
That mysterious Optimus Z phone from the other week has been formally introduced by LG, but for now it's only getting a release in the land of kimchi and soju—Korea. A global release is expected later, however.
Two fairly-sedate Android phones from LG, both with larger-sounding names, have been announced: the Optimus One, and Optimus Chic. LG informed us "Optimus" means "best" in Latin, but as Latin's a dying language, that's not quite having the desire effect.
After hearing nary a peep from the Art Lebedev guys about their Optimus Popularis keyboard from years back, they've taken to their LiveJournal (LiveJournal!!!) blog to say production will begin "later this year," with "the release likely in 2011."
We've seen a ton of Core i5 notebooks recently, all loaded with Intel's impotent integrated graphics, which are part of the chip. Now, Nvidia's Optimus enables PCs to switch automatically between Intel's crappy integrated graphics and Nvidia's beefier graphics cards.
