Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2010

LG has unveiled a new notebook this week called the Xnote P210.

The bezels on the notebook measure about 299mm horizontal and 192mm vertical.

It also comes with an Intel Core i5 470UM CPU running at 1.33GHz and uses Intel HD graphics. Other features include 4GB of RAM and 320GB of storage. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

We already knew that it was coming to Korea in January. Now we have word that LG’s Tegra 2 Optimus 2X will hit Europe in January of 2011, with it’s 4-inch display and 1080p video recording capability. The news comes from a press release which talks about the inclusion of 25 audio files (including 15 custom ringtones) from film composer Ennio Morricone.

That’s right, the man who scored Sergio Leone’s “Spaghetti Westerns.” Seems like an odd partnership, but hey, those are some darn good tunes.

LG has a hit on it’s hands with the Optimus One. One million units sold isn’t big news these days for smartphone sales, but when you reach that number quickly it should tell you something. LG’s Optimus One has sold a million in just 40 days after initial launch.

LG announces the C320 Lady, for the ladies

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2010

The LG C320 is aimed at the fairer sex, with a feminine design and colors to match. It sports a QWERTY keyboard that slides out, a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, an integrated MP3 player, FM radio, and a microSD expansion slot.

Then there’s the pre-installed social stuff, like Facebook and Twitter. It’s just a basic phone designed to look cute. The price and availability of the LG C320 Lady is unknown. Why do they call them the fairer sex anyway? It’s hardly fair that she expects me to turn my PS3 off and spend time with her, instead of earning new weapons in Call Of Duty.

According to a filing in the FCC’s database, the H1000B tablet will eventually hit the US market sporting 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth and Windows 7. Word is that it also has an SD card reader.

It must have one, but we don’t see a peripheral port in the pic. We are expecting a CES 2011 debut, but who knows, we might learn more before then. It looks pretty sexy at any rate.
