LG Optimus T hitting T-Mobile on November 3 for $30

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on October 25th, 2010

US carriers with brand new smartphones for $30 on contract? We’re talking about LG’s Optimus T, featuring a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 3 megapixel cam, and pre-loaded Swype with Android 2.2.

If you want to get that $29.99 price, obviously you’ll need to sign up for a new two-year contract with a qualifying data plan, and then wait patiently for a $50 mail-in rebate. The phone goes on sale Wednesday, November 3 and comes in black or burgundy colors. I’m not digging the burgundy myself.

LG puts tablet plans on hold, will wait for next Android version

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on October 4th, 2010

We have heard that Android 2.2 isn’t well suited for tablet devices and apparently LG feels the same way as we now hear that an unnamed LG official has claimed that the company will not be producing an Android 2.2 tablet.

They want the best version of Android for their tablet and apparently that isn’t Froyo. It matches what we’ve heard about Motorola planning to release its Android-powered tablet with Android 3.0 as well. When LG does release their tablets, they will perform better for having waited.

LG 31-inch OLED TV

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on September 3rd, 2010

LG’s 31-inch OLED TV has been showing off at IFA 2010. It measures just 2.9mm thin, which is pretty amazing. But that thinness comes at a price.How about £6,000? It is coming in March of next year.

Some features include Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and a contrast ratio that allows it to be viewed from nearly any angle. If you like them thin, then it is money well spent. Everything else in your home will look huge in comparison.
