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.

LG is already the record holder for the largest production OLED model, but they aren’t content with it so next month, they will break their own record and double that size to 31-inches, showing it off on the showfloor of the IFA electronics show in Germany.

Samsung showed off a 31-inch OLED of their own a few years ago, but that one never made it to the market, so if LG’s does, they are the king of OLED panels.

LG’s latest smartphone to hit South Korea is the Optimus Z. It will be available from local carriers SK Telecom and KT. The device runs Android 2.1 with the option to upgrade it to 2.2 before 2011. Performance should not be a problem thanks to its 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

LG to release several Windows Phone 7 handsets in 2010

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

Once again an LG representative has confirmed that a Windows Phone 7-powered handset is on the way and due in September. That handset is expected to be called the Pacific. The company also said that more WP7 devices are coming before year’s end.

LG is the third largest cellphone maker, behind Nokia and Samsung. Its phone shipments are slowly increasing, but it has fallen into losses due to a lack of smartphones, which has allowed Apple, RIM and other companies to grow much faster. Most of LG’s efforts this past year have focused on Android with only small efforts spent on Windows Mobile.
