LG Mini GD880 Phone with 16:9 Aspect Ratio

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2010

Who’s this sexy beast? The LG Mini GD880, which runs LG’s S-Class OS, and not Android for some reason. Didn’t they get the memo, that everyone is going Android? I guess peer pressure doesn’t always work. Still this phone has some nice specs, like the 16:9 aspect ratio.

On a display of just 3.2-inches. We don’t know a lot about it, but we do know it has a 5.0-megapixel camera with face detection, Wi-Fi, and HSDPA 7.2Mbps connectivity.

LG goes retro with the Serie 1 CRT TV

Posted in Television by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2010

You won’t have to enter the way-back machine to check out what 1960′s TVs looked like. Just check out LGs Serie 1 television. The Serie 1 uses not-quite-2010 CRT technology and a 4:3 aspect ratio and a 14-inch screen.

A digital tuner gives you all the channels (If you want black and white, just push a button) and composite video connectivity so you can hook up your old game console. Check out those chrome legs and screen dials.

LG to release new Art Cinema XF2 in April

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2010

LG’s XF2 player ships in April with 1080p video and 5.1 audio output over HDMI and that’s just what we like to hear. That performance is exactly what we want. As far as compatibility there’s MPEG 1/2/4, h.264, Xvid, DivX, FLAC, WMA, AC3, and all the usuals.

The XF2 also supports subtitles and captions in several formats. The 500GB capacity is acceptable but not great when you consider the lack of a network interface. All in all, we like it, but the price is an issue.

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on January 7th, 2010

Recently Light Blue Optics unveiled a Holographic laser equipped Light Touch projector for interactive touchscreens images. Today LG has announced the CF3D, the world’s first full HD, 3D Single Lens Type Projector.

LG BD590, the First Blu-ray Player with an Integrated Hard Drive

Posted in Blu-ray by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2010

LG’s new Blu-ray player won’t rip and store your movies, but the BD590 is still pretty decent. The BD590 will store your music, photos, downloaded movies, rip CDs etc, via USB or Ethernet port, though apparently not through its 802.11n Wi-Fi connection for some reason.

Unfortunately, no DVD and Blu-ray archiving. Which isn’t surprising for legal reasons. Anyway 250GB isn’t ideal for ripping Blu-Ray movies.

It’s a radical departure from your standard external hard drive which is nice. One thing that we get sick of is boring design. This is not boring. That girl sure looks happy about it.

LG’s digital-TV-player phones headed for CES

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2009

LG never slows down. Lately they’ve been on a roll with digital media players, among other things. The players are expected to have better video playback compared to that we’ve seen so far on mobile players. And the company is planning to release three cellphones that support digital-TV-playback.

The phones will supposedly work flawlessly even when the user is traveling at speeds of up to 290 kmph. That’s a bold statement. The company is also working on chips that receive direct TV feeds. Hopefully we will learn more at CES.

lgexpoauthentecI really like it when my gadgets can do more than one thing and when my gadgets have hardware that can do more than one thing I get excited. AuthenTec is talking about its contribution to the LG eXpo smartphone.

The eXpo uses the AuthenTec smart sensor that not only reads fingerprints for security, but allows navigation too. The sensor is sort of like a track pad fingerprint reader combo.
