telephones are boooring.
A usable pocket computer with a quality camera and a functioning phone as built-in accessories:
What a CONCEPT!

I agree, just hope that the 'functioning phone' actually functions when you really need to call for an emergency. To me the capability of calling, meaning good antenna, strong signal and fewer dropped phone call, is still king on a cellphone and I don't want to sacrifice it for other features.
This as a general rule, not referring to this big LG.

This is basically a rip-off of the Samsung Galaxy Note, simple. It's also not a coincidence that LG's Optimus UI looks almost exactly like TouchWiz...not to mention that they've implemented their own equivalent to the S Memo app found on the Galaxy Note. I hope Samsung sue them...

You probably won't see that happen, for the reason that Samsung doesn't or won't backstab nor pull down their own compatriots.

Actually, if u go by history, Samsung copied LG foe their ui. the LG ui looked like they way it is now since e cookie and LG has been using it ever since. Samsung has been using a older ui which only had 3 docks below. Samsung also copied this from LG. the first LG touch screens had tt 3 app dock below first. later LG changed it to what it looks like now while Samsung continued using e old 3app dock ui. samsung only changed the design of touchwiz well after LG changed theirs. now i know u might not believe me, but tt is e truth. so if anyone is to be suing, it should be LG suing Samsung. the reason why ppl think LG copied Samsung is because Samsung has sold more phones than LG

in all fairness, how is that supposed to be used as phone? Are you supposes to hold it with two hands while you make a call?

This is what I don't get. They are telling the American cell phone users about this phone that going to Korea. But there's no news that it's coming to America. Then what the hell is the point of letting us know if we aren't even going to get it? Stupid idiots.

This is a site about the latest phone technology. And as you probably don't know, technology is UNIVERSAL!
Like it or not, they're doing their job and they're doing it well.
You're the only stupid idiot here!

i can see you are one of the not so intelligent Americans. If you want the phone, you can still get it shipped in from where ever.

they just seem.. uninspired. and the 1024 resolution on the fatboy is going to cause display issues with incompatible apps.
