LG Optimus Vu 2 to be the couch potato dream as the first "all-in-one remote control" phone

LG Optimus Vu 2 to be the couch potato dream as the first
An infrared sensor and a Q Remote app to match it will be gracing the Optimus Vu 2, which is slated for release next month in Korea. The original Vu is coincidentally scheduled to make a global appearance next month with quad-core Tegra 3, as well as arrive on Verizon as the LG Intuition.

Whether or not the gloabl Vu will include that sensor and app combo that are in store for the second generation of the Vu is not clear at this point, but the idea is pretty nifty.

A lot of phones from the WinMo and Symbian dawn of the smartphone era included infrared sensors, which somehow fell from grace with the ascent of iOS and Android.

Recently we are seeing a tablet and smartphone resurgence of those little infrared buddies that allow us to command our TVs, AC units and home stereos without lifting our behinds from the couch.

Best of all, LG says the sensor and the Q Remote app will not work only with LG devices, but rather with any other brand out there, which sounds very promising. Moreover, you'll be able to access the app directly from the lock screen, without getting into home screen details.

Let me go straight....
LG Intuition is the Verizon's version of Optimus Vu
LG Optimus Vu 2 is the Korean version
and LG Optimus Vu is the international version...Right??
And all of the version will have that infrared sensor and Q remote app or only Optimus Vu and Vu 2 will??
