LG Optimus Vu for Verizon spotted running Ice Cream Sandwich
If there was any doubt that the LG Optimus Vu was headed to Verizon, that should be all gone now as the phablet was just recently taken for a photo shootout, flaunting that Big Red and 4G LTE insignia. But the images themselves are not that exciting. After all, we got to play with a unit as well during our LG Optimus Vu review. What's more interesting is that Verizon will, apparently, release the Optimus Vu with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, not the aging Android 2.3 Gingerbread. 

That is about all that the images revealed, so we are not sure whether Verizon's model will undergo any changes in terms of hardware. In case it doesn't, we can expect a dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor ticking inside, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera, and, of course, a gigantic, 5-inch display with resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels and 4:3 aspect ratio.

We aren't exactly sure when the LG Optimus Vu is coming to Verizon, but given that the device was already given the green light by the FCC, an announcement might not be that far off.

she meant the 3rd Generation Snapdragon not the SIII. that's why i use the Roman number for the Samsung and not a regular 3.

Still thumbs up for you for coining the term ugly for this phone even if you misunderstood the 's3' which is talking about the old version chipset.. But seriously. It's one ugly phone. Can't compete with note..

they might be mistaken but it makes more sense for it to have an S4. o:

Yeah, it is actually a 1.5GHz S3, not an S4. Sorry about that.

I complain about devices being too narrow but this I can't imagine holding in my hand, let alone on my pocket. Its just too wide, where the Note is at least somewhat usable with one hand and can fit into your skinny jeans still.

Specs don't matter when it comes to LG, I haven't seen an LG phone i have liked since the Voyager. The latest LG GB phones have been crap. I can't say anything about the 4X but this just meh. I'd take a last years Note over this any day.

The LG Vu feature phone on ATT was the best basic phone I've ever owned. As much as I've been hesitant to get an LG smartphone, the Spectrum is a sold phone and I think I might have to give this one a chance.
