LG Vu 3 phablet makes first video hands-on appearance
Many of you may consider the odd 4:3 aspect ratio display on the Vu 3, LG's latest phablet, a functional (not to mention design) aberration. Regardless, the device is out and it is already making rounds in its home country, so it's only a matter of time until a proper hands-on with the device pops up, and we probably should stress the hands part. That's plural, because as you can imagine, the device is quite boxy meaning that one-handed operation is simply out of the question.
Whether the LG Vu 3 will go on sale internationally remains to be seen, though we've seen indications that this time around it might. Of course, exactly who LG will be targeting is kind of a mystery, seeing as most people are likely to walk right past the boxy exterior of the Vu 3. Of course, the phablet isn't all bad, not at all actually, especially if you consider the internals on the device. It's got the most powerful Qualcomm chipset currently in use – the Snapdragon 800 – and also comes with 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear shooter and a dedicated stylus.
So, have a look and let us know whether we're the only ones a little dumbfounded by the Vu 3's purpose.

Might sound stupid for most of you but i like the aspect ratio...i do not watch 16:9 movies at all, but for work, browsing and photos taken from dslr watching is just superB!!! Pen feature makes me believe that this is even better than Note1 which had the best aspect ratio for me 1280x800 - i do not like N2/N3 16:9 for proper Spen use. If it had the same Pen technology as Note. The pen doesnt look like wacom as used on Note.

It looks like a fat Note 2. How unoriginal.

I wish the screen was taller. I really liked the first 2 iterations of the Vu, but I always wanted a taller screen. If it weere 5.5" with a 4:3 aspect ratio, I would love that.
