More Verizon LG Optimus Vu images surface, launch looks imminent
Our source also tells us that after an ESN swap, the Verizon Optimus Vu was a fully functional device.
Earlier, we saw the 5-inch LG phablet run on Ice Cream Sandwich, which is good news given that the Korean unit we just reviewed recently was based on the dated Gingerbread.
The device is expected to run on a Snapdragon S3 chip with a1GB of RAM, and come with 32 gigs of internal storage and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Of course, its biggest highlight is the 5-inch 768 x 1024-pixel 4:3 screen which is convenient for reading, but not the best fit for watching online video mostly encoded in 16:9 aspect ratio.
Check out the images below and let us know - will you be getting this device if it comes on Verizon soon?

Snapdragon S3 chip with a1GB of RAM, and come with 32 gigs of internal storage and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Of course, its biggest highlight is the 5-inch 768 x 1024. The specs. are very low compared to a new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which will result in a lower sale volume of LG Optimus Vu.

Agreed!! Besides, at just 5.0", I would easily take the GS3 and forego 0.20". I'm still holding out for G-Note 2 (or, G-Note on Verizon) but, if it doesn't come soon I'm going back to a RAZR; this DROID CHARGE is crAp and my iPhone 4S is just a music player.

Even it can't match my gnote how the hell it can match note 2............

the Note2 is still vaporware, I don't see why some act like shipments of the things are arriving at carrier stores right now when it hasn't even debuted at any trade shows or been tested by the FCC yet.

I dont know What the designers at LG were smoking while designing this device. I don't have anything against phablets, in fact I really love my glaxy note, but this phone looks very odd.......... Hope LG are able to correct everything wrong with device, in the same way they corrected their mistakes on optimus 2X with the launch of optimus 4X................

I'll give LG the benefit of the doubt as they aren't as seasoned in the smart phone area as the other big time players...BUT, i'd probably not get this phablet. Seems like just another 5" screen copy, nothing exciting.

Totally waiting and wishing for the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon..... Probably just a pipe dream seeing as we're getting this crap.
