The U.S. version of the LG Optimus Vu phablet is coming to Verizon and some leaked information sheets show a September 6th launch online for the device, followed by an all channels release on September 10th...

Anyway, this actually isn't that bad of a device. I thought that it was originally coming with a crappier processor and Gingerbread. I'll make sure to try it out...

Yeah I thought it was suposed to come with an older s3 processor

Hmmm. Not sure if I should spring for this or wait to see if the GN2 is coming to Verizon........

I'd rather wait for the Galaxy Note 2, more screen real estate in a more manageable form. Then again I'm the type to prefer 4:3 ratios on desktops/ laptops and phones should sport 16:9 or 16:10.
Hopefully the GN2 will be available on Verizon along with the HTC "Phablet" for a side by side comparison.

This is a great story that someone who writes for P.A can check into...any taker?. (Scott or Michael)
If possible find out what Samsung and their Atty thinks about this. LG iPad.

Nice find dude! Thumbs up!
"LG's new Digital iPad comes with an Integrated Web browser and Linux-based MP3 and MPEG4 players and can connect to the Internet over a wireless 802.11lb LAN that reaches up to 100 meters, according to the company. A spokesman for LG at CeBIT said that the product may come with other connectivity solutions, however, including possibly a "PDA style slot" for mobile phones."
Gee I wonder where did Apple got the "iPad" name inspiration...
Rather than just "iPad", I'd say the whole "iName" thing. Apple's iPod was announced 6-7 months after LG's "iPad" demonstation. So... someone liked that name branding, I guess.
The picture in that post looks too fuzy to tell, but it almost looks like a rectangle with round corners and a home button in the center ?

Yeah exactly my first impression. I was thinking why doesn't LG sue Apple, since they've already released an iPad device.

still kinda looks like a box so we'll have to see a review

It seems like this planet is about a year to late if it wants to compete with the note. Unless it unsubsidized price is $300 wich I doubt it should not do well especially if the note 2 is released on Verizon soon

I don't think the note 2 will make its way to vzw. Vzw is releasing the LG Intuition and supposedly releasing the 5inch HTC phablet. That pretty much says they're going to pass on the note 2 like how they passed on the note 1.

I agree it doesn't make much sense to have 3 phablets on one carrier but the specs of the LG and HTC phablets don't look like they can compete with the Note so maybe Verison will just be late to carry it hopefully not as late as Tmo was
19. cw0974 (Posts: 23; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
Tmobile users must be mad how they got the note very late and now the note 2 is being released. Vzw really missed out on passing on the note 1 and I think they are trying to make up for it with the LG and HTC phablets. The specs of the note 2 does look very appealing, especially the battery. I personally like the LG Intuition.

This is off subject but, is it really necessary to hire professional models just to hold smartphones?
20. cw0974 (Posts: 23; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
Isn't it better than having an old dude holding it?

unfortunatley this is to little to late verizon. We want the note 2. Making this phone slitely bigger then the sgs3 makes this pointless when the sgs 3 has better specs and is as ungly looking. I see this being a flop and then verizon being afraid of the next phablet hopefully im wrong.
