Big, huge, bigger: giant LG Optimus Vu officially announced, supports a stylus
The LG Optimus Vu has been officially unveiled by LG days before MWC, the biggest show dedicated to phones and the mobile industry, kicks off. And in the best traditions set by the Samsung Galaxy Note, the LG Optimus Vu is huge. 

With a 5-inch screen with an unusual aspect ratio of 4:3, it catches the eye, but we kept on wondering whether such a huge device can really become the mainstream. Here are all the details about it:

- a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels,
- thin 8.5mm body,
- screen supports a stylus,
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor,
- 8MP camera,
- LTE connectivity,
- huge 2080mAh battery,
- Gingerbread initially, to get updated to ICS within 3 months after launch.

Initially, the Optimus Vu is set to land on Korean carriers SK Telecom and LG+. The Optimus Vu release date is March 2012. What do you think about supersized smartphones like the Vu, is bigger size what you’re looking for and does the resolution make a difference?
