LG Intuition is announced, coming to Verizon on September 6
So, it turns out that the rumors were on the right track. Starting September 6, Verizon will start offering the newly-announced LG Intuition at a price of $199 on-contract. The smartphone is a re-branded version of the LG Optimus Vu (our review here) tailored to work on the carrier's 4G LTE wireless network.

With its 5-inch LCD screen, the LG Intuition falls straight into phablet category right next to the Samsung Galaxy Note and the upcoming Galaxy Note II. What makes it somewhat different, however, is its 4:3 display aspect ratio, which should make surfing the web or reading digital books more convenient. Its resolution is 1024 by 768 pixels for sharp-looking text and detailed images. 

Inside the LG Intuition runs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. On its back resides an 8-megapixel camera for capturing those special moments, and a front-facing 1.3MP shooter makes video-chats possible.

Software-wise, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes pre-installed with a bunch of additional apps, courtesy of LG. The Tag+ app takes advantage of the Intuition's NFC support – it allows actions to be performed and profiles to be switched seamlessly as soon as the device is tapped on an NFC sticker, two of which come included. With the QuickMemo app, users can take notes on the fly, either with the included Rubberdium capacitive stylus, or with their finger, and then easily share them via e-mail, text message, or their favorite social network.

So in case the LG Intuition sparks your interest, check it out on Verizon's online store this September 6 or at one of the carrier's retail outlets on September 10. Buyers who place orders between September 6 and September 10 will get a free LG Tone stereo Bluetooth headset, simply for being awesome.

To me I am looking at only the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the rumored quad-core S4 Pro HTC phablet, the LG Optimus G & the new Nexus'. This phone is a little bit too late. Yes it has a Krait S4 but it doesn't have the Adreno 320 so it definitely makes it a HARD buy when better is literally around the corner.
