LG Intuition pictured with Verizon branding and possible September 15th launch date

LG Intuition pictured with Verizon branding and possible September 15th launch date
Just the other day, we showed you a leaked ad that revealed Verizon's intention to call the LG Optimus Vu phablet, the LG Intuition. While we've seen the device before, we now have a  press photos of the unit wearing the Verizon logo and its 4G LTE insignia. Since Big Red had passed on the Samsung GALAXY Note, to the chagrin of its customers, the LG Intuition will be the carrier's first phablet since that category was first named.

The LG Intuition for Verizon

The LG Intuition for Verizon

While the 5 inch screen is slightly smaller than the 5.3 inch display on the Samsung GALAXY Note, the 4:3 aspect ratio gives the LG Intuition a square, more tablet-esque look than Samsung's phablet which comes off looking like a giant phone. And while we don't have a launch date for Verizon's LG Intuition, the picture of the model shows a date of September 15th on the screen. Using the date on a screenshot to determine the actual launch date of a device has had mixed results, but for now, that is all we have to go by.

Ironically, the day that we get to see what Verizon's variant of the LG Optimus Vu II looks like, we found out some information about the LG Optimus Vu 2, set for release next month in Korea. Armed with an infrared sensor and a Q remote app, the sequel to LG's phablet can double as a hard to lose remote for your television at home.

In the meantime, with the release of the press photo, how many of you Verizon customers out there are eagerly awaiting the LG Intuition?

Wasn't a fan of the Intuition. Got hands on with the Intuition and Spectrum 2 and Spectrum 2 was nice running ice cream but the Intuition is just to boxy for me.

I really hate this phone. I just really hate it. It's starting to grow on me, but even then, I absolutely hate it.

So wait a minute. I read an article that the Vu is the American variant of the original Vu in Korea. So while we get what is outdated, Korea gets the new one? Or are the getting the same? These articles are misleading. This is crazy. You know, I really wonder if these jackasses who make the decisions on who gets what phone is smoking crack or something stronger. This is outrageous. They passed on the Note and now, they probably are going to pass on the Note 2. What the f**k bro? The other thing is, even if they get the Note 2, and it should supposedly be released in october, knowing Screwizon, they will probably release it in like damn near December. Behind the rest of the world like they always are.
