LG bends the rules and says the LG Optimus Vu sold 1 million units in South Korea

LG bends the rules and says the LG Optimus Vu sold 1 million units in South Korea
Earlier on Monday,we told you that the Samsung GALAXY Note IIhad sold 1 million units in South Korea over 90 days. But Samsung isn't the only South Korean manufacturer to sell 1 million units of a phablet in its own back yard. LG has announced that it has has sold 1 million units of the LG Optimus Vu in South Korea. With a 5 inch screen (as opposed to the 5.5 inch panel on the Samsung GALAXY Note II), what really makes LG's offering different is the 4:3 aspect ratio which makes the screen somewhat boxy and and the device hard to hold.

We should add that while both the Samsung GALAXY Note II and the LG Optimus Vu both sold 1 million units in South Korea, Samsung accomplished the feat in 90 days while it took LG three times as long. And it would seem that LG is combining sales of both its LG Optimus Vu and LG Optimus Vu II units to reach the 1 million mark. That would seem to muddy the comparison with Samsung's model.
