LG is getting close to showing off at CES, the Panorama Note feature that will be available on the LG Optimus Vu: II and other select LG models in 2013. With the wide 3:1 ratio of the "canvas" you can take notes, or scribble away to your heart's content. The resulting image can be scrolled, moved or edited. It's like having a huge piece of paper to write on and using just a little piece of the paper at a time. The image can be zoomed in 5.8x affording you a good close-up look at your handiwork while at the same time, you can easily move arond the screen using cursors. A Mini Map lets you see exactly where you are at in the original note.
LG is providing an experimental area at CES where users can check out LG's latest UX improvements including the multitasking users' best friend, QSlide. Other improvements like Live Zooming and Dual Screen Dual Play can also be seen at the zone. The Korean based manufacturer will also make the international debut of its Vu: Talk feature at CES.
"Panorama Note is just one of many user experience features that LG will be introducing this year to differentiate our mobile devices. Our UX features will be deeply integrated with our devices to take advantage of the smartphones’ specific hardware. The battle of smartphone specs will continue but we’re going to take the competition to the next level."-Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO, LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 – LG Electronics will introduce a new feature, Panorama Note, on the Optimus Vu: II for the first time at the 2013 International CES, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Panorama Note allows users to create extra wide 3:1 ratio memos and drawings directly on smartphone displays.
Panorama Note feature was developed from the analog philosophy of scribbling freely on a large canvas and allows users to write, draw or jot notes while navigating the wide 3:1 ratio image. Panorama Note features 5.8 times zooming capability, easy navigation of the screen both vertically and horizontally via cursors and a Mini Map that shows the location of the viewed image in the original image.
“Panorama Note is just one of many user experience features that LG will be introducing this year to differentiate our mobile devices,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our UX features will be deeply integrated with our devices to take advantage of the smartphones’ specific hardware.
