Third time's the charm, right? LG and Prada are once again riding into the sunset with a co-designed cellphone. It's the third LG Prada in the line and naturally, it's the beefiest one yet. If the devil wears Prada, I might just have two pointy red ears and a spade-shaped tail.
The next tech spec hype for smartphones is all about high definition screens — the ones with insane 1280x720 resolutions that destroy the iPhone 4S's comparatively lower 960x640 Retina Display and shatters the qHD screens in smartphones like the Motorola Droid Razr. Meet LG's Nitro HD, a 4G Android smartphone itching for your dollar.
UPDATE: LG's requested the photo of the sexy TV be taken down. 3D TVs keep getting thinner and thinner with all those fancy LEDs, OLEDs and trying to hide all the components in their stands. Thin is nice, but most...
Smartphones with crazy high resolutions are coming — for real now. The first smartphone with a 1280x720 resolution screen isn't from Samsung or Sony Ericsson, it's actually from LG and its 4.5-inch screen LG Optimus LTE U+. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
Haven't we gone over this before? 2D content converted into 3D is almost guaranteed to be poor. It sucks for movies, it sucks for video games and it sucks for slapped together 3D photos. LG's special 2D to 3D converter for 3D smartphones can't be good for 3D as a format.
Computer mice come in a zillion different shapes and sizes, but it's getting really ridiculous. First a calculator and scale get shoved into a mouse and now LG stuffs a scanner into one? How on earth does that even fit in there?
Daily readers will know that we have a love-hate relationship with 3D and the growing availability of glasses-free 3D gadgets. While it's certainly great to not have to don dorky eyewear, 3D on glasses-free devices have a limited field of view. LG's 20-inch 3D display solves that issue with a eye-tracking.
It's funny how new gadgets often pop up unexpectedly long before the manufacturer has a chance to make a big splash. This time it's a new LG branded dual-screen slider Android phone, which showed up at a London press event held by UK carrier Orange.
It seems like Google might not be so happy with how the Xoom debuted its Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet-optimized OS. Like its Nexus One and Nexus S smartphone, it would appear Google will once again have to step in and show everyone else how to build a proper Android 3.0-based tablet.
These days if you want a scoop on the latest tech news, you need to look in some pretty unlikely places. Last week we reported on a rumor that LG's upcoming G-Slate would have a 3D screen, and now it appears that a short glimpse of the tablet in a Korean K-pop video confirms the rumor.
