HTC Fireball and LG Spectrum Could Be Verizon’s First 4G LTE World Phones

HTC Fireball and LG Spectrum Could Be Verizon’s First 4G LTE World Phones
News from Gotta Be Mobile:

It appears that Verizon might have a couple of 4G LTE world phones up its sleeve in the form of the oft-rumored LG Spectrum and the recently leaked HTC Fireball. Both screenshots here, which list the phones in Verizon’s system, show an ‘O’ underneath the Global Phone listing. And while this doesn’t necessarily guarantee that they will be world phone’s, there’s a chance. ‘O’ is better than an ‘N’ which would mean flat out no.

To date, Verizon has not released a global ready 4G LTE smartphone.

The LG Spectrum aka Revolution 2 is likely going to be a phone similar to AT&T’s LG Nitro HD. It’s also assumed to be the successor to the LG Revolution, LG’s first 4G LTE offering on Verizon.

Will LG Nitro HD Outrun Motorola Droid RAZR?
News from International Business Times:

The LG Nitro HD, which was made available on AT&T‘s network from Dec. 4, is expected to face immense pressure from Motorola’s Droid RAZR, as Verizon is offering an additional $ 100 off on the Droid XYBOARD Tablet when customers buy the Motorola smartphone.

Taking advantage of LG’s new proprietary True HD technology, Nitro HD’s 4.5-inch AH-IPS (Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching) display supports resolutions up to 1280 x 720 pixels and offers unrivaled color accuracy, brightness, battery efficiency and performance.

LG said Nitro HD’s 500 nit display luminance allows for clear viewing in direct sunlight and RGB stripe pixels deliver incredibly accurate true-to-life color rendering.

LG to trim presence in low-cost phone segment

LG to trim presence in low-cost phone segment
News from Economic Times:

NEW DELHI: LG India, the country’s largest consumer durables maker, will sell less of low-cost mobile handsets as a falling rupee threatens the viability of the category.

“The category is not giving us margins. So, we will have minimum presence in the low-cost segment and focus more on the premium category,” LG India MD Soon Kwon said. LG will now focus on handsets priced Rs 4,000 upwards.

Domestic handset maker Olive Mobiles, too, will cut its presence in the sub- Rs2,000 category because the rupee’s record 15% fall against the US dollar this year has made imports costlier and sales of low-margin, massmarket products unviable.

Most mobile phone companies, including LG and Olive, import handset for the Indian market. Kwon said that the industry will see a shift towards smartphones next year and companies not present in the higher-end category…………… continues on Economic Times

LG Prada 3.0 review
News from Northern Voices Online:

The new LG smartphone Prada 3.0 sounds pretty glamorous. It is now time to see if the glamrous name inhabits equally attractive specs and functions. Going by the response it has generated, it seems to be a phone that might come in fashion.

Prada 3 is being touted as a pretty decent phone, sans any superficiality that inevitably gets tagged with a fashion brand.

The Prada 3 boasts OMAP 1GHz dual-core, dual-channel processor ramped up by 1GB of RAM. Other typical Android specs happen to be an 8GB of internal storage with a sliding hatch to protect the microUSB slot at the top that slips back and forth with an easy feel, space for a microSD card, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 and  Wi-Fi b/g/n.

The phone gives a good manageable feel to the hand with the Saffiano décor on the back and the curved edges at 8.5mm depth. The shape and design speaks well of the brand name!

Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 Coming to more smart phones, tablets
News from Northern Voices Online:

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus may be the first smart phone with new Android OS, but Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 is Coming to more smart phones and tablets

Android users have now a reason to celebrate and they can feel amply spoilt for choices as Google is rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich to more devices. But Android customers, discerning that they are, have already begun asking that when the good news will be actually implemented, instead of going in a celebratory mood instantly.

Google’s latest update that was rolled out starting Dec. 16, GSM/UMTS Nexus S devices with ICS have been updated.

The update Android 4.0.3 boasts a number of optimizations and bug fixes for phones and tablets. However, despite GSM/UMTS Nexus S devices getting the upgrade, so far Google hasn’t said when it will roll out to the CDMA version of the phone, i.e. the Nexus S 4G on Sprint.

Leak: LG Optimus Black and Samsung Replenish coming to Boost Mobile
News from IntoMobile:

Boost Mobile, one of America’s more popular prepaid operators, is going to offer the LG Optimus Black and Samsung Replenish at some point in 2012 according to press photos that were leaked to PocketNow. They don’t have any specific details as to the the exact release date or pricing, but considering the Optimus Black is going to turn a year old next month, and the Replenish has been out for 18 months already, we can’t imagine either of these two devices being terribly expensive. So are actually any good? The Optimus Black has one thing going for it, it’s insanely thin. Thinner than an iPhone 4/4S at just 9.2 mm. Knowing how Boost Mobile has offered devices in the past, they’re also likely to tell LG to take off as much of their Android customizat…………… continues on IntoMobile

Prada and LG peg up third fashion phone
News from Register:

The tech meets trendsetter partnership between the fashion tour de force Prada and Korean electronics giant LG continues where others have failed. Indeed, that was the message both companies were pleased to convey as the third Prada phone by LG was unveiled with some seriousness at Claridges in London yesterday.

At first glance you’ll not really notice anything special about the phone – it appears to be just another sleek 4.3in touchscreen handset, but turn it over and you’re greeted by Prada’s signature Saffiano pattern in black on the back along with the distinctive logo. Go a step further and turn it on and the Android 2.3 OS has been res-skinned with eye-catching black, grey and white icons. And before you ask, yes it will be upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Given that that the last Prada-LG handset collaboration appeared in 2008, you might wonder what took them so long? The difference here is that rather than delivering a…………… continues on Register

LG Optimus Slider (Virgin Mobile)
News from PC Magazine:

The LG Optimus Slider ($ 199.99) is an average, low-end Android smartphone. It has good voice quality and a roomy QWERTY keyboard, but it’s certainly not going to thrill Android geeks. Factor in Virgin Mobile’s low-cost service plans starting at $ 35 per month, though, and it’s worth talking about. Although this isn’t a four-star phone when compared to options on other carriers, it’s the best keyboarded smartphone for Virgin, and that makes worthy of it our Editors’ Choice award.

Design, Call Quality, and Plans
The Optimus Slider measures 4.5 by 2.3 by 0.6 inches (HWD) and weighs 5.5 ounces. It’s a bit bulky, in part because of the large keyboard. It’s made of dark gray plastic, with a soft touch back cover. The 3.2-inch, 320-by-480 pix…………… continues on PC Magazine
