When Samsung released their Note phablet, the concept of a phone big enough to be a tablet didn’t exist. Fast forward three phablet generations and the concept is exploding. Not everyone needs a high-end phablet, so enter the LG G-Pro Lite – launched at the start of February – a 5.5-inch device that combines a big screen and a stylus with slightly more modest specs. The LG G2 was probably my favourite phone of 2013 and I’m an LG fan, so the G-Pro Lite had a lot of expectations to meet when I reviewed the device.

Hardware
We’re talking a 5.5″ 540×960 pixel screen (it’s certainly not full HD, but does the job) coupled with a dual core processor, eight megapixel rear camera, built-in stylus and a 3000mAh battery. In layman’s terms: big screen, big battery, combined with a decent camera and processor.

On the outside, we have the standard three Android buttons on the front of the screen; with “Home” being a physical button, along with “Power” and “Volume” buttons around the side. Just above the
“Volume” buttons is another key that turns on Q-Memo. This app a…………… continues on Mail & Guardian Online

LG Optimus Vu Phone-Tablet Coming to Verizon
News from PCWorld:

The LG Optimus Vu, a 5-inch tablet/smartphone combo similar to the popular Samsung Galaxy Note, is headed for Verizon’s 4G LTE network, and will reportedly ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

According to the folks over at Android Police, the phone-tablet, or “phablet” is a “horrendous boxy eyesore” with a 5-inch display. Even when compared to the 4.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S III, the Optimus Vu looks extremely large. In PCWorld’s Optimus Vu review, Armando Rodriguez found the poor design makes the tablet-phone uncomfortable to hold and awkward to use.

Sony, Motorola, LG, Acer join Apple, HTC to focus on top-end smartphones in India
News from Economic Times:

KOLKATA/NEW DELHI: Once popular mobile phone brands Sony, Motorola and LG are joining the likes of HTC and Apple and focusing on the small but lucrative segment of high-value smartphones in the Indian market. The shift comes after multiple failed attempts to salvage market share in the fiercely-competitive feature phone and entry-level smartphone segments.

These companies may have globally decided to move out of feature phones as early as last year, but were still selling them in India in a last-ditch attempt to gain a presence after losing out to competition from Nokia, and home-grown brands Micromax and Karbonn. In entry-level smartphones, Samsung has thrown a big challenge to all by launching multiple models in the sub- Rs 10,000 segment running on Google’s popular Android smartphone operating system.

Even smartphone brands like Acer and Dell are significantly pruning their presence in the Indian market after failing to crack it. Dell, which last year built a portfolio of…………… continues on Economic Times
