    LG X3 Leaked


    LG’s high-end Android smartphone offerings have been somewhat disappointing in the past.  As such,  when we caught wind of the upcoming LG X3 superphone we were unsure how to react in expectation of this new device.  However, based on the information provided Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo, the anonymously leaked screenshots and benchmarks for this handset, LG may have a winner on its hands when they unveil the LC X3 as their new flagship device at this month’s Mobile World Congress.


    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Through our multitude of industry contacts... we were able to secure information relative the feature list will include:


    • 4.7" HD 1280x720 screen
    • Tegra 3 Quad core processor (1.5GHz on single core, 1.4GHz when on 2-4 cores) + SMP Core (core companion) for IDLE task operations which will save battery life
    • 2000mAh battery
    • 16GB internal memory + microSD slot
    • 8MP camera with ultra fast shutter
    • 1.3MP Front Facing camera

    We were also able to secure some informative screen shots


    LG X3 Leaked Screenshots


    What can we glean from the screenshots?  They suggest that the X3 will have either a lightly skinned version of LG’s overlay running or simply stock Android ICS (4.0.3). The quad-core processor previously mentioned should mean great performance for everyday tasks. And with 16GB internal memory that can be expanded to 48GB thanks to an internal microSD slot, a power processor helps ensure that users have the space to download, stream, and share their music, photos and other data.


    Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Interested consumers may look forward to seeing a 2000mAh battery, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera that supposedly rocks an uber fast shutter. The front-facing camera isn’t as impressive, but will get the job done in a pinch. Through in an NFC chip and you can one of those neat NFC chip enable smartphone protective case wallets that bring a new meaning to fashion and function.


    We are optimistic that LG will bring a worthy contender to the Mobile World Congress and dispel the misgivings and fears of those that been scared off by less than stellar mobile OS experiences with LG. If they fall flat, at least we will not be adrift in an Android-less sea of smartphone offerings from other manufacturers.

  • LG Vu Teaser
    Posted on February 13, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By John Castell


    Remember Zoolander’s impossibly tiny cell phone? At the time smaller was cooler when it came to mobile devices. Impossibly small, then impossibly thin. And now, “bigger is better” is making a comeback.


    At least that’s what we may see from LG at this month’s Mobile World Congress. More than likely, the LG Optimus 3D 2, quad-core X3 will be on display but we also hope to see LG’s Vu. The super-sized, 5 inch phone was the star of a teaser video from the Korean company and boasts a large screen.  Discover  the LG Vu:



    The aforementioned was a simple teaser… whetting our appetite for the LG Vu.    Besides the 5 in 1024x768IPS display, this upcoming Android 2.3 dual-core handset will have a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. There are smartphones out there with more impressive specs, but there are removable storage and extra memory for sale out there to accommodate the pictures taken with the Vu’s 8 megapixel camera.   See the entire LG Vu feature list here.

    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!   Discover the latest innovative protection solutions… stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes. Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    LG has to hope that the Vu has a better sales record than the Pantech Pocket, the most recent Android device that used a 4 to 3 aspect ratio. By all accounts, that smartphone bombed miserably at AT&T. However, LG has been surprising consumer with great cell phones, as such, if launched properly to the consumer market; the LG Vu could be a great alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note.


    As of now, we cannot say if the Vu will be at the Mobile World Congress, if it is to be brought to North America as an unlocked cell phone, or when it will be available outside of Korea. However, our fingers are crossed to see more of this new device. If the accessories are as intriguing as the possibilities of this handset, LG’s Vu may be a contender.

    Android. Apple. Apple. Android. The mobile OS brands and their respective handset manufacturers are in the grip of a fierce, cyclical competition to be the best and win global mindshare. Which is why we follow the momentum and progress of their sales and innovation so closely. So how did the vendors stack up against one another?   The usual culprits are present: Apple’s iPhone 4S and Samsung’s Galaxy S 2.


    Manufacturer Smartphone Market ShareOEM Market Share


    For the three-month average period ending in December, 234 million Americans age 13 and older used mobile devices. Device manufacturer Samsung ranked as the top OEM with 25.3 percent of U.S. mobile subscribers, followed by LG Mobile with 20 percent share and Motorola with 13.3 percent share. Apple continued to gain ground in the OEM market with 12.4 percent share of total mobile subscribers (up 2.2 percentage points), while RIM rounded out the top five with 6.7 percent share.


     


    Manufacturer Smartphone Market ShareSmartphone Platform Market Share


    97.9 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones during the three months ending in December, representing 40 percent of all mobile subscribers. Google Android ranked as the top smartphone platform with 47.3 percent market share, up 2.5 percentage points from September. Apple maintained its #2 position, growing 2.2 percentage points to 29.6 percent of the smartphone market. RIM ranked third with 16 percent share, followed by Microsoft (4.7 percent) and Symbian (1.4 percent).


    According to the another market research firm, The NPD Group, the top three best-selling smartphones in the United States of last quarter all came from Apple: the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 3GS (which consumers can receive at no cost when signing a contract at AT&T). Two of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S II made the top 5 list as well. The availability of some of these handsets as unlocked devices likely contributed to their success as well.

    When diving into the details of this buying behavior, NPD analyst, Ross Rubin, noted that customers are motivated by “a fast processor, improved camera and the Siri speech-driven agent, most iPhone buyers paid a premium for the iPhone 4S, making is the top-selling handset in Q4.” In fact, the latest iPhone 4S outsold its predecessor by a whopping 75% and lapped the iPhone 3GS by a ratio of five to one. Throw in an OS that ties in the number one selling tablets in the world and customer get hooked.


    When looking at the mobile OS platform of choice amongst first-time smartphone buyers, Android won out with 57% - Apple only saw 34% of those first time buyers choose their solution.


    Much as there are solid tech reasons for Apple’s great performance with the iPhone 4S, NPD’s Rubin also outlines the rationale of Android’s growth and popularity amongst first-time buyers. “Android has been criticized for offering a more complex user experience than its competitors, but the company’s wide carrier support and large app selection is appealing to new smartphone customers,” Rubin noted. “Android’s support of LTE at Verizon has also made it the exclusive choice for customers who want to take advantage of that carrier’s fastest network.”

    Every brand and company has its shtick, its M.O., its press friendly sound bytes. Google is no different when espousing the virtues of its Google Android operating system at each event they are able to use a soapbox and spread their smartphone evangelism. The main gospel is the Android culture of openness and the lack of limitations is to the benefit of the consumer.


    Google Not So Open – Changes on the Horizon?


    This is great PR spin. And this writer truly loves a good euphemism laced with truth. So, while Android is more open that its competitors, it is comparative. When held up to open-source software like Linux, it is actually quite closed. Hence, a Hollywoodesque Benniffer moniker is bound to catch: Clopen.


    At the moment, Google makes the Android OS source code available to companies and individuals to customize to their liking. Very open and transparent, non? Flip side of this coin is the Google mobile suite: Gmail, Android Market, Google Maps, and the long list of “Google” stamped functions. These are closed sourced. The double talk is confusing for customers. Especially when end users purchase a no-Market Android device. Not good PR.


    Throw in the custom skins and fragmentations used by the varied carriers and manufacturers and there is a varying standard of quality for the smartphones bearing the Android and Google names. This is damaging to a brand. In fact, Marketing Land’s Danny Sullivan wrote that these quality control discrepancies are resulting in customers with outdated devices in their hands. This particular quirk can be addressed with accessories (protective cases, upgraded screen skins etc), but what is under the hood is harder to resolve.


    Google Not So Open – Changes on the Horizon?


    Case in point: the latest Android OS release, Ice Cream Sandwich. Various manufacturers have hedged and speculated about when the update would be available and on what phones and what carriers (at least with an unlocked phone, the customer will have more say in to get the latest Android OS). As of right now, only one physical device has the update on it. The flagship Android phone, Galaxy Nexus. Newer devices like the DROID RAZR, DROID Bionic, and the Rezound should see the update later in 2012, but there are many others like the LG Revolution (launched only 7 months ago) that will never get the ICS upgrade treatment because of the carrier (please see above note about unlocked phones!).


    Luckily for customers, the Open Handset Alliance which encompasses major US players (LG, HTC, Motorola, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T to name a few) which has pledged with Google to bring an end to fragmentation and bring the latest Android OS to devices if the smartphone release is 18 months old or younger.

  • As it was promised a few months back Verizon Wireless’ now exclusive NFL Mobile app is available for download in advance of the NFL Draft on April 22.  The app is currently available for 13 different smartphones and 3G feature phones including the Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Eris, BlackBerry Storm 2, LG enV Touch and more.  The app is free for the entire 2010 NFL season as long as customers download it before the postseason begins in early 2011.



    The new NFL Mobile app will have a variety of features that include live streaming of Sunday Night Football on NBC and the Thursday Night Football games aired on the NFL Network.  The app for your unlocked cell phone will also offer preseason highlights from training camps including preseason games, a wide variety of stats, information, news and fantasy football data.  The app will also have live radio feeds from every regular season and playoff game.  It is also expected that later this year the popular NFL RedZone channel will come to the new mobile service which will allow customers to watch all of the NFL games whenever a team is in the red zone.


    This new NFL Mobile app sounds like a football fan’s dream come true.

  • LG Rumor Touch Launching March 28
    Posted on March 30, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Sprint recently announced that the LG Rumor Touch will be available starting March 28th.  The cost of this new phone is set at $79.99 with a new two year contract and $50 mail in rebate.  The LG Touch is set to be one of the better cell phones on the market.  Specs for the Touch include a 3 inch WQVGA touchscreen, 2.0 megapixel camera and camcorder, microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB as well as Google search and 3G data capabilities operating on the Sprint EVDO Rec. 0 network.


    LG Mobile Cell Phones
    The LG Touch also offers access to Sprint Navigation, Sprint TV, Sprint Music and Sprint Mobile Email with personal and corporate calendar features.  With the initial launch of the LG Touch on the 28th the phone is set to be released in a blue color.  Two additional colors red and purple are set to be released starting April 18th.
    The LG Rumor Touch has been one of the highly anticipated  phones in recent months.  With its full list of features the LG Rumor Touch is set to be a classic phone for anyone looking to purchase a new device on a budget.  The 3 inch touchscreen and 2.0 megapixel camera are more than enough power for the casual user while the mircoSD card supporting up to 32GB is a nice addition for even the power users.  With that sort of memory capabilities you will certainly be able to take a lot of pictures and videos to store on your phone while carrying around all of your music with you wherever you go.  I am wondering if LG plans to release this phone in any other colors besides blue, red and purple after the second set of phones are released on April 28th?

  • Sprint will now be carrying another environmentally correct cell phone.  The LG Cell Phone (Remarq) is primarily a messaging phone, which will also allow you to utilize many social networking features.  The biggest deal about this phone is that it is eco-friendly.  It is partially made from recycled plastic and the packaging that the mobile device comes in is mostly made from materials that are recycled as well.  To carry the theme on further, the charger is Energy Star.  We have seen an emergence of environmentally friendly phones, which also includes the Sony Ericsson Aspen unlocked cell phone.



    Not only is the phone good for the earth, being manufactured and produced with 87% environmentally friendly products, but it also comes with a really cool eco-calculator application, which will tell you how much CO2 you are saving when you walk or cycle instead of using a car.  The phone also comes with additional features as well.  It has the full slide out QWERTY keyboard.  It also has a 1.3 mega pixel camera, MP3 player and has the MicroSD card slot, which gives you up to 16GB of additional memory.  It is also has stereo Bluetooth.  The phone is great for social media such as Facebook and the phone makes it extremely easy to upload photos to the variety of social networks and Photobucket.


    It has all of the built-in accessories we use, such as the alarm clock calculator, notepad clock.  You will be able to send and receive instant messages and e-mail, as well as the ability to access any of your e-mail accounts.  The phone is available in dark silver, as well as turquoise.  Give you 5.5 hours of talk time and has a 320x240 QVGA screen with 262K of color resolution.  It should be available around May 9th.

  • AT&T Gets The LG Arena
    Posted on February 24, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    AT&T gets the LG Arena to add to its family of LG cousins. The LG has been offered as a LG unlocked cell phone outside of the United States until this recent announcement. This great phone contains power packed three-inch touch screen technology with many applications.


    Included is a camera that has 5.0 mega pixels, auto focus, and the video capture capabilities to upload and pass pictures and videos around various social networking sites. With a touch of a finger you can locate photos and videos or create rapid-fire photo sequences to capture more that a moment of the great game you are at. LG’s S-Class with 3D user interface touts WiFi and built in GPS technology to get you where you are going. The touch multimedia wheel can keep downloads quickly accessible to listen in the Dolby Mobile surround sound technology.


    Although this is not a smart phone it has all the bells and whistles for a social networking phone, The Intuitive browser offers email and texting opportunity with lightning speed touch screen capabilities. Included are the phonebook, calendar, and easy to use alarm. For those of us that are technologically impaired the touch screen alarm clock is a great feature, with in sync time settings, the wake up call will keep us on time. An FM transmitter is included to tune into any games or watch them on the TV out connect option. Bluetooth technology and the speakerphone give no excuse for hands free operations.


    AT&T is offering a 7-day try the phone out offer to let you see and experience the ease of operation. If you have been waiting for this phone to get to the states the announcement has just been made and the phone is waiting for you at any ATT retail stores or online. As AT&T gets the LG Arena unlocked, the positioning of other phones joining the team will be an interesting play to watch.
