LG Nitro HD

LG Nitro HD ICS update due July 31st

We might have jumped up a version of Android to Jelly Bean, but manufacturers are still playing catch up with Ice Cream Sandwich. At least LG is working slowly but surely, with AT&T announcing that the ICS update for the LG Nitro HD will be coming on July 31st. The update will bring all the benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich, plus LG’s new Optimus 3.0 UI, offering a cleaner visual aesthetic plus some new features.

LG Optimus LTE P936 appears headed for new markets

The Optimus LTE is LG's flagship phone, at least until the Optimus 4X HD arrives. That being the case, it's strange that it's only available in four countries: LG's home turf South Korea, neighbor Japan, plus Canada and the United States (as the Nitro HD and Spectrum on AT&T and Verizon, respectively). GSM Dome got their hands on a familiar looking model, the Optimus LTE P936, that appears to be identical to the international version except for branding. The new model is obviously headed somewhere, though there's no indication of where that might be.

LG Optimus LTE sells a million worldwide

Though their footprint in the United States isn't as large as they'd like, LG remains a major player in the worldwide smartphone game. case in point: the company announced today that its current flagship, the Optimus LTE, has sold over a million phones in all its various territories. LG's home country of South Korea accounts for a whopping 600,000 phones all by itself, with the rest being split between the United States, United Kingdom, United States and Canada.

Street Fighter 4 bumped back to 2012, still an LG exclusive

Bad news for fighter fans: Street Fighter 4 HD has bumped its Android release back, at least according to the sign-up page for the Global Championship 2012 Tournament. Previously the game had been scheduled for a fourth quarter release, but obviously, that's unlikely to happen at this point. There's no word on when the game might show up, and unfortunately, it still seems to be exclusive to LG customers: the only phone verified to get the game so far in the US is AT&T's LG Nitro HD, though Japanese customers should see it on the Asian equivalent, the LG Optimus LTE.

We've finally finished a couple excellent reviews, have a better understanding of whats been holding up the Galaxy Nexus, and learned of some cool new accessories for your new (or older) device! The first review definitely worth taking a look at is of the ASUS Transformer Prime. Cory Gunther put it to the test through some rigorous benchmark tests and great video demonstrations. To date, it has performed better than any current Android tablet on the market. Next up, Michael Crider posted a review of the new Nitro HD by LG. It turned out to have quite a crisp IPS LCD display, but turned out to be a quite bland device in general.

This week in tech news we've had our share of reviews, unboxings, and even some much needed software updates. We had heard Monday the ASUS Transformer Prime would be launching December 8th from a Newegg pre-order page. Needless to say, we got the official word from ASUS confirming that same date Wednesday which turned out false. The Prime will arrive stateside on December 19th. The device is simply amazing, and we've got an excellent hands-on to prove it. Though our official review isn't out yet - you can check out the one over at our sister-site SlashGear. Yet another video taken compares the Transformer Prime to the Apple iPad 2 - a great matchup indeed.
