LG factory strike may make HD displays scarce

If you've been enjoying the 720p screen on AT&T's LG Nitro HD, savor the experience - it may become rare in just a little while. At LG's primary LCD factory in Nanjing, China, a labor strike involving 8000 workers is threatening to bring the company's screen manufacturing plans to a grinding halt. That spells trouble for a lot of Android phone and tablet manufacturers, chief among them being (naturally) LG.

Republic Wireless launches VOIP network: $19 a month for unlimited everything

We took a look at Republic Wireless' pre-launch buzz a while back, and now invitations to the service are going out to those who signed up for notifications. The WiFi-assisted phone network will charge just $19 a month for unlimited voice, texting and data - with a few caveats. The hybrid connection system requires new hardware, and the first phone being offered is the original LG Optimus at $199 contract-free, though early adopters can get it for just $99.

Android Community Weekly: November 6, 2011

We've had a great week of tech reviews, hands-on/unboxings, and development for this first week of November! First, we started off our work week with an excellent review of the Motorola ATRIX 2 by Michael Crider. An unboxing of the HTC Rezound was then performed by Cory Gunther soon after. After seeing ads of the HTC Rezound show up in Verizon Wireless stores, you can be sure to see this device soon. It was officially announced to the public Thursday, and around the same time we released our own hands-on round-up.

LG Optimus EX press image and specs revealed

Well folks, just a few days ago we received our first potential look at the LG Optimus EX rocking a dual-core processor and a decent rap-sheet full of specs. Earlier this week the details were a bit scant but today we've found actual press images as well as a detailed breakdown the specs and what will be under the hood here with the EX.

LG Optimus LTE pictured again in the wild

The LG Optimus LTE has been floating around the past few weeks and now the details are starting to pour in. Known originally as the LG LU6200 sources have confirmed they are calling it the Optimus LTE but most likely will receive a full name once it hits a few carriers. This dual-core device is a nice improvement for LG's lineup and we cant wait to see more soon -- details below.

LG Optimus EX dual-core phone leaked

A new Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone from the teams at LG has been leaked along with a press photo and some impressive hardware specs. This is the Optimus EX (aka LG-SU880) and for now we are just starting to receive information on this handset. First off hitting markets in Korea, we can hopefully expect to see it land on others soon.

LG Optimus White, LG Optimus Bright, LG Optimus Skittles

We're here at the doorway to the future of multiple color options for every single Android device on the market. Is this the newness we've been searching for? Is this what women want? How about the gay community? Also, where is my yellow and black Wu-Tang device? All of this will be answered soon, or LG appears to be saying. With their recent release of the LG Optimus Black came a device whose name indicated the literal color of the device's case. Now there's an LG Optimus White on the market in the UK, and an LG Optimus Bright out with NTT DoCoMo in Japan. These are all essentially the same device. What's with the color changes?

LG Optimus 3D Hands-On and Unboxing

Woo look at this red hot goodness. It's the LG Optimus 3D, an early developer version "intended for engineers" -- take note of that for later. First let me comment on the box for a moment. It's slick. One thing you can say about LG and the rest of the bigtime companies like HTC these days is that they've got their packaging game together. I see this box on a shelf and I instantly want to know what's inside. Turns out what's inside is the world's first "Tri-Dual Technology", that being dual-core, dual-channel, and dual-memory. See how it feels to the hands here and now.

Screen capture comes to the LG Optimus and G2X

One thing that has been missing from the Android platform has been a fairly simply method to do screen captures. With the iPhone, for example, users only need to hold down the sleep button while clicking the hold button. Do it right and you're taking a picture of your screen. That function has been missing from the Android platform and LG has decided to do something about it with the Optimus and G2X.
