LG Optimus V Review [On the Go Android!]

Before we begin, let me direct you back to a review I conducted some months ago on a very similar telephone by the name of LG Optimus U. This is essentially the same piece of hardware with a slightly different set of apps, costing a different price and having a different carrier. Comparing the two would be an exercise in futility because this isn't the sort of phone you decide on first, then figure out what carrier you want later. This is the kind of phone you find while you're shopping for a new phone on a carrier you trust. Who would buy such a phone? What uses are there for such a phone as this? Would I use this phone? Let's talk.

LG Optimus V Hands-On and Unboxing [SUPER CUTE!]

Take a peek at this, an Android phone that's basically free, runs Android 2.2.1, and wont take up more than a tiny wallet's worth of space in your pocket. This is the LG Optimus V, the other-toned relative of the LG Optimus U which we've already taken a look at a few months ago. This phone is surprisingly similar, it's hardware essentially exactly the same save for the coloring (this one's black where that one's blue,) with a spiffy new box made to be sold off the shelves in stores all day long.

LG Optimus 3D goes to the FCC

Another 3D handset makes it's way for approval by Uncle Sam. The LG Optimus 3D, which is being tested for GSM as well as T-Mobile's WCDMA bands, looks to be taking a sure path to coming to the US Market. The bands being tested include GSM bands 850 and 1900, and WCDMA bands 1700 and 1900. But with the AT&T-Mobile merger looming, what fate will it hold for LGs 3D phone?

Sprint to launch EVO line of Tablets and 3D Phones

The talk of the town this weekend is that Sprint is rumored to be launching a new tablet based on the EVO line of Android handsets. The EVO View is likely to come with a dual core Tegra 2 dual core processor and could be a CDMA version of the HTC Flyer. In addition, Sprint is looking to add 3D to it's next generation EVO cellphones which will be aptly named the EVO 3D. And it may even run on 4G.

US Cellular offers buy one get five deal on Android

U.S. Cellular has announced a family sized buy one, get up to five free, deal on Android handsets and messaging phones. Customers who sign up for a two year US Cellular agreement and purchase a Samsung Mesermize (aka Galaxy S) for $99.99 can get up to five LG Optimus U smartphones free or one Samsung Messager Touch for $29.99 and get up to five Samsung Profiles for free. To sweeten the deal (as if it wasn't sweet enough), US Cellular is also offering a $100 Smartphone activation credit for every new line. There's even more benefit if customers add either their Primary Plus Plan or Belief Plan which offers phone upgrades after 18 months.
“These amazing deals are great for customers who want devices to fit their family’s wide variety of needs and lifestyles,” said Alan D. Ferber, executive vice president of operations for U.S. Cellular. “Busy parents will love how the cutting-edge Android-powered smartphones help them stay productive, and kids can stay entertained and connected with friends on the go. Many of our customers prefer texting over talking, so we also wanted to delight them with great deals on our messaging phones.”

VMWare announces mobile viritualization for Android

Today at MWC, viritualization developer VMWare showed off a mobile virtualization option for Android Phones. Mobile Virtualization would allow users to have both a private profile and a business profile operating on a single Android headset with the ability to switch between the two. The advantage is that employees can use the phone they prefer and keep a "chinese wall" between personal apps and enterprise based apps for security reasons. Initially, the virtualization option will be available through LG phones as the software must be pre-installed. There is no aftermarket application download capability. But that will change as more handset makers come on board.

LG Optimus 3D [Hands-On and Demo]

LG has official announced the LG Optimus 3D and it's a doozie. This phone is a 3D-capable smartphone with a Texas Intruments 1GHz dual-core OMAP4 processor, a 5-megalixel dual-lens camera for 3D video and photo capture, and it's got a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen display. On this screen you can view 2d (up to 1080p) and 3D (up to 720p) content all day long. We got our hands on one of these lovely phones here at Mobile World Congress 2011 and we're just a-rarin to show it to you in action.

LG Optimus 3D P920 Ad Spot – 3D Yoga Lady Demo [VIDEO]

We're awaiting the true experience when it comes to glasses-free 3D, waiting for it to give us something we never knew we needed but definitely need now, if you know what I'm talking about. Although Yoga isn't something that we'd guess many of the hardcore early-adopter crowd individuals are into, this commercial featuring a lady learning Yoga poses from what appears to be a miraculous display of third dimension graphics via the LG Optimus 3D has some definite potential for double-looks.
