LG announces Resident Evil 4 for Android, keeps it in Korea

Survival horror fans, prepare to be excited... and then bitterly disappointed. LG (yup, LG, not developer Capcom) announced today that the excellent Resident Evil 4 is now available on Android. If you live in LG's home territory of South Korea. And you have an LG phone with access to their proprietary U+ Market. And it uses an LTE radio. And you've got about five bucks you're not particularly fond of. Android gamers, try to contain your joy.

10% of South Koreans own a Samsung Galaxy S II

In case you hadn't noticed, Samsung is big. Really big. And nowhere is that more evident than on its home turf in South Korea, where the company is a source of national pride. Not without reason, either: Samsung says that its 2011 workhorse smartphone the Galaxy S II has sold five million units in the country of 48.9 million people. In case your math's a little fuzzy, that means that just over ten percent of all men, women and children in South Korea carry a Galaxy S II.

Samsung Galaxy Note LTE gets official in Korea

Lots of news in the Galaxy Note department today, though sadly none of it will be much comfort to users waiting for the superphone to appear in other markets. OLED-Display reports that Samsung has announced an LTE variant of its supersized flagship phone for its home country of South Korea, giving users a chance for 4G connectivity in addition to the device's other numerous charms.

Pantech Vega LTE announced with 4.5-inch 720p display

720p seems to be the sweet spot for upcoming Android superphones: Both the Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime and the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE have a 720p screen, and the Galaxy Note bumps it up to 1280 x 800. Add another to the list with the Pantech Vega LTE. The newest from the South Korean manufacturer has a 4.5-inch display showing off the best of Gingerbread. Pantech's translation is a little rough, but based on some quick measurements, it looks like the screen will be a full 16:10, 1280 x 800 panel.

LG Optimus Note Official as dual-core Tegra 2-packing slider [Video]

While this isn't the first time LG has come correct with a dual-core smartphone, it's certainly the first time they've done so with a slide-out keyboard. With their lineup including such gems as the LG G2x, the LG G-Slate, and the Optimus 3D (aka the Thrill 4G), you'd think LG was the king of dual core. Here they prove their willingness to go strange with what may well be the device that makes their NVIDIA Tegra 2 to Qualcomm dual-core processor ratio go from 2-to-1 to 3-to-1 in an instant. Are you looking to bypass the other dual-core QWERTY slider on the block, the Droid 3? Here you go - LG Optimus Note!

Google Offices Raided by Korean Fair Trade Commission

It appears that Google's Seoul offices have been raided today by Korean trustbusters looking for information on the possible stoppering of search opponents in the company's mobile operating system Android. Search engine company NHN (popular in the area) and Daum Communications this past April asked the country's Fair Trade Commission to investigate Google's mobile search business practices. It appears that this request may well have been the source of the raid this week, and Google has responded with compliance and assurances to the public that they've got no ill willing code in play that would make their OS an unfair playing field.

South Korean Government Developing New Mobile OS

We're to understand that the next step in mobile evolution will be coming soon from no stranger a place than the South Korean government. Officials in South Korea's ministry have announced today that they'll be developing their own open-source smartphone operating system to give local smartphone markers "competitiveness". Competitiveness against what, you may ask? Against foreign smartphone OS makers, apparently, like the evil Android, apparently!
