LG Revolution Review

Welcome to the Revolution! This is LG's newest effort for Verizon, the LG Revolution running on their 4G LTE network. This device features a 4.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel resolution TFT display and a single core Snapdragon MSM8655 1GHz processor, connecting with Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, HDMI, DNLA, and it's got Netflix! That this is one of the most important draws to the device makes us wary of it. But behold, this is an LG phone and we've been rolling out with some rather impressive LG phones as of late. The LG Optimus 3D and the T-Mobile G2x were pretty excellent, how does the LG Revolution add up?

G2x and G-Slate Both Have IPS Display [CONFIRMED]

We've just received official word from LG that both the T-Mobile G2x and the G-Slate BOTH have IPS displays. There's been a bit of debate about this as of late, whether the display on these devices were simply TFT or if they amped it up a few notches to the more expensive and more fantastic in both color and viewing angles In-Plane Switching (IPS.) What does this mean, you might ask? Why should I give one hoot? Because now you know you can watch Tron: Legacy with the BRIGHT lights!

HTC Thunderbolt battery life to get extended options

It's no secret that part of the delay of the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt release was do to the challenging battery life of the handset on the 4G/LTE network. In SlashGear's review today, that was never more obvious when solely relying on 4G for average use, the Thunderbolt red barred after less than 3 hours. And even though coupling 4G with WiFi the battery life becomes comparable with other HTC 4G options, clearly something needs to be done. HTC is addressing battery life concerns by announcing they will be selling an optional extended life battery in the near future.

HTC Thunderbolt review on SlashGear

Vince over at SlashGear got his hands on the long anticipated, and often delayed, HTC Thunderbolt by Verizon and considering it's 4g hardware is "seasoned," the impressions are positive. The design of the Thunderbolt standard for an HTC handset, large 4.3" screen, metal chassis, industrial look. And while the display is a standard WVGA TFT touchscreen, the colors are impressively crisp and warm. And the design is actually narrower than most 4G phones, considering the extra space needed for it's built in metal kickstand.

HTC Thunderbolt display comparison: looks are deceiving

Users of the new HTC Thunderbolt may be quite happy with the phone's touchscreen display ... so long as they don't show it next to the Google Nexus S or the Atrix 4G. Comparing the Thunderbolt's TFT display with the Google Nexus S Super AMOLED display or even the Atrix 4g qHD display, it really shows just how muted and washed out the images from the TBolt really look. But according to the review by Vince over at SlashGear, it's still a pretty impressive display. Users just shouldn't succumb to display envy.

Sony WalkMan Phones return

Last summer, we talked about Sony's plans to bring the Sony Walkman brand back to phones to create a media class smartphone. Back then, we were talking about a small 2.6" TFT display with a paltry 5.1 MP camera and 600 Mhz processor. There was also talk of a tablet which has of yet to appear. It may be better late than never, but we've now got word that Sony-Ericsson is gearing up marketing in preparation for a 2011 WalkMan mobile launch. And here's the poster to prove it ....

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Hands-on [Video]

Looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, it's easy to notice more than just the larger screen. This follow-up to the original Galaxy Tab concept is more powerful thanks to the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor working in concert with Android 3.0 to do all the heavy lifting. And although it is designed to go head to head with the iPad, it's actually lighter than it's Cupertino cousin.
