LG has announced another new Android smartphone, the LG Optimus LTE 2 which will go on sale in South Korea in the middle of May, and comes with the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The LG Optimus LTE2 comes with a True HD IPS display, and a massive 2GB of RAM, unfortunately there are no details on what processor it will use as yet.
Other specifications on the LG Optimus LTE2 include a 2,150 mAh battery, unfortunately that is all we know so far on the specifications as the announcement didn’t include a full list of specifications.
The LG Optimus LTE2 will go on sale in South Korea in the middle of May, and will be available with all of the five domestic carriers in the country.
So enthused with the Galaxy S III that you want to know exactly when in the summer Americans can buy one? You can follow us, of course, but Samsung has you covered with a sign-up page that will take your vitals with promises that you’ll “get the latest on the Next Galaxy.” We wouldn’t read too much into seeing AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and others in the list of carriers to choose from, though. Samsung has run identical sign-up campaigns in the US before, and it focused the initial Galaxy S II launch on three major carriers rather than carpet bombing every network at once.
Were you eying Bowers & Wilkins’ P5 headphones, but put off by the initial $300 (now $250) sticker price and not so inclined to the in-ear C5? Someone at the company heard you, as we’re now getting the P3 for a more affordable $200. What changes when you pocket the extra cash? You’ll get aluminum and other hallmarks of buying the British outlet’s audiophile gear, but the cost trimming brings a special “ultra-light acoustic fabric” instead of sheepskin leather and a more portable folding design instead of the pivoting earcups found on the P5. Bowers & Wilkins is light on performance details, but it promises that the design will be comfortable for long listening sessions, and there are both universal and Apple-friendly in-line remotes to make your phone calls and skip tracks. Black- and white-hued versions of the P3 should be hitting American shops in June.
Many in the Windows Media Center community were afraid that Windows 8 would mark the end of Media Center, while others thought it would be like Notepad — present, but unchanged. In the end both were wrong as Microsoft announced Media Center would be available as an add-on to Windows 8. Until now though, we didn’t know exactly how that process would work. Steven Sinofsky outlined on the Building Windows 8 blog how users will be able to use Add Features to Windows 8 in Control Panel and purchase the same great Media Center experience that was included in Windows 7 Premium and Pro. The price is still unannounced but is expect to be “in line with marginal costs” — whatever that means. The price paid will cover the royalties for the required codecs to support broadcast TV and DVD playback (DVDs still won’t play in Media Player). One codec that will be supported in all version of Windows 8, but will require the computer maker to license the codec directly, is Dolby Digital Plus. So yeah, something else that was included in Windows 7 for free. We’re glad it’s there, but wish we’d get something new for the new premium price. Like most, we’ll probably hold on to our Windows 7 HTPC a little bit longer.
Sad that Samsung’s rumored S-Cloud didn’t appear on the scene? Well the arrival of the company’s new Video, Game and Music hubs might heal the wounds. Rather than a unified service, the Galaxy S III will have access to three separate stores that will offer an alternative to Google Play. We spent a few minutes having a play, and you can see what it’s like after the break.
If you don’t know where you came from, you won’t know where you’re going. That’s why we’re stacking up Samsung’s Galaxy S III against the S II and the Galaxy S to see how the range has come on in the three years it’s existed. If you fancy a trip down memory lane to the heady days of 2010, then join us after the break.
