LG Optimus Vu arrives at MWC 2012
Just where do you think the line should be drawn when it comes to a small tablet as opposed to a smartphone with a really large display size? Well, Samsung broke new boundaries with their Samsung Galaxy Note, offering 5.3” of viewing goodness to the masses, and I do not suppose that LG intends to hit back with a model of their own in reply – calling it the LG Optimus Vu, although the screen size is not as generous as the Galaxy Note’s at just 5”. Still, 5” is plenty large for a smartphone, considering how many models in the market these days come with 4.3” of viewing real estate.
The LG Optimus Vu was developed with productivity on the go in mind, which is why the screen size has been increased to 5”. Sporting LTE connectivity for super fast Internet connection wherever you are (as long as there is a decent connection, of course, otherwise it would drop one tier to 3G) alongside IPS display technology, the Optimus Vu is a performer to be reckoned with – especially when you consider its 1.5GHz dual-core processor, aided by 32GB of internal memory as well as a rather beefy 2,080 mAh battery that ought to get the job done – considering bulk of the battery’s life would go into keeping the display working.
The large 5” display will come with a 4:3 aspect ratio that intends to make viewing documents, books, internet and multimedia contents a whole lot easier – not to mention far more comfortable. Specially optimized for viewing to grasp more at a single glance, not to mention making note taking a snap in order to increase productivity in everyday life, I foresee a lot of digital doodles being drawn on this as well.
The LG Optimus Vu also comes with a special built-in QuickClip hotkey that enables users to be able to capture screenshots and memos with but a single push. With their own Rubberdium pen, you can jot down notes in a jiffy, or also use your finger if you cannot be bothered with something as formal as a writing instrument. Other productivity apps were also thrown into the mix for the Optimus Vu:, including Polaris Office. No idea on pricing or availability yet as at press time.
