LG Optimus LTE Tag
We took a look at the LG Optimus Vu yesterday, and here we are with yet another smartphone from the South Korean consumer electronics giant – the LG Optimus LTE Tag. Just what does the LG Optimus LTE Tag bring to the table? Well, this is the first High Definition LTE smartphone in the world (according to the folk over at LG anyways), and is also in line with LG’s vision of delivering the most diverse collection of LTE devices across the board – meaning, a phone for every single person, regardless of need and budget. LG claims that the Optimus LTE Tag is not any mere smartphone which is nice to look at, but rather, it also delivers a truly innovative feature that would come in the form of NFC support that might just help it stand out from the rest of the crowd.
Granted, not all smartphones come with NFC at the moment, and it also depends on where the NFC service is supported. At least, you can be safe in knowing that your phone is well equipped to face the future, whatever may come its way? The reason the Optimus LTE Tag was named so was because of the new LG Tag+ feature that relies on NFC (Near Field Communication) in order to communicate with special stickers or “tags” which are fully programmable to automatically change the phone’s settings.
For starters, if you happen to swipe a tag after entering the office, it will automatically send the Optimus LTE Tag into silent mode, while kicking off the Wi-Fi connection so that you can piggyback on the office’s network instead of spending more battery life on a 3G connection. How about this, a tag that is located on your car dashboard might be programmed in order to turn on Bluetooth, GPS as well as raise the volume? Basically, you are limited by your imagination.
As for the hardware, the LG Optimus LTE Tag is no slouch, where it has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor running underneath the hood, while Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the operating system of choice. Of course, LG has promised that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is also in the pipeline, but that is a different story for another day. The display will be pretty much the industry standard – 4.3″, making the Optimus LTE Tag ideal for some heavy lifting in the multimedia department. 16GB of internal memory, a 1,700mAh battery, a 5-megapixel camera at the back and a 1.3-megapixel shooter in front rounds off the list of specifications.
