We’re live from Seoul, South Korea, where we’ve gotten our first look at the Optimus G, the newest flagship Android smartphone from manufacturer LG.
For as important as the hardware is to LG — 4.7-inch True HD IPS display in a ridiculously thin form factor, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor at 1.5GHz and a 13 MP camera — it’s the user interface that LG seems to be particularly proud of. There’s still no mistaking that you’re using an LG phone, as everything fits together just so and seems very much in its place. But at the same time, it’s lost a bit of its rigidity.
It’s definitely getting close to that time again. Another Samsung event is almost upon us, and as always theres a Samsung Unpacked Android application to participate in the buzz. Simply titled Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012, the app is free to download right now from the Google Play Store. An initial word of warning though — it’s buggy. It won’t open on my HTC One X, so at least for now some of you won’t be getting any joy from trying to open it. It could be an ICS thing, as theres already a comment that it also doesn’t work on a Verizon Galaxy Nexus. Hopefully come the big day though, it’ll be fixed.
Following multiple reports claiming Apple was working with suppliers and manufacturing partners to develop a new 15-inch MacBook Air, it now looks as though the rumored slim 15-inch laptop is part of a redesigned MacBook line that will also include a 13-inch model. Citing unnamed sources within Apple’s supply chain, DigiTimes on Friday reported that new thinner MacBook Pro laptops have entered production and shipments could begin as soon as this month. Monthly yield is expected to initially fall between 100,000 and 150,000 units, but the site claims shipments will soon climb to 900,000 units. Details are scare beyond the thinner case, and no launch time frame was provided. An earlier report suggested Apple’s slimmer 15-inch notebook will launch in April.
