LG Optimus G becomes official!!!

   LG have been in the shadow of their South Korean rivals, Samsung, for far too long! The Optimus G might finally be the company's way out of that darkness! 

   For starters there is an insane spec sheet on this thing; there's a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 running the show, 4G LTE connectivity, and LG’s futuristic application of their fully integrated touch technology that goes by the name of in-cell touch, which is the same technology Apple is expected to use in the upcoming iPhone. 

   On top of that you've got a True HD (1280 x 768 pixel resolution) IPS+ LCD and LG claims it'll be able to squeeze right up to the edge of the 3mm bezel! On the back of the device you’ll find a massive 13 megapixel camera, to compliment the 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera. The other info includes; 2GBs of RAM, a 2100MaH battery and Android 4.0 ICS!

   This is one sleek (8.45mm thick), ultra-powerful device, hopefully LG will be able to keep this one up to date on the software front!

In other news:

  • Last week we reported that OnLive would be keeping their CEO, Steve Perlman, for the foreseeable future. But, it seems this week Mr. Perlman has been dismissed and the official statement from OnLive on Perlman leaving is that he is “departing to work on his myriad of other projects.” Perlman likely took his own financial beating with OnLive having to restructure.

    The Verge has said that while Perlman was the majority shareholder in OnLive; all his stock was wiped out when the company turned insolvent. The company used something called an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors, and this took off all stock in the company. Reports from insiders claim that the reason Perlman left was that his employees asked for his permanent resignation before they would even consider working for the new company. Ouch!
  • Sony's PS Vita is getting a firmware update to version 1.8. If you're a European reader this will bring you the option to play all PSone Classics, but the update is bitter-sweet if you live in the USA as only the following games are available to begin with;with more games cropping up each week in the USA.

    "Arc the Lad, Cool Boarders 2, Final Fantasy VII, Hot Shots Golf 2, Jet Moto, Syphon Filter, Tomb Raider, Twisted Metal 2, Wild Arms."
  • Apple has pushed for the ban of 8 Samsung devices after last weeks bombshell. The devices include; the Galaxy S 4G, AT&T Galaxy S II (AT&T), Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, T-Mobile Galaxy S II, Galaxy S2 II Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge, Galaxy Prevail.

    Thankfully most of these devices probably won't interest you but just in case they do get out there and get one ASAP before they get banned!
And finally, Engadget has got hold of a new picture and some specs for an upcoming version of the Droid Razr called the Motorola Droid Razr M 4G LTE. The only changes from the original version are Gorilla Glass 2 is added as well as a beefed up 3MP front-facing camera. Sorry it's not a Razr HD guys!
