LG Optimus 3D to debut at Mobile World Congress

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2011

We just spotted this one in the wild and it looks like LG is ready to talk about their upcoming 3D phone. At least in so much as they’ve officially announced that the LG Optimus 3D will make its debut appearance at the Mobile World Congress in Spain, in a few weeks.

The phone is LG’s first venture into 3D smartphones and it will be the first to offer a full 3D experience. LG has even included features that let you create your own 3D content. Other features include a dual-lens camera for 3D recording and a glasses-free LCD panel.

LG Optimus 3D spotted live

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on January 31st, 2011

We already knew that LG was working on a glasses-free 3D display which will be featured in the Optimus 3D, and now we the first live images. The display looks larger than 4 inches, though we don’t know the exact size. It will also come with a dual-core processor and have multi-channel RAM. Sounds good to us.

If you find yourself in Barcelona this February for Mobile World Congress 2011, why not check it out for yourself? All signs point to LG will be making an official announcement there. Will it be a Nintendo 3DS competitor? Who knows. Should be interesting.

Art Lebedev Optimus mini six key companion

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2011

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Art Lebedev, but now we hear that it has been working on a new companion keyboard for this year. The Optimus mini six is a keyboard-side companion like the mini three. We don’t have many details at the moment, but we do know that it will use the same in-key screens of the Optimus Popularis.

We also don’t have any idea on when it will launch either. The full-size Popularis keyboard was supposed to ship by the end of 2010 but was delayed by a “recent financial crisis,”. They will now ship the mini six ahead of the Popularis sometime in 2011.

LG Optimus 2X Android phone hits Europe in January

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

We already knew that it was coming to Korea in January. Now we have word that LG’s Tegra 2 Optimus 2X will hit Europe in January of 2011, with it’s 4-inch display and 1080p video recording capability. The news comes from a press release which talks about the inclusion of 25 audio files (including 15 custom ringtones) from film composer Ennio Morricone.

That’s right, the man who scored Sergio Leone’s “Spaghetti Westerns.” Seems like an odd partnership, but hey, those are some darn good tunes.

LG GT540 Optimus gets Android 2.1 Eclair update

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on November 12th, 2010

If you’re an LG GT540 Optimus owner and feel bad because it does not yet run on the Android 2.1 Eclair operating system, then relax. The Android 2.1 update is finally here. No, it isn’t Froyo (Android 2.2), but at least it’s better than Android 1.6, right?

This update will provide support for multiple accounts, a Quick Contacts interface, HTML5 support, Microsoft Exchange support, Live Wallpapers and Bluetooth 2.1. You will be able to download the update file here or just wait until LG rolls out over-the-air firmware changes.

LG readies Tablet, Optimus Smartphones

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on August 22nd, 2010

Sounds like LG is pretty confident about its soon to be released Android-tablet, due in the fourth quarter of this year. The tablet is branded as part of the Optimus line and will take a different route than the iPad tablet.

Instead of focusing on consumption, entertainment, and multimedia, LG will be gearing its tablet toward productivity. LG’s vice president of marketing for mobile devices Chang Ma says so. “Our tablet will be better than the iPad.” He says, “It’s going to be surprisingly productive.”

BlackBerry meets the Optimus Keyboard

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 5th, 2009

BlackBerry meets the Optimus KeyboardThis interesting concept comes from designer Billy May. The OLED Blackberry is a combination of a Blackberry 7130 and an Optimus Keyboard. This OLED Blackberry was designed for the Mozilla Phone project, and obviously it takes the best of both devices and creates this stunning concept seen above.

The OLED keys, just like on the Optimus Keyboard can be programmed and change their look. It looks stunning and the minute you see it, you realize that you are looking at a device that has some actual richness of personality and could provide a richer experience.

Optimus Popularis keyboard mock-up
The folks at Art Lebedev are busy little elves. They are working on a new keyboard that carries the Optimus name, but this time it will be smaller as evidenced by the above pic. It’s going by the codename Popularis.

There will be no OLED keys on this one, since it will be used on an entirely different principle although they did not mention what that might be. What we do know is that there will be 11 additional keys above the F-keys, and it will cost below $1,000.

Optimus Maximus keyboard finally shipping

Posted in Keyboards by Darrin Olson on February 21st, 2008

The Optimus Maximus keyboard is finally shippingIf you pre-ordered one of those Optimus Maximus keyboards last year then you might be seeing it on your doorstep soon as the Art Lebedev studio has finally started shipping them, at least the ones without the passive keys. In case you don’t remember, this keyboard is the one that has an individual OLED display for each key, letting you customize each display and function the the Configurator software which is also available for download now.

The Art Lebedev site is showing four different configurations of the keyboard ranging in price from about $1560 USD for a keyboard with all 113 active keys, down to just $462 USD for a keyboard with just the spacebar active. The company says you get sucked in with just the one key to start with and buy more active keys to replace the passive ones as you can afford them. The passive keyboard models will be available in another month.
