After passing on Samsung Galaxy Note, Verizon finally decided to get into a phablet game with the U.S version of LG Optimus Vu.
Called Verizon LG Intuition, the new smartphone/tablet hybrid will be available from September 10th, for $199 with a 2 year contract.
LG Intuition specs include:
- Verizon LTE support
- 1.5 GHz dual-core MSM8660 Snapdragon CPU
- 1GB of RAM
- Android 4.0 ICS
- 5” HD IPS 650 NIT display with 4:3 aspect ratio
- 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording
- 1.3 mpx front facing camera
- NFC support
- Mobile Hotspot –for up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
- Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
- DLNA support
LG Intuition will also have a couple of NFC stickers in a box, which you will be able to slap on, e.g. your office table and a nightstand in your bedroom – to switch between work, travel, home and sleep modes with a single tap.
And, of course, a phablet wouldn’t be a phablet if it wasn’t good for taking notes. For that, LG created a Quick Memo app that should work well with included capacitive stylus, or Rubberdium pen, as they call it.
So if you are into these ginormous devices, head to your nearest Verizon store in about a week. Or pre-order your LG Intuition it online, and if you do that between Sept. 6th and 10th – you’ll get a free LG Tone Stereo Bluetooth headset for free.
