"Today for review I’ve got another phone for you, this time one for the Verizon network, it’s the LG Ally, an Android based phone that they’re calling a superphone. The Ally is running the newer version of Android, and for the most part it seems similar to other versions, but it does seem much snappier and quicker, but it could be the hardware in the phone that helps that along. I’ve enjoyed my time with this phone, it has a nice sized full QWERTY keyboard, yes it’s slider, but the buttons are nice to type on for whatever you’re doing be texting or sending an email. I’m surprised with the battery life, it’s very good, my experience with Android based phones and battery life hasn’t been a good one, but the LG Ally can last a couple days without recharging it. The Ally also features a decent 3.2Mp camera that even has a macro mode, so read on to learn more about a fairly decent phone from Verizon and LG… " READ MORE
"Well, here's a way to make those 3D tellies attractive -- slim them down to unreasonable proportions and kill as much of the bezel as you can. The newly announced LX9500 isn't quite as skinny as the stuff we saw LG show off at CES, but at 22.3mm it still makes the majority of laptops look on in envy. Paired to a pleasingly minimal 16mm bezel, it makes for quite the gorgeous living room accessory, whether on or off (one more pic after the break). The new LED-backlit set will offer a full 1080p resolution and a 400Hz refresh rate, which is more than enough to make those active shutter glasses useful. A 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is given, but that number wouldn't impress us even if it was the total US national debt to 1, we want real contrast numbers or nothing at all. Anyhow, Reuters is reporting a 4.7 million Won ($4,134) launch price for the 47-inch model, which should go on sale a week from now in Korea. A 55-inch variant should also be available when these 3DTVs make the journey westwards in May. " source
"We've seen more exciting leaked roadmaps, but it's rather comical that LG's leak came about by accidentally sharing a Google Document. A 3D TV, 3D Blu-ray player and TV webcam for 720p Skype chat are all due to launch soon.
That 3D TV is actually just a different version of the LH9500 series, named the LX9500, and will be available mid-May. After learning that, it'll certainly make the TVs announced at CES that are due in March - April a lot less attractive. The BD580 3D Blu-ray player will be on sale in the middle of April, just a few weeks earlier in May the webcam peripheral allowing for 720p Skype chatting on your TV will become available too." source
"If you needed another reason to not stop believin' in plasma, look to LG. The company is introducing a pair of the sets in its home market of Korea dubbed "Skinny Frame," a reference to the 25mm thin border around the panels -- which honestly isn't mind-blowingly thin, but nobody likes beefy bezels, right? The sets are available in 50- and 60-inch sizes, both offering 600Hz refresh rates, automatic contrast adjustment based on lighting conditions, and the ability to play photos and videos from a connected USB drive. Not bad, but at 1,700,000 and 3,800,000 won ($1,150 and $3,325) they're not cheap, either." source
"Another week, another "world's thinnest." LG's new LCD looks like an OLED, and at just 2.6mm thick, it's actually a shade thinner than Sony's XEL-1.
Thankfully LG didn't compromise on diagonal size, with this prototype coming in at 42-inches. It's LED-backlit, with a 120Hz processor (for the US market, anyway) and apparently only weighs 4 kilograms." Source
"LG's just stolen ahead in the 3D TV wars, claiming it will sell 400,000 3D TVs during 2010, and in the following year a mahoosive 3.4 million units.
Putting its money where its mouth is, LG's also joined forces with the Korean SkyLife, one of the largest 3D TV broadcasters in the world. Aiming to create industry standards, and do for 3D TV what Sony did for Blu-ray, they'll work together to ensure those ambitious sales targets are met.
Ultra-slim bezels are part of LG's hook, which supposedly help the 3D image pop with more effect. No doubt we'll be seeing more products launch next month at CES, such as these 42-72-inch models and 150-inch projectors which LG's been spouting off about, as so far it's only launched the 47-inch 47LH50 and 23-inch LCD monitor in Korea."

"The first3D monitor that will actually hit shelves rather than get nerdlingers all hot under the collar at trade shows has just been announced, with LG being the victorious party first to the market.
Measuring 23-inches, the LCD monitor is ideal for PC gamers though will also be compatible with 3D broadcasts, which we'll see a lot more of in 2010. You won't need to keep the shutter glasses to hand 24/7 thankfully, as the ability to switch between 2D and 3D is of course included. This may be the first 3D product LG's put to market worldwide, but back in July their 47LH50 went on sale in Korea, despite Korea only recently announcing a terrestrial 3D broadcast trial" Source
"LG recently announced its second Windows Mobile device for the U.S. market -- the eXpo. This device is more than a mere smartphone, however, and has a trick, removable pico projector for showing your friends movies...er...colleagues those PowerPoint presentations you've been working on.
Even without the pico projector attached, the eXpo is one chubby phone. It has a reasonably large display and is a sideways slider that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging. This form factor is not known for its svelte waist line, so it's no surprise that the eXpo is exponentially thick. It feels weighty and solid in the hand, and made of middling quality materials. They aren't the finest we've laids hands on, and they're certainly not the worst. " Source & Image Cred: PhoneScoop
"Nokia Oyj, the world’s largest maker of mobile phones, sued Samsung Electronics Co., LG Display Co., AU Optronics Corp. and other manufacturers of liquid-crystal displays over claims they colluded to fix prices.
The lawsuit, filed Nov. 25 in federal court in San Francisco, is based on federal and state antitrust claims. It mirrors arguments AT&T Inc. made in a suit filed last month in the same court against liquid crystal display manufacturers." source
