LG GW990 – The First MeeGo Smartphone


By Gaurav Kheterpal

A few days ago at the 2010 Mobile World Congress, Intel and Nokia announced that they are joining hands to launch a new hybrid mobile operating system named ‘MeeGo’. MeeGo will inherit the best of both worlds from Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Mobilin operating systems and will join the crowded war of mobile operating systems including the likes of Android, Symbian, iPhone OS and the recently launched Windows Phone 7 Series.

LG has announced that its GW990 would be the first ever smartphone to run on the MeeGo platform. For a start, the LG LG990 will be available in Korea during the second half of this year. It is expected to be available in other countries by end of this year.

UHDTV Is The New High Def


By Evan Ackerman

1080p? Yawn. It’s been done. If high def is the new normal def, what’s the new high def? It’s UHD (Ultra High Definition), which takes 1920 x 1080 full HD and quadruples the resolution to 3840 x 2160. This particular TV is an 84″ LCD from LG… Good luck spotting any pixels, even if I zoom waaaaayyyy in:


It’s kinda cool that you can actually get closer to the TV and examine things in greater detail, kinda like you can in real life. Not that this is necessarily a good thing, since it encourages unhealthy viewing distances. At least Sony is way ahead of us on that one.

It’s gonna be a little while before you’ll be able to buy a TV like this, if for no other reason than you’ll have a hard time finding any content that utilizes its full potential. And by the time stuff like this is available, we’ll be looking forward to the next high def standard… 8k (7680 x 4320, or 33 megapixels) should be arriving sometime around 2020.

Verizon has recently made available the most recent incarnation of the LG Chocolate line of phones in the LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 . Like the previous generations, the Chocolate Touch has an emphasis on music, though it’s an altogether pretty rounded out phone.

Out of the box, the device seems slim and light, though not of any dimensions we haven’t seen before. The screen is a bright 3 inches with WQVGA resolution and support for 262k colors. It comes 1GB of internal music memory, though it’s expandable up to 16GB through MicroSD cards. Rounding out the main specs, you have a 3.2MP digicam, 3.5mm audio jack and a “Patented Dolby Mobile music system”.

The music features definitely stand out.

LG BD300 is First Blu-ray Player to Stream Netflix Content

I am a big fan of movies; especially HD movies form my PS3 Blu-ray drive. I was glad when Blu-ray won out over HD DVD, not so much because I liked Blu-ray better, I was simply glad to see one format win despite the fact that I am now stuck with a worthless HD DVD player.

Now that Blu-ray is the standard, we are starting to see players with some cool features show up. LG announced an interesting player called the LG BD300 Network Blu-ray Disc Player. The BD300 does everything you expect a Blu-ray player to do like play full 1080p resolution Blu-ray movies, upscale standard DVDs to 1080p, and it supports BD Live.
