Mobile World Congress, which is scheduled from 27 February to 1 March 2012, is going to showcase several smartphones and tablets on its floor. One of the several entrants will be LG Optimus 4X HD. This smartphone has various features to boast of. Nothing has been said on its price or the final release date.

Larger than the average smartphones, it endorses a screen which is 4.7 inch long. It will also catch your attention with its HD resolution of 1280×720. The most distinct feature, which is gathering all attention, is the introduction of 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip is designed to differentiate between heavy computing versus less intensive tasks, all thanks to its fifth processor for saving battery aka 4-PLUS-1 technology. The other features that make this smartphone special are 8MP camera supported with 1.3 MP front camera for video chatting.

In words of the President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company, Dr. Jong-seok Park, “But speed in itself isn’t what makes LG Optimus 4X HD unique, it’s the benefit we’re bringing to customers with the HD multimedia experience in a mobile form factor.”

LG® Launches its New Tablet LG Optimus Pad LTE

Here comes another contender in the war of the tablets. With most of the IT giants releasing one after another tablet, it’s now turn of LG to do so with its announcement of its new tablet LG Optimus Pad LTE. The tablet will be available in South Korea first and then will be launched globally.

The thin design looks very attractive and the IPS display gives it a good edge. But the news that it runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb is little heartbreaking. Here is a look at its features-

1) It is 8.9- inch and has a display of 1280×768 IPD.

2) It measures mere 9.3 mm in thinness.

3) The rear facing camera is 8MP and the front facing camera is 2MP.

4) Its battery is powered with 6,800 mAh.

5) It has 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor.

6) This sleek tablet has a built-in-storage of 32GB and a microSD card slot.

7) It is compatible with HDMI and DLNA.

8 ) This tablet also offers easy to use functions like Smart Movie Editor for editing and enjoying videos.

9) It is powered with Web Duet that allows the user mailing, messaging and SNS sharing with search functions.

10) Its on-screen Phone is compatible with LG Smartphones.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company says, “With tablets generating five times more traffic than the average smartphone, it’s not a huge jump to assume that tablet users need and want faster connectivity. “The combination of LG’s LTE technology with the tablet form factor is a clear advantage for consumers who use a tablet as their primary consumption device when on the move.”

Microsoft® and Nokia® partnership

On February 11, 2011, Nokia and Microsoft announced a joint venture regarding their future developmental strategies. Nokia is considered one of the best mobile hardware makers in the world. The company’s devices are famous for their excellent screen, high resolution cameras and other high end hardware designs. The Nokia products with their attractive, well designed and durable hardware designs can easily be compared with the other companies like Samsung, LG etc.

The only visible problem with Nokia is that the software installed by the company does not share the same standards as its hardware. While the present day smart phones have already been converted into pocket computers, Nokia devices seem to have fallen behind. This sentiment was shared by the CEO of Nokia, who confirmed the failure of the company to develop software that would come close to smart phones of other companies.  While Nokia was trying o develop its software standards, Andriod became very popular in less than two years. This made Nokia lose its leadership position in smart phone sales and proved to be a matter of concern.

Nokia therefore needed a very bold and productive move in the region of software technicalities to regain its top spot as a mobile leader. Joining hands with Windows Phone 7 was the best chance for Nokia to regain lost ground in the mobile industry. There are, however, some challenges that both Nokia and Microsoft are sure to face with this joint venture.

Prior to making a deal with Microsoft, Nokia was also in talks with Google in search of a platform for itself. Since Nokia already is working with an open source in Symbian so Google Andriod which also is an open source, should have served as the perfect platform for Nokia. It remains to be seen whether the partnership between Microsoft and Nokia will actually help in building the reputation of both the companies. Nokia has the largest customer base in Europe. Microsoft may have seen this to be a good opportunity to increase its market share in the region.

Dell® unveils 10-inch Windows® 7-based tablet

At the CES 2011, Dell unveiled a 10-inch tablet computer with the Windows 7 operating system. Earlier, Dell had introduced Android-based touch screen slates. Dell showed what the next generation Windows-based tablets would look like. The Dell tablet on Windows 7 will be run on the next-generation processor from Intel which are the Atom processors. Besides Dell, LG and Samsung are also due to shortly announce their Windows based products, with features par excellence.

The new Dell 10-inch tablet looks like their earlier announced Android-based 5 and 7 Streak tablets. The tablet is targeted at business users rather than a general community like the iPad. The general manager of Dell’s business group said that the company would like to follow the netbooks strategy of targeting education, manufacturing, medicine and financial services. He also said that they had taken a decision to go on with Windows. It does not mean that the Android platform will not be used in their range.

The Streak and the now available Android 10 inch device were showcased in the CES show this January. The Streak has received mixed responses. The new tablet fits into the trend of bringing along with use of consumer products like smartphones and tablets in the enterprise and workplace.

Dell is also probably using a new Intel processor, using the system codenamed ‘Oak Trail’ on a chip and is aimed at tablets and thin and light netbooks. Dell also unveiled the redesigned Latitude, Dell Precision T1600 workstation, and Dell Precision M6600 and M4600 mobile workstations. The Latitude supports virtualization from Citirx, VMware, and Microsoft, and comes with over 100 design improvements. Dell is the third largest PC manufacturer in the world and is recognized worldwide as an innovator in supply chain management as well as electronic commerce.

It was an eye opening experience when Apple launched its iPad 2 with a price tag of $499. Not only that there were all the latest features like Wi-Fi connectivity with 16GB space of data storage space (internal memory). What’s more, the most important it is thin and fast at the same time.

It really needs a lot of courage to stay updated and to deliver the most advanced technology for its customers. With each passing day technology takes a new turn and as a result there are more advanced devices at a low cost as compared to the earlier versions or that of the counterpart.

T-Mobile® G-Slate info page teases Android™ Honeycomb

T-Mobile in collaboration with LG has revealed the G-Slate to counter Motorola Xoom. It is an Android Honeycomb powered tablet. It will be the first 4G Honeycomb tablet to be available. This tablet would be one of the first to be powered by Android 3.0 which is designed for tablets keeping in mind their form factors and design. The Honeycomb is a platform which provides the user with an enhanced user interface and a rich experience in terms of widgets, multi tasking, browsing, notifications and customization. Jeff Hwang, president of LG Mobile Phones, said that LG is dedicated to continue its role as an innovation leader and was thrilled to announce its entry into the tablet market with the G-Slate. He elaborates on its key features by saying that it provides a rich multimedia experience with 4G speed and the latest in Android technology. It is also packed with the latest Google Mobile technology including Google Maps 5.0 with 3D interaction Google Talk with voice and video chat.

It has a display measuring nearly 10 inches with 3D capability, 3D recording capability. It is powered by the LG Tegra Dual Core CPU. It has multiple USB ports and HDMI connectivity options, and 4G forms an essential part of its connectivity package. One of its key advantages over Motorola Xoom is that Xoom comes with the option to upgrade to 4G while the G slate is already 4G enabled. This is quite an advantage for G slate as it will come bundled with T Mobile’s HSPA plus network. T-Mobile has already updated its network to speeds of 42 Mb per sec capability of 4G.

Android Honeycomb which would be powering the G slate comes with features like multi touch and video chats to empower tablets. It has a new and exciting user interface with high performance 2-D and 3-D graphics with support for multiple home screens. It provides support for multi core processors, multimedia options, enhanced connectivity options Google Talk with video chat support and a new web browser. It also has the killer Google Maps 5.0 with 3D panning features enabled.

The G slate is expected to be launched in the second quarter of 2011, and would probably follow the launch of Motorola’s Xoom tablet. Thus it might come into a market where consumers will be looking first for its 4G enabled services which Xoom currently lacks. These two tablets are being tagged as iPad killers but their first competition would be with each other. They both are powered with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 Core and is a much powerful device than the ARM based tablets.
