    LG Optimus Vu is a 5" CDMA Phablet... Phone flashing possible?



    LG Optimus Vu
    's dimensions are 139.6MM x 90.4MM x 8.5MM.

    The phone operates at frequencies of CDMA 800 / 1900 / CDMA2000 1xEV-DO / HSDPA 2100 / LTE 800 MHz.

    Key Specifications:

    • Chipset: 1.5GHz Dual-Core Processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon)
    • Display: 5-inch (1024x768) IPS Display
    • Memory: 32GB eMMC and 1GB DDR2

    • Camera


      : 8MP with AF LED Flash (rear) and 1.3MP (front)
    • OS: Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • Battery: 2,080mAh

    This is a phone we should try to obtain if possible. LG let us know that they are working on ICS or the device...

    I agree with indicia here. A 4" screen is about as big as can handle. If it is much larger than that, I think it will look crazy on my belt or in my pocket.

    Nothing on eBay, and I'm pretty sure the top price might get me one. The one below will probably say it's not in stock. The rest I don't trust. Don't have that kind of dinero anyways.

    A little birdie told me that it would most likely be coming to the US market.

    LG VS950 hits the FCC with Verizon LTE, looks suspiciously like the Optimus Vu

    LG and Verizon have something special in the works, and judging from the information we were able to glean from some mysterious documents submitted to the
    FCC


    (and subsequently approved today), it appears to be Big Red's version of the
    Optimus Vu


    . While the docs don't come out and specifically mention the Vu name or the phone's iconic 5-inch display, the diagram (seen above) of the LG VS950 shows the exact same speaker grille setup on the lower left as well as the SIM flap on the upper right. But if that weren't enough to clue us in, you can clearly see something that looks curiously like an antenna on the top left -- in the very same place as the Korean Optimus Vu. The VS950 sports NFC and offers LTE band 13 and GSM 850 / 1900. The phone's already received Bluetooth Certification, so we're hoping this means it's in the final stages of testing. Let's just hope it comes with a newer version of firmware than its Korean counterpart.

    Why complain? If I can carry my ipad you can carry a 5" screen. ( I put the ipad like in between my basketball shorts and jeans/other shorts? Lol)
