LG Optimus Intuition / VU + NFC

LG Optimus Vu nfc enabled big smartphone

The LG Optimus Intuition / VU, NFC chip, very big 5″ screen, and LTE.
Competition for the Galaxy Note and Panasonic Eluga Power.
The 5″ handsets offers tablet-like viewing on a smartphone.
Viewing documents, books and internet content is easier with the 4:3 aspect ratio, according to LG.
Two programmable nfc tag stickers bundled with the handset (LG calls them Tag+).

Some key features can help users to increase their productivity.
– A built-in “QuickClip” hotkey allows users to capture screenshots and memos with a single push.
– Jotting notes is also possible with a finger or with the dedicated Rubberdium pen.
– The Polaris Office app allows users to open documents, spreadsheets or presentations while on the go.

At only 8.5mm, the Optimus Intuition/Vu is one of the slimmest LTE phones currently on the market. The Optimus Intuition/Vu features “floating mass technology”, which makes the handset appear even slimmer.

Initially launching with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sand-wich is already in the works.

There is no place to store the stylus on the device .. LG calls it the Rubber Dium, (0 – 1 for LG).
It isn’t clear if the pen is included or a separate purchase. I didn’t found first hand info, sorry. Rubberdium stylus is included!

The Optimus Vu is (March) available in Korea (LG-F100S SKT and LG-F100L LG U+).
Should be (soon/June?) available in other Asian and European countries.
Available in Australia in late Q4 or early Q1, 2013.
The U.S.? There is an LG VS950 at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with Verizon LTE. This looks a lot like the Optimus Vu .. ! (LG Intuition now available at Verizon)

Update aug.’12; According to LG, the VU is quite popular and more than 500.000 Optimus VU ‘s sold in Korea.
The LG Optimus VU will be coming to select markets in Europe, Asia, Middle East/Africa and Latin America in September ’12.

LG Optimus Vu review;

“simply a non-starter. It’s unfriendly for any real productivity and for most average-sized palms, at that. For a device that requires two hands to operate, you’d think that Rubberdium would be always at the ready, but as we’ve discussed, you probably won’t ever have it on your person. And if you do, you’ll quickly become frustrated by the stilted experience of having to switch between pen and finger to navigate the OS. In this sense, as a true phablet, it fails. It fails hard.”
“It’s as if LG’s designers didn’t take the creation of this phablet seriously. And in the end, neither should you.”
