April 28th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

Running Android 2.2 (with a 2.3 update en route this year), the Optimus 2X shows LG’s first foray into the top-end of the smartphone market.

February 21st, 2011 by LG Blog UK
One of the hot topics at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona was the development of the ‘superphone’ – a smartphone complete with a dual-core processer. The first dual-core smartphone launched was the LG Optimus 2X at CES earlier this year, labeled the “fastest phone on the planet” by Shortlist magazine, and LG followed this with the launch of their first tablet, the dual-core sporting LG Optimus Pad at MWC. The technology behind both of these devices is the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processing chip. The Tegra 2 has a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, which is the world’s very first mobile...

Mobile World Congress 2011

January 31st, 2011 by LG Blog UK
We have barely had time to wipe the sweat from our brow after the hard work before and during CES 2011, but already MWC 2011 is fast approaching. Kicking off in Barcelona on the 14th of February, Mobile World Congress is the biggest event in the mobile technology calendar. First appearing on the technology calendar in 1987 when holding your mobile phone to your ear was a test of strength and endurance, Mobile World Congress called Cannes home until 2006 when it relocated to Barcelona. The reason behind this move may have something to do with the leg-aching 365,000m2 of...

CES 2011: The best of LG at CES

January 12th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

With CES over for another year it is time to stop, catch our breath and have a look at all the technology and innovation that was unveiled in another successful year at CES. LG took home awards in 9 categories including a much-coveted “Best of Innovations” award for its 3D ready, Internet-connected 55-inch full LED LW9500 HDTV.

Smart Upgrader ST600

‘Smart’ was introduced as one of the key themes for LG at this year’s show, with Smart phones, Smart Home Appliances and Smart TV on display. Whilst this was undoubtedly a theme shared by a lot of manufacturers exhibiting, LG caught a lot of eyes with their ST600 Smart upgrader. Essentially the ST600 is a peripheral box that is plugged into any television with a HDMI port and gives access to LG’s Smart TV content, including access to thousands of movies, customisable apps, videos and the ability to browse the Web through an easy to navigate interface. Indications for the UK point toward Smart TV allowing access to BBC i-Player, Acetrax, Viewster, Google Maps, Twitter, Facebook, Accuweather and Picasa amongst numerous others*.

The ST600 Smart Upgrader was also listed by Esquire Magazine as one of their ‘Best of CES 2011’ products.

Optimus Black

One of LG’s most talked about products unveiled was the LG Optimus Black handset. Part of LG’s Optimus smart phone family, the Optimus Black is a stylish and super slim smart phone running Android 2.2, but with a promise to receive 2.3 before long.

One of the big talking points surrounding the Optimus Black is the screen, more specifically the brightness of the screen. Using LG’s proprietary NOVA technology the Optimus Black promises the brightest screen ever kicking out 700nits of luminosity, whilst also promising a 50% reduction on power consumption when used indoors in comparison to a standard LCD display.

Smart Grid

Sticking with the Smart theme, Home Appliances were also given the Smart makeover this year, with plenty of new technology on display. But it was the LG Smart Grid that had us salivating at the prospect of controlling our home appliances remotely using a smartphone or a tablet. Undoubtedly one for the future, but amazing nonetheless, Smart Grid links your appliances including dishwasher, washer & dryer, refrigerator, oven and even a HOM-BOT robotic vacuum cleaner. The Smart Grid will then let the appliances work together for economical and practical reasons. For example, using Smart Grid LG washing machines can program washing machines to do the washing at the most cost effective time, utilising the “Recommend Time” and “Lowest Rate” options. In a similar way LG’s refrigerators can adjust their functions to save on energy bills at peak times, or ramp up cooling power when energy rates are low.

The World’s Largest Full LED 3D TV

Named by T3 magazine as one of the ‘Best 3D Gadgets of CES 2011’ the LZ9700 is the biggest Full LED 3D TV in the world today measuring in at a living-room remodeling 72inches.

Aside from the obvious jaw-dropping effect of its size, the LZ9700 is packed full of features including 400Hz, Smart TV and a Magic Motion Remote Control as standard.

Super Slim LED Monitor E2290V

The CES Innovations Award-Winning E2290V monitor is sure to be the must-have monitor for the year to come. Measuring in at an unbeatably slim 7.2mm in depth, the E2290V not only offers a great picture due to its LED lighting and 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio, but also a stylish design.

With a response time of just 2 milliseconds and Full HD 1080p, the picture on the E2290V will remain clear and bright even during the fastest action sequences making it ideal for watching Blu-ray movies or gaming.
