This is really great phone from LG and its going to give tough fight to its competitors,but full specs of this phone is stll unknown. We still dont knw about its RAM,onboard memory, radio, primary camera, processor etc..... I think RAM on this thng will be 512 mb and if lg wants to make it more desireable than atrix thn it cud be 1 gb; onboard memory like lg optimus 2x can be 8gb/16gb which cud be expanded through card slot, processor most probably will be dual core nvidea tegra 2 processor which clocks 1.2ghz( or are we going to se quad core processor to debut on this mobile ???); now we come to most interesting part 'primary camera' i thnk it wll be 8 megapixel in all probability, but if lg wants to surprise mobile lovers then it cud even come up with 12mp or more to give fight to N8, and we can't discard this assumption as device which is packing 2Mp front camera can have 12mp at back, but v have to wait till lg finally announces this phone along with its full specs........
one more thing this phone in all probability shud come out with 'Android 3.0 Honeycomb', as this phone is scheduled to release in Q2, and by that time Honeycomb would hav arrived in the market......but let us nw wait and see what happens........ :-)

Good work LG. Keep going. I am with you. I think moreover Android apps, you should start your own store for apps like ovi store or samsung apps store. Hope to see that LG phones have the shares closer to Samsung this year...:)

Just because it may look like an iPhone, it doesen't make it worse. In my opinion, it is better. I don't like iOS.

Does this phone have a LED notification light, & that is the difference between this & the LG Optimus x2??

How original design :( Standard features, though WiFi direct seems nice.
iPhone success and touch screens totally killed design innovations and color usage on phones (well one company has still colorful phones)
