Verizon may have passed on the Samsung Galaxy Note, but that doesn’t mean that it is disinterested in tabletphones. According to an LG press release, consumers can expect the LG Optimus Vu sometime this quarter.
Furthermore, according to DroidLife, the device will be receiving a name change to the LG Intuition when announced by Big Red in the coming weeks. When available, consumers will supposedly be able to pick up the new tabletphone for $200 on a new 2-year contract, or $550 at full price.
With its large 5-inch display, this will be the first tabletphone from Verizon as it opted not to offer the slightly larger one from Samsung. After the release of the LG Intuition, HTC is expected to come out with the next mega-phone, though it is rumored to sport an impressive 1080p display, which the Intuition does not offer.
More Hardware Details:
The LG Intuition will sport a 5-inch IPS Touchscreen with a 1024 x 768 resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. It will launch running on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but an upgrade to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) will be offered. According to LG, it will offer a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage capacity.
