LG's Optimus LTE2 is the first Android smartphone to include 2GB of RAM. It also comes with a 4.7in HD screen and wireless charging capabilities. Fingers crossed we eventually see it in Australia.
LG hasn't traditionally faired well in the high-end smartphone market, but that certainly isn't due to a lack of trying. Its latest effort is the Optimus LTE2, the first Android smartphone to include a whopping 2GB of RAM.
LG has a history of equipping its top-end smartphones with the very latest technology. It was the first smartphone manufacturer to produce a phone with a dual-core processor — the Optimus 2X — and was also first with a quad-core powered smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD. It has now switched the focus from processor to RAM with the LTE2. (In case you haven't realised, the "2" in the name obviously refers to 2GB).
RAM aside, the biggest attraction of the LG Optimus LTE2 appears to be 4G LTE connectivity. LG hasn't finalised specifications for the device, which is currently only scheduled to launch in Korea. However, if it does launch in Australia it will most definitely work on Telstra's 1800MHz 4G LTE network.
The LG Optimus LTE2 is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The dual-core processor includes an integrated LTE chip on board. Most users shouldn't notice a speed difference between a dual-core smartphone and a quad-core one during regular, daily use so don't be fooled that a dual-core processor is somehow a downgrade.
The LG Optimus LTE2 has a 4.7in True HD IPS display with a resolution of 1280x720, hence the "HD" name. It also has a rather impressive pixel per inch rating of 326ppi putting it ahead of the 4.65in Samsung Galaxy Nexus (316ppi), the 4.7in HTC One X (312ppi) and the 4.8in Samsung Galaxy S III (306ppi), though equal with the 3.5in iPhone 4S.
The LG Optimus LTE2 comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera along with a 1.3-megapixel front camera for video calls and includes integrated wireless charging. LG says the inductive charging feature is compatible with any charger that uses the wireless standard. The phone comes with a 2150 mAh battery.
The Optimus LTE2 runs the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software, though it appears to come with an LG UI overlay. Extra features include a burst mode for the camera and a voice recognition function that allows you to snap photos without pressing any buttons.
There is no official word on an Australian release, but the LG Optimus LTE2 should hit Korean shelves in June. LG plans to release at least four LTE smartphones in Australia by the early part of 2013, so its very plausible the LTE2 could be one of those.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
