T-Mobile has finally acknowledged the upcoming availability of a phablet (the Galaxy Note), and well, it looks like Verizon Wireless will also be launching a large-screened smartphone. Though, in the case of Verizon it will not be a Samsung device. Instead, Verizon will be launching the LG Vu, which actually has a slightly smaller display — 5-inches as opposed to 5.3-inches.
Otherwise, the display on the LG Vu has a resolution of 1024 x 768 along with a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 processor with Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage space, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and support for the Verizon 4G LTE network. Oh, and we cannot forget to mention the stylus. Yup, similar to the Galaxy Note, the LG Vu will have a stylus of its own. The LG Vu will also arrive running Ice Cream Sandwich. More specifically, Android 4.0.4 ICS.
With that, while we have now seen the images and we had gotten the specs — we are still missing the official announcement from Verizon. And that means we have yet to learn two key details — when the handset will be available and how much it will cost.
