March seems to be the month that all the flagship phones are coming to the surface, and one of these has been practically promised since last year. Australia seems to be the last stop on LG's Optimus G tour, because it's launching now, bringing high-end features to a world that expects a lot from its mobile phones.
Up until now, the Galaxy S3 has been a relatively premium experience. Both it, its 4G brother, and the Note 2 have carried premium prices, but if you didn't want to spend that much money and still wanted the phone, there may be something coming just for you.
The time is right for flagship phones, and LG's talked up Optimus G is finally hitting stores, with availability slated for within the next two weeks.
By now you probably know that when you see the term "4G," it means that the connection is going to be fast, and much faster than 3G. What you probably didn't know is that there are grades of 4G, and one manufacturer can now lay claim to the fastest 4G connection in a device.
HTC has added a new model in its “One” series of devices it launched last year, this one aiming to be more than just a me-too product, and adding in a metal body, high resolution screen, and some impressive camera smarts that compares more to compact cameras than the common smartphone.
Sony's first swing at a 4G LTE phone is coming to Australia, with the 5 inch Full HD smartphone boasting some premium tech, and hitting telcos within the next few weeks.
Once a market leader, the BlackBerry camp hasn't had much movement in recent years, as the handsets struggled to compete with Apple and Android. Now, though, there might be a fighting chance, as BB launches version 10 of its platform alongside new devices.
It didn't quite make it to the Consumer Electronics Show, but Sony has announced a new tablet that not only sports some of the high-end tech heading to its phones, but manages to be thinner than the smallest tablet from Apple, even with a bigger screen.
