Show me some Android, LG!

Just imagine the LG Renoir running Android. You know, proper email, proper instant messaging, extensible application layer, shit-shit-shit-HOT 8 megapixel camera, super music capabilities… I’m hopeful, I really am, that at some point this year — EARLY this year — somebody from LG will formally announce a few handsets running Android. There’s just something so […]

The LG X110 ultra light laptop

When I was in Val d’Isere the other week, it was, alas, mostly work-work-work. I did manage to put on some skis and arse about on the green slopes — the real focus of my attentions was the technology I’d brought with me to field-test and the iPhone 3G users all over the place. Val […]

Dick Tracy’s watch phone becomes a reality

LG has brought 1930s cartoon gadgetry to life, with the invention of the LG 3G watch phone that will be shown off at CES next week. It’s been touted as the world’s first 3G watch phone, not that we’ve seen many plain old watch phones around before. Known solely as the LG-GD910, it has a […]

Thoughts on the year, 2008 in review

As the year starts to draw to a close, we thought we’d look back at significant moments in the mobile world during 2008. Ponderings where you can sit down with your grand children one day and say ‘yes, I was there when it happened’, or if you’re too senile by then, they can tell you […]

LG Mobile Developer Network: Look how complicated this is!

Yup, you read that right. YES there is an LG Mobile Developer Network. Finally. Excellent. Unfortunately it is stuck in the year 1997. Yes indeed! If you’d like to get your application on to LG handsets, it’s as simple as: 1. Spend AGES writing a sodding proposal. (Ok so it’s only two pages…) 2. Formally […]

LG Cookie sync’ed… finally!

After a restart, and another restart, we were good. My LG Cookie is connected! The key function I want is the ability to sync my contacts: I click on the SYNC button. I get the following problem: Well, I started Outlook as I thought you’d need it opened. Ok. Let me close that then. Ok […]

How do you sync an LG handset?

I’m quite impressed with the LG Cookie handset. On first glance it reminds me of a cheaper, mass-market version of the LG Renoir. I suspect that’s exactly what it is. I do like it. It’s the sort of thing I can see a 17 or 18 year old girl walking into Carphone Warehouse and selecting. […]

The LG Cookie KP500

I have just taken delivery of one of LG’s newest models, the KP500 ‘Cookie’ handset. The last LG handset I actually used for any length of time was the LG Shine and LG Secret – a good 6-8 months ago. I’m on record as being deeply unimpressed at the ‘insides’ of the LG range (I […]

“Mobile-Crushes” – They end now!

Now I know I’ve said it a couple of times in the past few months, but I’m looking for a new phone. The reason I haven’t yet bought one isn’t because I can’t be bothered to purchase one, or because I can’t afford one; in fact I’m more than happy to now pay a little […]
