    The new Verizon version of the LG Optimus Vu is coming, and it is awe inspiring, if you like freakishly big Frankenstein monster-style devices. The Verizon version of the phone was pictured "in the wild" and compared next to a Samsung Galaxy S III. Not only is the device a 5-inch "phablet," but it also uses a truly unconventional 4:3 aspect ratio. It's display will be 1024x768 HD IPS. It also has four capacitive buttons at the bottom and the following specs:
    • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 with Adreno 220 GPU (MSM8660)
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 32GB storage
    • 8MP/1.3MP cameras
    • stylus
    • Android 4.04
    • 4G LTE
    How many of you guys are interested in this oddity? He's a friendly and potty trained monster. He just needs a good home...

    Surely (don't call me Shirley!) that's in some sort of casing to "hide" it's true shape...

    I wouldn't hate it so much if all the iphone like bars hanging out on the top and sides didn't make it gigantic. if it was literally just a screen and a FFC on the front it would be awesome.

    Edit: never mind didnt see the 4:3 aspect ratio. It is and always will be awful.

    I saw some people recently saying that 4:3 is really optimum for mobile devices but I can't remember why exactly. It may be optimum, but it sure isn't ergonomic to say the least. I have pretty big hands and that would be awkward even for me.
