spectrum2

Just last week, LG revealed the Spectrum, an impressive new flagship phone for Verizon. A glance at the spec sheet showed some impressive numbers on paper, and we went hands-on during CES and came away impressed. The essential specs:

  • 4.5″ True HD IPS display (1280x720 at 329DPI), protected by Gorilla Glass
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor
  • 8MP rear camera, shoots 1080p video, 1.3MP front camera
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 4GB of on-board storage, 16GB micro SD card pre-installed
  • 4G LTE
  • Android 2.3.5 (Android 4.0 update promised)
  • 1830mAh battery (optional 3000mAh extended battery available at launch)
  • Dimensions:  5.33″ x 2.71″ x .41″
  • Weight: 4.99 oz.

Update: Looks like it was a pricing error, as the listing has been pulled. Bummer, dude.

The tour de force Asus Transformer Prime (which I reviewed in early December and came away highly impressed by) is listed at HH Gregg for just $400 - that's both in store (if you can find it one available, anyway) and online, too. That may not seem like seem like a bargain for the uninitiated who are more accustomed to the $400 price tag of the original Transformer, but keep in mind that this is the newer, much sleeker, and much more powerful Tegra 3-touting Prime model, which normally retails for $500

If you're looking for 4G LTE speeds without having to stay tethered to one carrier for the next two years, MetroPCS just announced a pair of new phones that may (or may not) make you want to hop over to the pay-as-you-go provider - the LG Connect 4G and Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G (sound familiar?).

The LG Connect 4G is Metro's most powerful phone to date, rocking a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under its 4-inch Gorilla Glass-protected NOVA display.

huawei_ascend_p1_s_three_colors

Just three days ago we told you about the 6.7mm Fujitsu ES IS12F, the "world's thinnest smartphone." Now, in what must be record time, Huawei has taken that title with the new Ascend P1 S, which comes in at 0.02mm thinner (6.68mm) than the ES IS12F. Tough break, Fujitsu.

Unlike the ES IS12F, the Ascend P1 S doesn't slack in the spec department. It features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD (960x540) display with Gorilla Glass, a TI OMAP 4460 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, an SGX 540 graphics processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB built-in storage, 8 and 1.3MP rear and front cameras respectively, GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA bands, and Android 4.0.x, all powered by a 1670mAh battery.

If the Motorola Droid RAZR's 7.1mm frame (at its thinnest point, that is) just isn't thin enough for you, take a look at Fujitsu's latest offering in the Japanese consumer market, the ultra-thin (but not all that attractive) ES IS12F:

The 4-inch device measures a paper-thin 6.7mm, weighs in at a mere 105 grams, and ships with Android 2.3 intact. That's not all this popsicle stick is offering, either; it's also water resistant.

One of the hottest gadgets of this holiday season, the Transformer Prime (see our preview and review), is scheduled to be released the week of December 19th - that would be any day now starting today. In anticipation of the launch, Amazon re-launched pre-orders for all four color/size combinations after they went dark, disappeared completely, and even got cancelled in some cases shortly after the first wave was sold out.

Although we heard rumblings that the Prime would be delayed, some lucky customers have already received their Asus Transformer Primes, and it was briefly available (again) on Amazon before quickly selling out (again). Based on the universally glowing reviews (including my own), you're probably well aware by now that the Prime is a truly excellent piece of tech. But how does it compare to its older brother, the Transformer (TF101)?
