LG Creates World's Thinnest 1080p LCD – 5.2-Inches Diagonal, 2.2mm Thick, And A Tiny Bezel

Phones are always getting thinner. For whatever reason, that's a metric that matters to the general public more than battery life. As the phones slim down, so do the screens.

[New App] Libon For Android Comes To The US, A VoIP Client By Orange That Wants To Shake Things Up

There are many VoIP clients out there for Android, such as Skype and Viber. They save users from having to place calls over their cell network, potentially using up minutes that they may not have. This behavior eats into carriers' profits, so it's no surprise that they'd prefer if we avoided putting these apps on our phones.
