Verizon's LG Intuition Gets OTA Update To Software Version VS95022B, Finally Receives Android 4.1

When the latest version of Android starts rolling out, it's well-known that the vast majority of devices out there will never get updated. It's not the best situation, but it's one that at this point in time, many of us go into knowingly. So you LG Intuition owners out there, you already know you're not going to see KitKat come to your device, but at least you will finally now be able to leave Ice Cream Sandwich behind. The latest OTA update will bump your handset up to Jelly Bean - the first one, as in Android 4.1.

Most of the other changes won't get anyone excited.

Verizon Offers VMware Virtualization On DROID RAZR M And LG Intuition, BYOD Is Just $125 Away

Using a work phone and a personal phone at the same time sucks. That's the motivator behind the Bring Your Own Device ("BYOD") trend, wherein employees use their own smartphones for work-related tasks. Most people do this anyway, but it can become a real problem if you're working with sensitive data. That's where VMware comes in. This company specializes in virtualized PCs for remote access and security, and after years of development, it's expanding into mobile with Android. Too bad it's only available on Verizon at the moment - and only on two mid-range phones at that.

VMware's Horizon Mobile solution works like this: your company sets up a default mobile workspace, complete with apps, security measures, and even a wallpaper if they want.

Verizon Approves Build VS95011B For The LG Intuition, Should Begin Rolling Out Soon

Verizon's LG Intuition has long been an awkward kid at the lunch table. With a 5" display at 4:3 resolution, it's had a difficult time being accepted, much less competing. Even so, it has not been completely forgotten – Verizon is preparing to roll out a maintenance update to the device that will remove the Color and V Cast apps, fix some assorted bugs, and should improve speakerphone quality. There is one curious detail to this update, it also adds the Amazon Appstore. Are Verizon and Amazon becoming closer friends?

While this update may not bring a new version of the Android OS, the international version – the Optimus Vu – is expected to receive a bump to 4.1 sometime this quarter.

[Update: Now Free] LG Intuition On Verizon Wireless Only $99 For New Contracts And Upgrades From Amazon Wireless

Update: The price of the LG Intuition on Amazon has been dropped to a penny, a full $150 less than you'd pay at Verizon. We doubt this deal will last long, so if you're in the market for one (why?), now's the time to buy.

Maybe you like the whole phablet idea. Maybe the thought of a handset with an aspect ratio which rivals that of your old CRT monitor sounds like a good thing to you. Really, it sounds like you actually want the Intuition from LG.

If that's the case, why spend full price? Verizon's asking $150 with a two-year agreement for this oversized behemoth.

[Deal Alert] LG Intuition Shows Up On Wirefly For $150 With New 2-Year Agreement Or Upgrade

Do you like phones that look like they've been through a taffy puller? Then the LG Intuition (aka Optimus Vu) may be the phablet for you. The Intuition for Verizon was announced last week, and is available officially starting today, though Wirefly has (as usual) managed to offer it at a slightly more reasonable price: just $150 on contract (new agreement or upgrade). That's $50 less than Verizon is selling it for, so there's no denying it's a deal.

There is denying, though, that you might actually, you know, want this phone. I suppose the one thing you could say about the Intution is that it's definitely a, uh, conversation starter.

Verizon Officially Announces The Massive LG Intuition, Available Online Beginning September 6th And In Stores On The 10th

Three short days ago, we heard that Verizon could be launching the behemoth LG Intuition - America's version of the Optimus Vu - beginning on September 6th. Looks like that leaks was pretty much dead-on, as Big Red just officially took what wraps were left off of this oversized monstrosity.

Available online from September 6th and in-stores on the 10th, the LG Intuition packs a massive 5" 4:3 display, 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera, and Android 4.0.

Trying to take a page from the Samsung Galaxy Note, the device will also ship with a "pen" of sorts, called the Rubberdium pen, which is basically just a standard stylus and doesn't feature any sort of enhanced functionality like Samsung's S Pen.

LG Intuition Could Launch On Verizon As Early As September 6th, In Retail Channels On The 10th

It looks like the recently-rumored LG Intuition for Verizon could be coming to fruition within the next week. According to some leaked shots from Verizon's equipment guide, the overly-large device should hit Big Red's website on September 6th, with retail availability from the 10th.

For those who may be unaware, the Intuition is Verizon's version of the oddly proportioned LG Optimus Vu. Featuring a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear shooter, Android 4.0.x, and 4:3 5" 1024x768 display, the Intuition is the device designed for folks with big and hands and even bigger heads. Let's face it - it's going to be hard for normally proportioned people to look natural with this 5" brick stuck the side of their face.

All joking aside, if this 5" phablet is calling your name, you should be able to grab it mid-next week for a couple hundred bucks when you sign a new contract.

LG Optimus Vu Reportedly Coming To Verizon As The 'Intuition' - New Name, Same Ridiculous Proportions

We've known for a while that Verizon is slated to get its own variant of the massive LG Vu, but it seems the "Vu" name just isn't good enough for Big Red. According to a new leak that landed in the hands of Droid Life, the Vu for Verizon is slated to be named the... wait for it... LG Intuition.

While we don't know exactly when it will be available, the Vu Intuition should be available for $199 with a two-year agreement ($549 off contract).  Looks like this is as close as we're getting to a phablet on Verizon; unless, of course, the rumored 5" HTC monster becomes a reality.
