Verizon Releases The Gigantic LG G Vista And The Rugged Kyocera Brigadier, $99 Each On-Contract, With Little Fanfare [Update]

Update: Verizon's specification page has been changed to indicate that the LG G Vista has an "HD" screen. It looks like there was an error in the original spec list. We're going to assume that means that it's a 1280x720 screen.

LG Aims High With The Tab Book, An 11-Inch Tablet-Keyboard Combo Powered By An Intel Core i5

Update: An LG representative has informed us that the Tab Book can be purchased with both Windows and Android in an optional dual-boot configuration. There are no plans to release the product outside of Korea, at least for the time being.

LG's current Android tablet strategy is a little baffling. They jumped back into Android tablets with the admirable G Pad 8.3 last year, a well-equipped device with a premium build and a premium price. Then they launched the G Pads 7, 8, and 10.1 this year... with the usual plastic bodies and specs well below the first one, aiming at the budget market.

[Update: Gear Live (sprat) Too] TWRP Recovery Now Available For The LG G Watch (dory): Phenomenal Flashing Power, Itty Bitty Screen Space

Big things are happening for the smallest of Android devices. Over the last month, we've seen several attempts to extend the capabilities of Android Wear, some have worked out, while others haven't fared so well. Most of the activity has come in the form of 3rd-party apps, so there hasn't been much action for dedicated modders. That is, until today. Team Win just posted its first official custom recovery for the LG G Watch (dory). Say goodbye to your warranty folks, the age of ROMing your wristwatch is upon us.

As you can see from the picture, the default TWRP theme isn't quite optimized for such a small screen, so those of us with larger digits will have to be careful.

Living With Wear: Some Observations After A Month With Android Wear

Like other Google I/O attendees, I picked up an Android Wear device at the conference. I went with the LG G Watch. What follows is not really a review so much as my experiences and thoughts about Wear thus far, having lived with it literally every day since picking it up. I'll include some of my opinions on the platform (ignoring for now the hardware), and what I think might be relevant insights and comparisons to Google's other efforts (like Glass). If you've not had your fill of editorial Wear discussion yet, let's get started.

Looking For An Inexpensive 10.1-Inch Tablet? Best Buy Has The LG G Pad 10.1 In Stock For $249.99

LG announced the new G Pad tablets a while back, but they're still hard to come by in the US. However, the largest member of LG's new mid-range family is probably in stock at a Best Buy near you (or shipped), and it's pretty cheap at $250. It's no Shield Tablet, but no one would blame you for picking one up.

Official TWRP Recovery Now Available For The LG Optimus 4X HD, Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 LTE, And Xiaomi Redmi 1S

Rooters and ROM flashers of several devices have new options today, as the developers behind the popular Team WIN Recovery Project have added three new Android devices to their growing list. The somewhat dusty LG Optimus 4X HD (from when phone names were crazy long), the LTE version of Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (because Samsung never really got over the crazy long name thing), and the Xiaomi Redmi 1S all get access to the touch-based recovery software, with downloads available from the website.

The Optimus 4X HD is probably the most widely-used device of the lot, despite being released over two years ago.

Sprint's LG G2 Gets An OTA Update With Support For LG's Knock Code Security System

One of the features LG pushed hard with the announcement of the G3 was its Knock Code screen locking feature. While the device is asleep, you can tap on the screen in predefined locations to wake it and unlock instantly. Knock Code actually debuted on the G Pro 2, but now Sprint's G2 is getting it as well.

Customers Frustrated At Lack Of Extra Chargers For The Gear Live And G Watch - Samsung Will Offer Replacements Soon

Manufactures have been scaling back the included extras that come with hardware for a while now - you won't find included headphones or cases with any of the latest flagship phones. But you can generally rely on getting a USB cable and a wall-wart charger at least. Such is the case with the current Android Wear devices, the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. But if you have one, you'd better hold onto that charger like it's made of gold, because it might as well be. At present there doesn't seem to be any way to get a replacement.

LG Announces The G3 Beat, A 5-Inch Mid-Range Alternative To Its Flagship Model, Coming To International Markets Soon

For the biggest of the big manufacturers, loaning out the name of your flagship model to smaller and cheaper phones is a no-brainer. You get potential customers who want the look and at least some of the features of the newest, coolest device, and you also get to reap the rewards of your brand marketing. So it is with Samsung and HTC's various "Mini" models, and now, LG's G3 Beat. Hey, at least they're not trying to call a 5-inch phone "mini."

The G3 Beat downgrades the best-in-class spec sheet of the full-sized G3 with a 5-inch, 720p LCD screen, a 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor, a mere 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage with a MicroSD card slot.
