LG Revolution Software Update VS901ZV8 Coming Soon, Brings 'Verizon Remote Diagnostic Tool'

An update just hit the Verizon Support docs site that details an upcoming OTA for the LG Revolution. Before we get into to the details of this update, (and you get your hopes up); no, it's not Android 4.0. Sorry, Revolution owners.

What it does bring though, is a bit of a curiosity. Listed as the solitary 'New Feature' of the device is the Verizon Remote Diagnostic Tool, a VNC-like application that will allow VZW customer support to remotely view and control the device for troubleshooting purposes, with the user's permission, of course.

[MWC 2012] Hands-On With The Optimus Vu: It's Vumongous

We're not exactly sure why, but LG has developed a gigantic new device called the Optimus Vu. And while the growing market for "mega-phones" seems to be getting more and more crowded every day, we have to say, LG's takes the cake for ridiculousness. The Vu's 5-inch display may not be absurdly large, but it is absurdly shaped. A 4:3 1024x768 (think CRT, Windows 98, etc.) display on the device makes it ridiculously wide, and also very oddly proportioned.

LG "Heavily In Discussions" With Google To Manufacture A Nexus Device

Bringing a taste of truth to age-old rumblings of an LG Nexus device, the head of LG's Smartphone division, Ramchan Woo, has stated (in an interview with Cnet) that the manufacturer is "heavily in discussions" over a possible Nexus device, adding "we're working on it." While this quote is compelling, Cnet rightly highlights a few sticking points in the deal.

On one hand, while there is no evidence that Google will give Motorola preferential treatment following its acquisition, concerns have manifested, and partnering with any manufacturer (why not LG?) would quash any rumblings.

LG has officially unveiled the Optimus 4X HD, a rather impressive Ice Cream Sandwich-powered phone which ended up being too exciting to keep under wraps until MWC.

We're not sure whether the "device workshops" are public or employee training. We also don't know if they take place before or after the release of the devices.

Yesterday on their Facebook page, LG Mobile teased that something was coming today, with a heavy emphasis on "L". As promised, they revealed just what the L is today via a press release, and it turns out to be 3 new Optimus smartphones: the L3, L5, and L7.
