We've known it was coming soon, and now LG's taken the wraps off the Optimus Vu, a Gingerbread 5 inch phone — I refuse to use that 'phablet' word — due for release in March. Don't get too excited just yet; that March release date is only confirmed so far for South Korean telcos at this stage, although I wouldn't be too surprised to start seeing imports of it relatively soon after, presuming that its LTE can slide down to 3G. Official specifications include a 1.5GHz Dual-Core Processor, 5 Inch 1024×768 IPS Display, LTE, 32GB storage, 8MP Camera and Android 2.3. Gingerbread's a bit annoying, given Android's track record with speedy upgrades, although LG is apparently due to Ice Cream Sandwich-ify it within three months of launch. [NetbookNews]
