A Peek at the LG Revolution [CES 2011]

CES 2011 saw the launch of the LG Revolution at a press conference announced by Verizon. The LG Revolution, one of the top 10 wireless devices, had most of its specifications announced publicly; however, there was one feature that stood out among the rest – the Netflix application. Yes, an Android with a Netflix application.

The 4.3 inch screen of LG revolution looks like a slimmer, smaller version of the EVO 4G, released by HTC. It is much more compact and very convenient to use and handle. This is owing to the concave-shaped backside of the sturdy hardware of the Android, that helps it sit perfectly on the inside your hand.

The phone is complete with 4G LTE capabilities and enough can’t be said about its super speed, as official figures are not out. The phone is anticipated to be released around March or May of this year. Even though the production version of the LG Revolution is not yet ready, the one on show at the LG booth at CES received rave reviews. Tech reviews described it as looking very sophisticated for a product that was still technically incomplete and the highlight of the usage experience was the swiftness of Android responses.

Though many people have noted that the LG Revolution does not flaunt a dual-core processor, the speed of its processes due to the 4G LTE, has kept them from noticing it as a flaw during the demo at the CES. Though the screen fell just a bit short of the popular AMOLED-screens, it has several other features that more than make up for it. It flaunts an Android 2.2 platform that has many features and applications for users and developers and can be upgraded to Android OS version 2.3, Gingerbread. The android also has a 5MP camera with 1080p HD Video Record, 1.3 MP front facing camera for video chat and 16GB internal storage capacity with microSD means. The processor is a 1GHz Snapdragon and the LG Revolution sports a mobile hot spot.
