Updated: clarified availability online/in stores
Verizon Wireless and LG today announced the Intuition, a rebranded version of the LG Vu, which has a 5-inch display with a 4:3 aspect ratio and 650 NIT brightness rating. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Intuition offers a note-taking application called QuickMemo, which can be used with the Rubberdium pen (a.k.a., stylus) to write directly on the screen and interact with applications.

The Intuition will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Other features of the Intuition include an 8-megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and mobile hotspot. The LG Intuition will be available online starting September 6 and in stores September 10 for $199.99 with a new two-year contract.
