why no love for LG?
HTC's Thunderbolt will be hitting Verizon as the first 4G LTE device.
HTC, yet again first to market with the latest 4G device, now at Verizon.....lol.
LG makes quality phones, but the problem is they market the lowest end phones. 5+ MP camera? Both the Thunderbolt and the Bionic have 8+ MP. 1GHz single core processor? Motorola has a dual core. LG's Revolution barely matches the specs of the Droid X. X has a 8+MP camera but no 4G. Revolution give the 4G but no 8+MP camera. It will be a good phone, no doubt, but unless they sell it at $199.99 it's gonna have a hard time getting attention away from the Bionic and Thunderbolt, or even the Samsung 4G.
How does induction charger work? never heard of it but it sounds like they are doing something for the better. Is that a solar type of built in charger which I heard talk of
Induction Charging means you can set the phone onto a special mat or pad to charge instead of having to plug in a cable. There are exposed metal contacts on the back of the phone, usually by way of a modified battery door that you have to buy separately, which are supposed to link up with the mats but not get shorted by setting it on a random metal surface.
It's not solar, although I'm sure someone will make a charging mat with a solar panel if they haven't already.
Most marketing material will tell you this is ...
Induction charging works on the principle of "induced" current; this is the same reason a transformer (think wall-wart power supply) works. Because the energy that can be induced drops off dramatically with distance, it effectively requires contact, but a magazine or other relatively thin insulator wouldn't appreciably affect performance.
But, I have a question about LG that is spurred by a remark I saw here. How fast is LG to come out with software upgrades? I saw that as a complaint against Samsung here.
I don't really understand though, because I thought all of the software updates were pushed by Verizon instead of the manufacturer.
