LG invites press to experience the new era of mobile computing


LG has been teasing their Optimus G smartphone for the last couple of weeks and now they are ready to reveal the US version of the device. Today LG and Qualcomm sent out invites to members of the press for a special event in New York on September 19th. The invite says, “Live without boundaries” which matches up with the previous messaging “Everything that was impossible will be possible.”

We already listed our 5 reasons to get excited about the LG Optimus G, so we can’t wait to see which carriers it comes to. Rumors suggest the Optimus G might launch on AT&T and Sprint as the Eclipse 4G LTE, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see more versions on other carriers.

This upcoming LG phone really has my attention, so I recently switched to the LG Optimus 4X HD as my daily phone. It is now one of my favorite Android devices and LG has addressed the previous concerns about software upgrades by sending out monthly over the air updates.

Previous comments have told us there are a lot of Android fans still angry about the botched T-Mobile LG G2x launch and poor software support, so LG will have to really impress us with the Optimus G to win back some fans.
