4.3-inches is quickly becoming the standard for smartphone screen sizes.  At least that’s what many a smartphone manufacturer would have you believe when it comes to their Android powered handsets.

Hitting the Korean market tomorrow is the LG Optimus Big.  On board is Android 2.2 with a slight LG twist, a 5 megapixel camera, 16GB of built-in storage, WiFi direct, Bluetooth 3.0, HDMI connectivity, a 1500mAh battery and a 1Ghz dual-core processor.  Honestly, we’re surprised that it doesn’t sport an 8-megapixel shooter like the G2x (aka Optimus), but what you lose in optics you gain in screen size and clarity (it’s LG’s Nova display), and boasts a 700 cd/m2 brightness.  

A US launch isn’t in sight, at least not yet, but you can probably track one down on the import market.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
