Yesterday LG announced the availability of the Quantum, the Windows Phone for AT&T, and today we are learning that LG is going to make it’s presence felt in the Android Market as well with a new addition to its Android Optimus Line code named the “Star”. The new Flagship Device by LG aim’s to be the first to launch a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1080p Video recording,  and a 8mp Camera. Rumor is that the LG Star will have a clean version of Android and not weighted down with any LG UI enhancements. Looks like the Star will also sport a front facing camera and power this dual core beast with a 1500 mAh battery. LG is bringin’ some heat in 2011!

  1. Nice LG, you give WP the Quantum and then actually release something desirable for Android. Don’t get me wrong I’m happy for Android fans but what a slap in the face to us WP fans. Is it just me or does it seem like no manufacturer actually capitalized on the release of WP.
    I mean none of the handsets even come close to the WOW effect this LG phone has. I understand the timing to market/OS sale stats/technology maturity/carrier contract are all issues at stake with device launches, but it honestly feels like none of the manufacturers really tried to be “THE” WP device.

  2. @cjc: Right? this device looks nice. Sort of iphone/Droid Inc on the front TP2 on the back side. Im not sure what happened with the WP7 manufactures, I mean the samsung one is nice but nothing else really stood out too much. Maybe some better looking ones will pop up on in 2011, Verizon maybe????

  3. @Donald: once the first gen handsets get fleshed out a bit more and become more readily available, and the OEMs see that they can sell them as well, then we’ll see OEMs put effort into it. What MS needs to do is to produce a benchmarking app that OEMs can run on the phones they manufacturer, and if the phone passes each part of a benchmark, then it will qualify as being a windows phone. This way it’s not restricted down to particular components, and they can all have the same or better performances.

  4. @soundman: Now thats a great idea. It would be great to see a list of all the benchmarks on a WP7 site. Really it should be a necessity to do something like this when you’re not producing the hardware alongside the software; ie. apple
