  • Holiday Buyer's Guide 2006: Great Tech For The Clueless


    With so much tech goodness available, it’s all too easy to forget that some of the best products are the ones that don’t require a Comp Sci degree to master. After all, just because you’re a genius and can figure out how to work the latest cell phone, computer, TV or digital camera, doesn’t mean your friends and family can. To that end we’ve put together a brief… Read More

  • LG DA70 All-in-One TV

    LG DA70 All-in-One TV


    Looks like LG is working it’s way back into the home entertainment market with the first product in their TV-PC series. Tagged the DA70, it was launched yesterday in an enticing all black 26-inch LCD television with PC functions letting you watch Family Guy reruns while surfing the net for the newest and greatest stories from the Crunchgear team. Equipped with an Intel Celeron M430 CPU… Read More

  • New LG Includes Touchscreen, Mysteries

    When Apple releases the iChat Mobile (or, ya know, iPhone, or whatever), many of us blundits (blogger-pundits) expect it to feature a touchscreen of some sort. There aren’t as many touchscreen-enabled phones as one would think, given that the technology has gotten less expensive in the last few years. Save for certain smartphones, we don’t see them on many handsets, the… Read More

  • LG UP3Flat A Shuffle Killer?

    LG UP3Flat A Shuffle Killer?

    Look out Apple. LG is looking to introduce a few low-capacity MP3 players into the market and not only do they look like a 1G Shuffle mixed with a Chocolate, they look better than the iPod Shuffle and most DAPs out there. LG’s UP3Flat MP3 player is going to come in sizes 512MB to 2GB and has an incredibly streamlined and sexy look with touch-sensitive buttons. All models will come with… Read More

  • LG Chocolate To Get Windows Mobile Treatment

    LG Chocolate To Get Windows Mobile Treatment

    Talk about coming out of left field. LG’s Chocolate phone has become the new “must have” phone for Verizon customers. It even released the Chocolate in holiday colors, and we all know that when you start re-releasing a phone in multiple colors: it’s officially trendy. But in a surprise move, LG is going to start manufacturing a Chocolate with Windows Mobile 5.0 on… Read More

  • Cingular Launches CU400, Adds PTT

    has launched on Cingular’s website with something we didn’t know about: Push To Talk. We knew Cingular had plans for PTT, but we didn’t think it would debut with such little fanfare and on such a pedestrian phone. Sure, it’s got 3G, but it’s a cheap-o otherwise. In addition to the CU400, PTT can be enabled on the Pearl, the Moto V365, Samsung D407, and SE Z525a. Read More

  • Verizon's QWERTY Phone enV of Others

    . The enV is Verizon’s follow-up to its popular V QWERTY flip-phone. The basic features are the same: you have a candybar-style phone that opens on the side to display a full keyboard and a secondary screen for texting or emailing. The OS, however, is Verizon’s standard phone system, no smarts there. Some of the hardware, however, has been upgraded. Read More

    LG Chocolate Becomes Red Licorice, Green Jello

    Damn LG, it must feel good to be a gangsta! After the success of LG’s popular Chocolate phone, it was released in white. Now, just in time for Christmas the holidays, comes the LG Chocolate in Red and Mint Green. The red looks decent but the green color is absolutely atrocious. All the features are exactly the same as the previous versions of the Chocolate, so don’t get your hopes… Read More

  • LG Prepping Low-End 3G Phone for Cingular

    Cingular, to its credit, is really pushing its 3G service hard, making it accessible to even modest handsets, like the LG CU400. Feature-wise, it’s pedestrian at best, with Bluetooh, a VGA camera, and dual displays, all things our mom’s phone has. But it does have connectivity to Cingular’s UMTS/HSDPA network, and should support DUN, meaning if your laptop sports Bluetooth… Read More

    LG VX9900 enV Coming to Verizon


    According to Gizmodo, the LG VX9900, apparently dubbed the enV, is set to drop on November 27. The smartphone features a 2.0-megapixel camera, EV-DO, VZNavigator, microSD and dual stereo speakers. Rumors set retail price at $320, but you can knock that down to a more realistic $150 if you’re willing to pawn off two years of your life to Verizon.

  • LG's Chocolate Platinum for GSM Clears FCC

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/EDGE successor to the Chocolate, sometimes known as the Chocolate Platinum, just cleared the dreaded and danger-fraught FCC approval process. While we think Platinum Chocolate sounds like an ingredient in Cadbury's FabergĂ© Creme Eggs, this is one dope slider. Looking like a slightly wider, yet cleaner, version of… Read More

  • LG VX-8600 Chocolate Flip Details

    for a while, we never really knew what specs the Verizon-bound phone was going to have. Well, now we do. The phone will have a 176×220 pixel display, 800mAh battery, touch-sensitive music keys on the front, 1.3-megapixel camera, 15FPS video capture, 8x digital zoom, micro SD slot, MP3/WMA playback, MPEG-4/3GP video playback, and Bluetooth A2DP support.

  • White Chocolate Coming to Verizon For Halloween

    Mmmmm, white chocolate. The white version of Verizon’s popular (is it?) LG phone is coming next Tuesday, just in time for halloween. The specs are the same as the black chocolate: 1.3-megapixel camera, micro SD slot, Bluetooth stereo A2DP music, WAP 2.0, and Flash themes. What’s different will be the price, which is $360 if you buy it retail, $230 if you sign on for one year, and… Read More

  • LG 1900 R 19-inch LCD Monitor

    Perhaps Biggs, with his week’s worth of Korean knowledge, can explain to us what Samsung means when it’s hyping up its 19-inch monitor on its product page. At first sight it makes your hearts beat and stir up your mind. It is a embodiment of design and technology. Imagine the beauty of life with LG FLATRON. With a 2000:1 contrast ratio and a 4ms response time, this monitor should… Read More

  • LG Adds Leather to New TV Phones

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/TV. You read that correctly. We like the LG checker keypad thing it's been doing, and the fact that the phone comes wrapped in your choice of leather coverings, complete with pockets and other wallety things. The phone itself is pretty nice too, using a DMB tuner to pick up that fancy digital TV they have all over Korea. Read More

    LG's Sleek C1 Tablet PC


    LG’s quickly becoming one of the “designer” labels, well, everything, seeing as they make phones, refrigerators, laptops and various electronics. This LG C1 Tablet PC continues their trend, with the glossy black cover, Samsung LCD TV-like screen, and white keyboard. All very good, but what about the features? It’s got an Intel Core Duo processor, nVidia graphics, and a… Read More

  • LG Goes Flip-Chocolate With The VX-8600

    The upcoming chocolate flip-phone from Verizon is called the XV-8600, and comes with the same chocolate design as the original slider version of the chocolate (VX-8500). The flip phone XV-8600 has a lower resolution display compared to the 8500, but everything else is intact. To refresh, stereo Bluetooth, EV-DO, one-megapixel camera, microSD slot, music player and external touch-sensitive… Read More
