LG To Lead The Aussie 4G Charge
LG have admitted they have dropped the ball compared to their competitors in the Smartphone race, however all of that is about to change.
And Aussies are in for a treat as a consequence.
Ben Glimmerveen, head of LG Australia’s Mobile Division told PC World magazine the company is “behind the game” in the smartphone market but has promised to be on the front foot when it comes to LTE 4G devices.
“We were behind the game in smartphones, we dropped the ball,” Glimmerveen admitted. “That’s a global admission and it’s good that we’ve done that. What we’ve done now is we’ve been on the front foot with the next tier of where this telecommunications phase is going which is LTE.”
Glimmerveen then proceeded to advise LG will release no less than four 4G Smartphones onto the Australian market before early 2013. This is great news for Aussie smartphone enthusiasts, albeit those on the Telstra network, as currently Optus and Vodafone do not have LTE services.
The Eclipse is promising a 13MP Camera, 1.5Ghz Quad Core CPU, 4G LTE and 2GB of RAM!
Having previously been owners of two Optimus 2X’s and an Optimus 3D, we have always been impressed with LG’s Android handsets and are thoroughly looking forward to seeing the next six months in with LG.
