LG Intuition: The Answer to Samsung's Galaxy Note

Galaxy Note or Intuition?
Samsung made a large bet almost a year ago - in October 2011, when they released their Galaxy Note smartphone. It came to criticism of "not being able to fit into a pocket", but overall, consumers bought up the Note as quick as wildfire. Samsung announced that they sold over 10 million devices - mind you, they got about 10 million pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III as well.

Today, it's getting some competition (only in the USA - and until Samsung releases their Note 2). Today is the online launch of the LG Intuition, LG's answer to the success of the Galaxy Note (the first "phablet").
It will be exclusively carried by Verizon wireless, with a price tag of $199 on select 2-year contracts. It will appear in Verizon retail stores on September 10th.

Specifications are as follows:

  • 5'' Display, 4:3 aspect ratio, 650 nits of brightness
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera (1080p HD video recording)
  • 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • A stylus (Rubberdium pen), with QuickMemo - an app for note-taking.
  • NFC, including two Tag+ stickers for activating features on the phone
