LG Nitro HD hands-on (update: video)
AT&T stole some of LG’s thunder earlier this week when it unveiled the company’s LTE flagship — the Nitro HD — before the handset’s official coming out soirée. Well, tonight LG’s gone and thrown that fete anyway, introducing us (once again) to its 4.5-incher. But you have to wonder why the company’s even bothering to roll out yet another Gingerbread-baked device when Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus is already out of the gate and leading the Android charge with ICS — not to mention the current availability of rival heavyweights like the Rezound and Droid RAZR. Still, the phone’s packing some very respectable specs, with a “true” HD 1280 x 720 IPS display, dual 1.3 / 8 megapixel shooters, 20GB of storage (4GB internal / 16GB microSD) and a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8060 processor running the show. Is it too late in the game for LG to make its beast matter? Follow past the break as we gather our first impressions of this tardy to the party entry.
