Default LG is Getting Serious About Android

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://gizmodo.com/5725434/lg-optimus-black-meet-the-worlds-new-slimmest-phone-for-now?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+gizmodo/full+(Gizmodo)' target='_blank'>http://gizmodo.com/5725434/lg-optim.../full+(Gizmodo)</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"At 9.2mm thick, the&nbsp;Optimus Black&nbsp;from LG is the new world's thinnest phone, and is pretty light too, at 109g. It's also got a 4-inch NOVA screen for viewing in direct sunlight, too, and a 2MP forward-facing camera."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1294365059.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Up until now I haven't seen any high end or otherwise very exciting Android phones from LG.&nbsp; It looks like they've stepped up to the plate with this thin phone that will be upgradable to Honeycomb.&nbsp; Besides being very bright the NOVA display is to have low power consumption, true blacks, and pure whites.&nbsp; I'm not sure if this is a new form of OLED but I'm guessing it may be since I don't think it's possible for LCD to do true black.&nbsp; <a href="http://www.talkandroid.com/25628-t-mobile-announces-the-4g-android-3-0-powered-lg-g-slate-releases-teaser-video/?utm_source=feedburner-ta&amp;utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Feed:+AndroidNewsGoogleAndroidForums+(Android+News,+Rumours,+and+Updates)" target="_blank">T-Mobile has also announced</a> a very nice looking Android tablet from LG called the G-Slate.&nbsp; It will be the first Honeycomb powered 4G tablet on T-Mobile.&nbsp; I love all the Android competition and innovation going on!&nbsp; One thing's for sure, choosing my next Android device will not be easy!&nbsp; Any thoughts on devices you've seen?&nbsp; How about a favorite phone or tablet?</p>

Nova's screen is IPS, just like the iPhone and iPad. Wish it was 4.3" though!
