LG Optimus VU vs. Samsung Galaxy Note vs Lenovo LePad S2005 (specs)

Samsung Galaxy Note, LG Optimus VU or Lenovo LePad S2005?

Lately, I see the rise of a distinct type of cell phones: hybrid smartphones. These “tablet-phones” can be called “tabletphones” or even “phablets”. They have a display of 5 inches minimum and are an intermediate model between smartphones and 7 inches tablets. The first such device was Dell Streak hybrid with 5-inch display, known as the “Dell Mini 5”.

The most popular tablet-phone model is the Galaxy Note (I9220), launched last fall with a 5.3 inch display and dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 with a frequency of 1.4 GHz. Samsung has launched a 4G version: Galaxy Note LTE (I717) with the same characteristics, but with 1.5-GHz dual-core Scorpion processor.

Lenovo also launched a tablet-phone late last year, LePad S2005, a smartphone with 5-inch display, for China market.

The latest hybrid phone is Optimus VU. It was announced yesterday by Koreans from LG. Optimus VU, is equipped with 1.5-GHz Scorpion dual core processor and feature a memory of 32 GB. The smartphone will be presented at the LG stand (Hall 8) at Mobile World Congress – held in Barcelona between February 27 and March 1, 2012. LG Optimus VU will be available starting with March 2012, first in South Korea.
