LG Panorama Note

Android Central @ CES

LG is set to show off a new "Panorama Note" feature for its stylus-toting Optimus Vu: II at CES 2013. The feature takes features of LG's current note apps that take advantage of the large 4:3 screen on the Vu, and combine it with some of the fundamentals of a panoramic photo. Basically you'll get a 3:1 scrolling note that you can move and edit, meaning you'll have more effective real estate for note taking. Like using a big pad of paper, and working on just one area at a time.

When using the app you'll be able to zoom all the way in -- up to 5.8x -- to view specific content, then back out again to see the entire scope of the note. LG will surely be showing off this feature at its CES booth here in Las Vegas, and we'll be hoping to get a hands-on look at it in the coming days.

PANORAMA NOTE FEATURE UNVEILED AT 2013 INTERNATIONAL CES

LG Shows New Panoramic Memo UX Feature in Optimus Vu: II

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 – LG Electronics will introduce a new feature, Panorama Note, on the Optimus Vu: II for the first time at the 2013 International CES, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Panorama Note allows users to create extra wide 3:1 ratio memos and drawings directly on smartphone displays.

Panorama Note feature was developed from the analog philosophy of scribbling freely on a large canvas and allows users to write, draw or jot notes while navigating the wide 3:1 ratio image. Panorama Note features 5.8 times zooming capability, easy navigation of the screen both vertically and horizontally via cursors and a Mini Map that shows the location of the viewed image in the original image.

“Panorama Note is just one of many user experience features that LG will be introducing this year to differentiate our mobile devices,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our UX features will be deeply integrated with our devices to take advantage of the smartphones’ specific hardware. The battle of smartphone specs will continue but we’re going to take the competition to the next level.”

At CES LG will provide an experimental zone where visitors can personally experience LG’s innovative UX such as QSlide, Live Zooming and Dual Screen Dual Play on LG handsets. The new Vu: Talk feature will also make its international debut at CES on Optimus Vu: II. The Panorama Note will be available on specific target devices in 2013.

What's newer than note?

So a scrolling 3:1 ratio image on a 4:3 screen, what is the advantage of this?

does the stylus have a housing this time? if not, why bother? youll just lose the stylus easily and then you have a phablet without the phab....

Bring back the asian models gezz...

Lg is comical and pitifully soft in the tech game. What a joke the original device was anyway.

vertebra says:

I don't think there is anything comical about a company coming out with a phone less than 6 months after Samsung releases their flagship device and blowing it away with a better processor, better screen, better materials with the Optimus G(Consumer Reports Phone of the year). Not to mention building a better Nexus than good ol Sammy. Gonna be a great year for competition!

eahinrichsen says:

Agreed! I think that this particular phone looks like a hideous, unusable beast, but the Nexus 4 is the best phone I've had since the Nexus One, and even surpasses the N1 in build quality and feel. The Optimus line in general is pretty strong, so hopefully their sales will start to dig into the Samsung Galaxy S line's and we can start to see a little more parity here.

Says the idiot who "owned" one of their phones a year ago, for no more than 2 weeks, and is now basing his opinion of the entire company on that one phone. -.- What a joke indeed.
