LG has been busy making folks aware of their new QuickMemo feature for the past little while with the first U.S. device getting it being the LG Viper 4G LTE. Now, they're rolling out what is a maintenance release upgrade for the Optimus L7, L5 and L3 that will add it to those devices as well.
To accompany the release, LG will also be running a new commercial to highlight the feature. In case you're unaware of QuickMemo, it allows folks write using their fingers on captured screen images that can then be shared with others via text, chat, or email.
The video above gives off a good demo of it in action, although it starts off rather annoyingly. LG has noted they'll be rolling out the update globally come the end of Q3. If you're looking for the full press release, you'll find it below.
