LG this morning announced that it's bringing the Optimus True HD LTE to the Middle East, starting with Saudi Arabia. Here in the States, we know the Optimus True HD LTE as the LG Nitro HD, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8MP camera, and of course the 4.5-inch IPS HD display at 1280 x 720 resolution.
With its American relative the LG Nitro HD already having received its update, LG Optimus 4G LTE owners on Bell in Canada have had to wait a little bit longer. But no more, according to a tweet sent out by from the official Bell Twitter account. LG Optimus 4G LTE owners can go ahead and grab Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich through system updates.
As we already know, AT&T will be updating the LG Nitro HD with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on July 31st but just in case you simply cannot wait, there is a new leak now out there claiming to be to be the official final build. You'll need to use the notably crappy LG Windows Suite to get it loaded up but it's there and available for download.
As with all things not officially official, we...

If you own a LG Nitro HD and fancy loading up a leaked version of Ice Cream Sandwich onto it, you'll have to set aside some time to get it taken care of. A presumably early build of ICS is now available for download and thus far appears to be running quite well for most folks according to the responses to it over at XDA. Several variations of the device have been tested including Bell, AT&T...

Known here in the U.S. as the LG Nitro HD, the 4.5-inch smartphone packs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8MP camera, and of course the amazing True IPS HD 1280 x 720 display offers up quite an...
Good news for anyone looking to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich on some of LG's latest hardware -- CyanogenMod 9 nightlies are now rolling out for the (GSM) LG Optimus LTE and its AT&T-branded counterpart, the Nitro HD. With its 720p display and 1.5GHz dual-core OMAP chip, vanilla Android 4.0 should feel right at home on the Nitro HD and Optimus LTE. We're sure owners of rooted devices...

AT&T this afternoon issued a news release for the HTC Vivid's Ice Cream Sandwich update, and mixed in with the mention that the HTC Vivid is the first U.S. smartphone to get the ICS update (and that AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to push out ICS) is a list of phones on AT&T slated to get the update to Android 4.0. Nothing there really surprises us, but it is good to see that the...
LG says it's sold more than one million Optimus LTE smartphones worldwide since the device's launch late last year. The Optimus LTE made its international debut in LG's native South Korea last October, before moving to Japan and North America in December. On AT&T it's the Nitro HD, on Verizon it's the Spectrum, and Canadians will recognize it as the Bell Optimus Eye. The names may be...

LG is an Android manufacturer that all too often goes unnoticed. But in reality, LG has been churning out devices that can compete with the best of them. One such device is the LG Nitro HD, LG's latest flagship smartphone that has found a home on AT&T's oven-fresh LTE network. LG hasn't created a million-dollar ad campaign as Samsung has for its Galaxy S II line, and it doesn't come with a...

LG's got an event laid on for early next month in New York City. And while the invitation reads "All will be revealed on December 1," we're getting a little more than perhaps we were supposed to, as some versions of the invite image (ours was renamed) pointed toward the Nitro HD, otherwise known as AT&T's unannounced version of the Optimus LTE. And that's exciting not just for the high-speed...
With LG having announced the Optimus LTE for the Korean market not long ago, and then having a variation the device arrive on Bell Mobility in Canada the question of whteher or not it would see any US carrier launches arose. While we won't take a simple image as fact -- clearly the idea of the Android 2.3 powered device making its way to AT&T has been bounced around and if and it arrives it...
