Verizon and LG finally made the Intuition official this morning, giving it an online launch date of September 6, with in-store availability coming the following week on September 10. The device will run $199 on new 2-year contract and have the ability to connect to Big Red’s ever-growing 4G LTE network.
For those that haven’t followed the story of the Intuition (known as the Optimus Vu overseas), simply think of it as a phone/tablet hybrid. With a 5″ HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera, 1.3MP front camera, NFC chip, and Ice Cream Sandwich, it’s got everything you could ever ask for in a phone on the spec front. The only thing you have to sell to yourself is the odd 4:3 aspect ratio on the display, and the fact that it’s unbelievably awkward to hold. Is it a phone or a tablet?
The device also includes a Rubberdium pen, a suite of office apps, is business-ready, and is currently the option if a 5″ device is something you have been dying to have. If you would like to see the phone in action, be sure to check out our first look from CTIA in May.
