Pre order the LG Optimus 4X HD


Clove have dropped us a line today to let us know that the LG Optimus 4X HD is now available to pre order. At £456 including VAT it isnt cheap but you do get a lot for your money. Clove are listing the 4X HD to arrive in June.

The Optimus 4X HD is LG’s first quad-core smartphone, following on from the manufacturer’s introduction of the first ever dual-core smartphone just 12 months ago. Combining NVIDIA’s latest 1.5GHz Tegra 3 with True HD IPS display, the LG Optimus 4X HD delivers PC-like performance in the palm of one’s hand.

It’s not just the power of a quad-core handset that the 4X HD offers, but an HD multimedia experience. The NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor is the world`s only 4-PLUS-1T Quad-Core mobile processor designed for high-level multimedia performance but utilizes a fifth battery-saver core to handle less demanding tasks such as active standby and music playback. When running at full speed, the 12-core graphics processing unit (GPU) in Tegra 3 delivers a visually rich experience and console-quality game playability.

A mysterious new Toshiba tablet appears at MWC 2012

toshiba-quad-core-77-1For some reason, Toshiba decided to sneak out a new quad-core screamer of a tablet at Mobile World Congress this year. It’s a 7.7-inch device with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core processor powering it. The device is called the AT270, and is ultra-thin and blazingly fast! In fact, the guys from SlashGear said it was the thinnest at the show and left them thoroughly impressed. Here’s a list of its specs:

  • Tegra 3 quad-core
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16-64GB of internal storage.
  • Rear facing camera and micro-SD slots
  • Barely thicker than the 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 1280 x 800 AMOLED HD 7.7? screen – extremely vivid and crisp images

Right now, this one is just a prototype, but looks to be something Toshiba plans to bring to market at some point… hopefully soon.
