No LG Optimus 3D Max for the UK, hahaha! Gutted

No LG Optimus 3D Max for the UK, hahaha! GuttedHaving a terrible dose of man flu, I was in desperate need of some cheering up this morning, and Lucky Goldstar has delivered (and then some).

See, according to Engadget, the LG Optimus 3D Max, successor to the dozen-selling LG Optimus 3D, won’t be coming to the UK. I don’t know about you, but I’m heartbroken. Why, God, why?!

A meaty press release accompanies the official European launch of the LG Optimus 3D Max, with Germany apparently being at the epicenter. But it’s bad news for us in Blighty. Aww man!

LG hasn’t confirmed the Optimus 3D Max’s price just yet, but suggests it’ll be at the high end of the smartphone spectrum, so presumably it’ll go head-to-head with the likes of the HTC One X and the imminent Samsung Galaxy S III. A. Mazing. Good luck with that, LG.

The spanking new LG Optimus 3D Max is 2mm slimmer and 20g lighter than the original chunkathon, at 9.6mm thick and weighing a healthy 148g.

LG Optimus 3D Max specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3in autostereoscopic (glasses free) display, 8GB internal storage, microSD support, and twin 5MP cameras.

Oh, and the LG Optimus 3D Max will run – wait for it – Gingerbread (Android 2.3). You want one, don’t you?

Well other than it not giving better battery life due to using it for 3d I'd say the chunkathon and hefty were at odds with last week where we were saying make phones bigger and let my battery last a bit longer.

Good point. There is a silly arms race going on: every time a feature/technology improves, something is coming along to make that advantage null and void. Read bigger battery in specsheet, and surely there s a feature to use more battery juice than gained...
More RAM, More RAM-hungry apps, skins etc ad absudum...

But hey, same goes everywhere - we get faster broadband, websites get heavier, downloadable content gets heavier, and we get less local storage in mobile devices so we have to use the cloud more... even the pirates have fallen into that trap: there are now 8GB BRDisk rips of B-Movies on Torrent sites!!! Nuts....

well, you should know what you seed, right? Nah, I meant bull-sh*t movies - though, I 'spose there IS an overlap... And who on earth says "blue movies"?

Lewis clearly. No wonder he got so excited by that game that shall not be named.

Most movies are BS though.
