While we’ve known Verizon would be carrying the LG Optimus Vu for quite some time, but as we know Verizon likes to get a hold on branding. According to materials received by Droid-Life, Big Red will bring the device to market as the LG Intuition. Not only that, but we should be seeing it come in at a $200 price point.
We can also tell from the image that the on-contract price is only after a new two-year agreement, and that the full off-contract price is $549. That seems moderately reasonable for what’s being offered here. It’ll be a 5 inch, dual-core slate that comes with Android 4.0 and LG’s custom Optimus UI.
The phone has caught a considerable amount of flak for its aspect ratio, but I suppose Verizon and LG believe there’s a market to cater to for them to be preparing a launch. While I’m not a huge fan of the aspect ratio at this size I can see where someone might appreciate a bigger phone.
That said, we’re still not entirely sure when to expect the device. Verizon’s version passed the FCC a short while ago, and that means they’ve been given the green light to sell the device in the United States. That doesn’t mean the device is finished, but we’re closer than we can imagine for the time being. Is anyone looking to buy this phone once it hits retail?
