LG announced global availability of its unorthodox screen ratio sporting Optimus Vu phoneblet. The device will hit select markets in Europe, Asia, Middle East/Africa and Latin America in September.
The most important change about the globally available LG Optimus Vu will be the new CPU and chipset which it will feature.

4:3 format is more convenient for using the browser! Maybe that's why, LG has used that format :) For me it's great solution, very innovative!
