Verizon Wireless and LG Debut The Intuition, a Samsung Note Competitor?
The LG Intuition has been announced by Verizon and LG. One could say, at 5” with a stylus pen, that it is a potential Samsung Note competitor. Considering that they run the same OS, one could also say they are pretty much the same phone. Fortunately, LG probably isn’t big enough to get caught in the lawsuit dragnet.
The three most defining features of the Note – 5” screen size, stylus pen (called the Rubberdium on the Intuition), and personalized notes that can be scrawled on just about anything – are all present in the LG Intuition. The 650 NIT display will have a 4:3 aspect ratio. The Intuition will be powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, and will have 1 GB of RAM, NFC, an 8 MP rear-facing camera with LED flash and 1080p recording, and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera.
In fairness, there is a little something new that the Intuition brings to the table. Along with the phone, you’ll also receive two NFC stickers that you can place anywhere – in the home, office, or car. Tapping the phone on one of those stickers will switch the phone between one of two modes – you can create a work mode and a personal mode, or a personal mode and a car mode. The stickers are reprogrammable, so you have the freedom to change your mind. The modes are differentiated by turning on or off designated settings and features. If you choose to create a work mode for yourself, you can also keep in mind that the Intuition features corporate data encryption, multi-headed VPN, and remote wipe.
The LG Intuition will be available online on the Verizon website starting September 6th. The phone will hit Verizon stores on the 10th. The Intuition will cost about $200 with a two-year contract.
