There may not be LTE roaming enabled with global roaming SIM cards yet, but the devices are still very usable on 3G networks. In addition, calling and messaging app users can also utilize the faster connectivity to make and receive VoIP calls and send messages, and many do so using the LG Vu, the LG Optimus LTE, and the LTE Tag.
To many LG consumers, the company has been teetering a bit on the “maybe we will, maybe we won’t” fence in regards to their promised Android 4.0 upgrades. Thankfully, it’s now starting to take action: if we go by poorly machine-translated Korean, the Optimus LTE, Optimus LTE Tag and Optimus Vu will all get Google’s latest starting June 4th.
Everyone gets the new UI 3.0 layer, but those who’ve leapt on the Optimus Vu’s phablet frame will get “additional features” that will take advantage of the extra-wide dimensions for side-by-side note-taking.
LG’s remarks still leave some gaps in the Ice Cream Sandwich story, but it’s definitely great to see that users who are owners of LG’s devices in at least some corners of the Earth can enjoy some of those Android 4.0 perks in the very near future.
