The five-inch LG Optimus Vu was recently made available for sale in South Korea.

The device is supposedly the answer of LG to the Samsung Galaxy Note. However it seems that this particular device will cost more compared to the smartphone / tablet hybrid device of Samsung.

With the availability of the LG Optimus Vu, the Samsung Galaxy Note will now have something to look out for in the market. The device offering from this South Korean device manufacturer will have a price tag of around $900 for an unlocked version.

The five-inch display of the LG Optimus Vu is going to be an IPS display that has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which optimizes readability. This has led to assumptions that the device will be positioned by the company as an e-reader option. The device will run the Gingerbread Android although the Android 4.0 update will be released by the company soon.

The LG Optimus Vu will also offer support for LTE networks.

The price tag of the LG Optimus Vu is around $200 higher compared to the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The market performance of the device in North America also remains to be seen due to the price tag that the device is being offered.

For the moment no details are available as to when the LG Optimus Vu will be offered in North America although if the size is increased there might be a possibility that the device will be more competitive in this particular market.
