"Leaked photos of an LG Android smartphone supposedly called the
"B" reveal what could be the slimmest smartphone yet -- even
skinnier than the iPhone 4. The screen also appears to be extremely
bright. "Everybody's searching for ways, however big or small, to
one-up the iPhone, which is supposed to be the slimmest device,"
Laura DiDio, principal at ITIC, told LinuxInsider.
"Hot on the heels of its announcement of the Optimus 2X
smartphone this week, LG is reported to be working on yet another
Android mobile phone.
"LG itself has been somewhat coy regarding the smartphone. After
Phandroid's story broke, LG posted a message on Twitter via an
account dubbed "LGmobileCES11" inviting attendees of the upcoming
Consumer Electronics Show to see the LG B at the conference in
person. Later, that tweet was apparently removed and replaced with
a message and a link directing the account's followers to check out
an article about the LG B on UnwiredView.com -- which sources its
information from the original Phandroid news item."
