LG Optimus Vu (unlocked) Review
The good: The LG Optimus Vu is NFC-enabled, it has a decent screen, and for its size it's slim and lightweight.
The bad: The Vu is expensive, its aspect ratio is odd, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and you have to carry the stylus separately.
The bottom line: Though the Optimus Vu fits into the novel "phablet" category, forking over $900 for any Gingerbread phone isn't worth it, no matter what the screen size.
