LG seems to be on a throttle revealing devices day on day just a week before MWC 2012, yesterday we had news on the Optimus Vu which is now further followed by the Optimus Tag LTE smartphone that makes its launch in Korea ending February this year. The word “Tag” attached to the device exhibits NFC capable functionality implementing LG’s Tag+ stickers that allow switching profiles, enabling GPS, Bluetooth etc. For example: If you enter your workplace you may swipe your phone to enable silent profile, similarly to turn on navigation or GPS you may use the Tag+ sticker in your car to switch on the features enabled on to it. This seems to bring some good changes as we generally tend to forget stuff while we are on the run, with this new implementation it could be a lot easier to increase productivity and simplicity as these are user programmable and can be redone as many times as per your needs and moods. Sony has also brought a similar feature on to its selected Xperia handhelds that is also known as “Xperia Smart Tags” allowing NFC capable communication. The Optimus Tag LTE has a 4.3-inch IPS display, a 1.2GHz dual core processor, and the good old Android Gingerbread 2.3 to top it up.
