It will come in three colours and will ship in May. That’s assuming Pebble can fill the orders fast enough.
Not as catchy as ‘Chromecast’ but this is Redmond’s attempt to go head to head with Google over the inter-device streaming space. Plug this into your regular TV and you can connect your Android 4.2.1 or Windows 8.1 PC or tablet to a proper screen with decent sound.
Pictured here first from the left along with its siblings the Sprint, Leon and the Joy comes the LG Magna.
The Magna is an Android Lollipop-based smartphone has a 5″, 720×1280-pixel screen and an unspecified 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The Magna also has an 8MP and a 5MP front and rear cameras. There’s 1Gb of RAM and 8Gb of integrated storage backed up by a microSD card slot.
Although targeting the mid-market, LG wouldn’t be drawn on any pricing.
