  1. Let the battle of the phablets begin. LG was the first out of the gate with a competitor to Samsung’s oversized Galaxy Note, revealing the Optimus Vu in its own press presentation long before this week’s Mobile World Congress. But they’ve brought it along to demonstrate next to the other high-end offerings, and who are we to protest? The phone’s unique 5.0-inch, 4:3 aspect ratio screen is certainly large, but it remains to be seen whether it is indeed in charge. Judge for yourself from our hands-on below.

  2. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will probably work with any other Wacom-compatible stylus, Samsung says. That makes it a potential killer tablets for artists who are already in the Wacom ecosystem.
