Over the last couple of weeks, phone makers such as Motorola and Nokia have been scrambling to announce new models before being swamped by iPhone 5. This week, LG previewed its Optimus G Android phone while HTC introduced its new Windows Phone 8 handsets, the 8X and 8S. Here's a closer look.
But perhaps Optimus G's most fascinating technological advance is its 13 megapixel rear camera (a version with an 8 MP camera also will be available) and a front 1.3 MP imager. These pictures, by the way, are of the Korean version that goes on sale next week. The U.S. version may have slightly different cosmetics.
