The Tegra 2-powered LG Star has reappeared in a new spy photo shoot. The device runs Android 2.2 Froyo instead of the expected 2.3 Gingerbread but still managed to outperform the Nexus One.
LG Star features a large 4 inch touchscreen display with 800×480 resolution and the powerful NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. It also features an 8 megapixel camera with LED Flash, full HD (1080p) video recording, front-facing camera, HDMI out port, MicroSD card slot and 15000mAh battery.
The guys at Phandroid recently shared a few pics of the LG Star. Check out the leaked pics of the LG’s powerful smartphone below. To find out more pics, head over to this page.

Here are the images showing 12 Megapixel prototype from Nokia. However this could very well be even a mock-up or a Chinese clone or even an older prototype.
The phone does not seem to follow Nokia’s recent designing trend but instead combines a bit of Nokia N96 and N86 8MP styling. The materials used are a combination of both hard plastic and steel.
The screen looks like it isn’t a touchscreen and it looks at least 3.0″ or more. Also the resolution seems to be more than the ordinary Nokia phones. The Operating System UI also feels different again raising the question of a mock-up or clone but it doesn’t seem to have the cheap feel. Could be a non-touch version of Symbian^3.
The phone is seen housing a 12 Megapixel camera unit and a Xenon flash. Also beneath the camera unit is a very large and weird battery cover slider. Apart from that we can also see the volume up/down rocker and camera shutter key on the right side. And on the left side we can see the microUSB port, 2 speakers and a microSD card slot.
The phone is available for purchase at an online auction and the seller claims it to be fully functional and that he found it in a bar.

uptodateksa2 gives us another E7 hands on showing multitasking and F-Secure from Ovi Store.
As well as being an antivirus for your phone, it will also allow you to remotely wipe content from your phone if it’s lost or stolen.
Probably for some, the data is as precious as the phone itself (as if you haven’t backed up then the data is irreplaceable – worse if there’s sensitive data)
You can programme a back up number which will be sent a text message of the number if the lost/stolen phone has their SIM replaced. Reply with a code and it’ll wipe the device.
This comes with E7 by default.

Number of subscribers crosses 200 million
The country’s largest telecom service provider Bharti Airtel has touched the 200-million subscriber base, out of which over 150 million are Indian subscribers. To mark the occasion, the company unveiled its new brand logo aimed at synergising all its global operations.
The company, which had acquired Zain Telecom operations in 15 African countries earlier this year at $10.7 billion, will change the brand name to Airtel from Zain on Friday. The company’s new look would be launched in Bangladesh within the next 30 days and in Sri Lanka in a couple of weeks, said Bharti Airtel Chairman and Managing Director Sunil Bharti Mittal.
Besides the logo, the company has also changed the signature Airtel tune with a new one by music composer A R Rehman.
“Today as we expand on the global stage, this new brand identity gives us the opportunity to present a single powerful and unified face to our customers, stakeholders and partners around the world,” said Mittal.
The company, however, refused to reveal the investment figures. Bharti Airtel will also launch its much-awaited 3G mobile services by the end of next month. Bharti had won spectrum for 3G services in 13 circles.
“Telecom is a very capital intensive sector and we need serious commitment of investment in the sector for its development… don’t take this sector for granted. We are subject for all regulatory policies. We subject ourselves to whatever policy change,” he said.
Tata DoCoMo, the GSM arm of Tata Teleservices, has already launched 3G services in nine circles where it has spectrum. Besides, state-run firms BSNL and MTNL are already offering 3G services. While Vodafone Essar plans to launch its 3G services by the end of the first quarter of 2011.
