The LG Optimus G is a spectacular device, in part responsible for LG’s smartphone sales growth, and the Korean company is reportedly preparing a successor, the LG Optimus G2. In the meantime, and according to E-Price, LG has sent out launch invitations to the Taiwan media for the LG Optimus GJ on May 22.
According to the publication, the Optimus GJ will simply be a waterproof version of the Optimus G. Features and hardware specs will remain the same – the only differentiating factor is that the Optimus GJ will have the IPX7 waterproof standard. This rating will let you submerge the Optimus GJ in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes, whereas the IPX6 waterproof standard is resistant from powerful water jets (i.e. heavy splashes, rain, etc).
The Optimus GJ isn’t a surprise considering that the Korean company already has a waterproof version of the Optimus G available that released on Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo last year (pictured below).
While the launch event for the Optimus GJ is set for May 22, a few days after that on May 30 in Macau, LG has another launch event scheduled for a smartphone in LG’s popular “G” series. We’re not sure what the Korean company plans on announcing then, but it’s not a far-fetched idea that we’ll see the Optimus G2, or even the Optimus GK.
While I can’t imagine many people would go out and get the Optimus GJ simply for its waterproof prowess, at the core of it, it still has some excellent hardware. Similarly, Samsung is also going to launch a rugged Galaxy S4 version – the Galaxy S4 Active – at some point in the coming months.
Are you looking forward to seeing the Optimus GJ become available in Taiwan?
Got a sense of humor? You might enjoy this new video from BlackBerry Jam 2013
As in previous BlackBerry Jam keynotes, Alec Saunders, Christopher Smith and Marty Mallick are back, but this time they aren’t singing. Previously known for their hits “The Waiting”, “Keep On Loving You“, and “At Last“, this year the guys did something a little different and put together a parody of a reality TV competition. If you aren’t in Orlando right now, or if you missed the BlackBerry Jam keynote, this is your chance to see just what the Developer Relations team at BlackBerry has cooked up for your enjoyment.
While I personally always liked the BlackBerry band and admired them for putting themselves out there and doing something a lot of people didn’t “get”, I think this parody will appeal to a wider range of viewers. Take a look at the extended cut of the video above, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Thursday, May 16th marks the US premiere of the 12th Star Trek flick: Star Trek Into Darkness. Like the 2009 film simply titled Star Trek, the new Into Darkness is directed by JJ Abrams and follows the adventures of the crew of the [new] original Enterprise under the command of a reimagined Captain Kirk played by Chris Pine. While the action-oriented direction of the last film, cockier Kirk, aggressive lens flares, and design of the new old U.S.S. Enterprise might have ruffled a few feathers, the 2009 entry kicked up the production quality of Star Trek films by an order of magnitude or two.
Four years later, the new Star Trek Into Darkness has already premiered in a number of countries worldwide and will be landing in the US next week. The new film has a dedicated iPhone app and a villain that recorded his audition with his iPhone while on vacation in England. And the Enterprise itself has a bridge that critics likened to the design of an Apple Store.
Okay, we might be stretching here. We just love Star Trek and we expect that you’re likely a fan too. Statistically speaking, it’s not a stretch to make that assumption. So, why not watch some Star Trek this weekend before heading to the cinema to catch Into Darkness? There are ten classic films staring your favorite combination of Shatner, Nimoy, and Kelley or Stewart, Frakes, and Spiner, and of course there’s the 2009 Star Trek blockbuster with Pine, Quinto, and Urban. And they’re all on iTunes, plus 716 episodes of five series spread across thirty seasons. In short, there’s a lot of Star Trek to be watched, so with a new film coming up next week, you better get started now while you still have time.
You are going to see Star Trek Into Darkness, right?
