- LG Electronics (LGEIY.OB) has lifted the wraps on a curved smartphone with a flexible OLED display called the LG Z, according to ZDNet Korea. The device is reportedly in mass production, will be announced in the immediate future, and has a release date set for later this month.

Friday, Aug 3010:13 AM| 9 Comments
- Phablets overtook both tablets and portable PCs in the Asian market during Q2, according to IDC. 25.2M smartphones with 5"-7" screens were shipped during the quarter, compared to 12.6M tablets and 12.7M portable PCs. The rise in popularity of the phablet is breath-taking: shipments grew 100% Q/Q and 620% Y/Y.
- Phablet pioneer Samsung (SSNLF.PK) has lost its gargantuan grasp of the market. The Galaxy Note model held 90% of the market in Q4 2011. But the Note series accounted for less than 50% in Q2, as "low-cost local players ... have swooped in to offer big screens."
- Acer (ASIYF.PK) entered the phablet market in June with the Liquid S1, which sports a 5.7" display, an Android OS, and a Mediatek quad-core 1.5 GHz processor. Nokia (NOK) plans to launch its own 6" phablet in Sept.
- Although Asia is the front-runner in phablet adoption, Barclays sees global shipments climbing from 143M this year to 228M by 2015.

- U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman has quashed a decision by the International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban the U.S. sale of some older Apple products for violating a Samsung (SSNHY.OB) patent that enables devices to transmit multiple services at the same time via 3G.
- The ITC had wanted to bar the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS, the iPad 3G and the iPad 2 3G that were designed for use on networks operated by AT&T (T), T-Mobile (TMUS) and two regional operators. The prohibition was due to come into effect this week.
- In a letter, Froman said he overturned the ban because it gave Samsung "undue leverage" to delay rivals' use of a standard-setting technology, although he noted that the South Korean company can appeal in the courts.
