Red Bend Software, a mobile software management (MSM) vendor, says that LG Electronics is using its Red Bend Mobile firmware over-the-air (FOTA) updating software and vDirect Mobile device management software for the new Optimus G smartphone.
Since its launch, the Optimus G has received positive reviews from domestic and overseas consumers and industry insiders. Developed under the collaboration with many LG affiliates, the Optimus G is mounted with Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro. Its features include LTE support, a 4.7-inch, 1280x768 True HD IPS Plus display, 2GB RAM, 32GB built-in storage, 13-megapixel autofocus camera and a 2100mAh battery.
A Red Bend customer since 2005, LG has partnered with the vendor to make its mobile devices continuously better by providing convenient over-the-air software updates. Currently, more than 100 LG mobile phone models are Red Bend-enabled.
Adopted by more than 80 mobile operators and device manufacturers, Red Bend’s vRapid Mobile is the cornerstone software in more than 1.6 billion mobile phones and connected devices used to provide new features, applications and operating system updates. vRapid Mobile is the most trusted FOTA solution because it ensures 100 percent completion of software updates, even if there is a loss of power or network connection.
