LG U+ are a mobile and telecommunications subsidiary of one of Korea’s largest conglomerates and they’ve just announced free Wi-Fi for anyone living in South Korea.
If you do live there, you’ll just need to register for an ID with them and then you can connect to their “Free_U+zone” absolutely free. The catch? Well, it’s actually quite a small one considering the benefits of the service, you have to sit through a 15 second commercial every hour you use the service. It’s hardly a bad trade off when you get the other 3,600 seconds to browse the web for free.

The new iPad 3 was announced yesterday at the Apple keynote event with specs and release dates, along with software updates for iOS5 and apps.
Rather than give it a label, it is simply “the new iPad”. And the new iPad will have a mega quad-core processor, the A5X, as well as a fancy Retina Display, which will be brighter and much sharper than the predecessor.
This gives the new iPad a 2048×1536 resolution, and you can expect it to look absolutely stunning.
It looks like the launch of Kid Icarus:Uprising will be accompanied by a plastic stand so that you don’t have to hold your 3DS while you are playing it. While the controls of the new Kid Icarus might be frustrating or tiring to the hands Nintendo felt that they would give 3DS owners a break by letting them sit it down on a table, that is if you have a table while you are sitting on the bus playing your handheld system. The stand does not make much sense now but maybe it’s uses will be more apparent later on… Continue Reading

This week portable gaming has had more than the usual amount of news so we thought we would give you an update..
-Nekkei Trendy, a technology website for Japan, that the “Lite” model of the 3DS will be released in Japan during the first half of 2012 as many of you probably already predicted when they announced the 3DS in the first place. Hopefully this new model will have the Circle Pad Pro built into it.
– Also due to the low sales of the PS Vita shops in Japan (A little above 40,000 units, behind the 3DS, the PS3, the original PSP and even the Wii!) have been lowering their prices unofficially just to sell them from their stores, this has been happening more often with the 3G models than the regular models.
-A new Monster Hunter game has been rumored over in japan, this could be a spin off in the series or a port of the fourth title in the series which as it stands now is a 3DS exclusive.
-Capcom has confirmed that 3DS owners will be able to download the demo for Resident Evil Revelations later on this year.
-The 3DS has sold over 4 million units at this point in time, Nintendo states that this is more than the Wii sold in it’s first nine months. The regular Nintendo DS has sold over 10 Million.
