Seeing as EE is about to unleash 4G on these shores in the guise of 4GEE, the Optimus G will hopefully keep its LTE skills here in Blighty. That would make it the LG Optimus G 4G LTE on 4GEE, which is a mouthful. HTC is holding an event the same day to lift the lid on its first Windows Phone 8 handset. And the iPhone 5 will be on sale on Friday. Quite a week. What do you reckon of the Optimus G? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook.

Acer was set to announce a new mobile running the Aliyun OS -- a heavily modified version of Android. But Google cried foul, and said it would stop supporting Acer if it went ahead. In other words, Acer wouldn't be able to make Android smarties. So what reason does Rubin give for the ultimatum? Compatibility is the issue, apparently. Aliyun (made by Chinese company Alibaba) isn't compatible with Android apps, according to Google's tests. As a member of the Open Handset Alliance, Acer has an obligation to stay compatible or it'll be cut off. Google made this clear, and Acer cancelled Thursday's press conference where it would have announced its Aliyun-powered handset.
