Highlighting the benefits of LG Nitro HD’s display, LG Mobile worked with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields to host the exclusive launch event at the New Museum. Tyler Shields helped bring LG Nitro HD’s display to life with a one-of-a-kind art exhibit.

LG Nitro HD multitasks seamlessly and with AT&T 4G LTE and HSPA+ where available, it easily browses even the most content-heavy websites and runs HD games with ease, including HD gaming from the Gameloft HD game store and Zynga Poker HD.
An 8 mega-pixel HD camera and 20 GB of total memory (4 GB on-board plus 16 GB of included microSD memory) allows users to capture and view crystal-clear True HD images and video.
