BoyGeniusReport has a story that the LG Aloha (AndroidCentral calls it the LG Ally in the US) will be heading off to Verizon in May. AndroidGuys commented that this would be the first time LG has released an Android phone in the US, and if this release is any sign of things to come, we may see LG gaining some serious fans.
AndroidCentral posted a photo of an LG device called the Ally, featuring a slideout keyboard (probably QWERTY), which apparently will be LG's first Android device and it appears to be running an Android OS. However, if you look closely at the photo of the phone in the picture below, you will notice that it looks significantly different than the picture above. Is this a picture from an old design or are we looking at two separate phones here and do other sites have the details mixed up?
- Android 2.1 OS
- 1GHz CPU
- 5MP camera with 720p vieo capture
- Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
- 480 x 800 pixel 3.5" AMOLED capacitative touchscreen
- 802.11n WiFi
Whatever this devices is called, it sure looks like a winner to me.
