Verizon is slowly beginning to solidify its spot as the provider of top Android handsets. Between the launch of the Motorola Droid and today's release of the Droid Incredible, Big Red is starting to resemble the preferred carrier for high-end smartphones. If the latest rumors prove to be true, next month will see yet another powerful offering from the nation's largest wireless provider.
It's being reported today that Verizon is readying the release of the LU2300 from handsetmaker LG. Known internationally as the Aloha, the U.S. version will be called the Ally and pack some heft. Specs include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.5-inch AMOLED 800x480-pixel touch-screen display, and a 5-megapixel camera. The four-row QWERTY slider phone will run Android 2.1 and have 720p HD-video-recording capability.
Not only will this mark the first Android phone from LG to arrive here in the United States, but it will also be the first handset to sport both a Snapdragon processor and physical keyboard. Based off of recent AdMob figures, users tend to prefer this design, so the LG Ally's got that going for it as well. Thoughts?
