AT&T to soon offer entry-level LG Escape?

AT&T looks like it will soon carry another Android 4.0 experience with low-tier hardware.

Will the LG Escape be another low-cost Android 4.0 experience out of AT&T? Twitter user @evleaks

AT&T is preparing to offer an " entry-level " Android 4.0 experience in the form of the LG Escape, according to recent internet chatter.

Also possibly known as model number of P870, the LG smartphone will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich and feature a 4.3-inch (960x540-pixel) display, a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The device is expected to carry a 2,150mAh battery and 1GB RAM.

Additional details for the unofficial phone include NFC and support for AT&T's 4G LTE network.

A press-ready image for the LG Escape made its way onto the Internet over the weekend, just days after the first rumors started up. Considering we're already talking about high-quality photos, it stands to reason that we may soon hear official word from AT&T. Based on the known details, I could not imagine the carrier asking for more than $99 for the Escape, with a two-year service agreement.
