First Look: LG Ally

1:22 /

Natali Del Conte takes a First Look at the LG Ally, LG's first Android phone, at an "Iron Man 2"-themed launch event in New York City.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET. This is Iron Man, and this is the LG Ally. Now LG is a sponsor of the new Iron Man 2 movie. I've seen the movie twice, and I actually didn't see this phone in the movie, but since LG is sponsoring the movie, they're also sponsoring an event to launch this phone. It comes out on May 20th, that's next week. This is LG's first attempt at an Android phone. It's running Android 2.1, so that's their Eclair version of Google's operating system. One thing it has that's new is this Iron Man Ally icon. What it does is provide Augmented Realty. Now the only thing it does now is scan in this picture of Iron Man and make him fly around in 3D, but they're saying that other Augmented uses will come out of this app in the future. Other than that, it's pretty standard phone. It's got a slide-up QWERTY keyboard here with a pretty spacious keyboard actually. It's kind of nice to type on. In the back is a 3.2 megapixel camera with a flash. The phone launches on May 20th, that's next week. They don't have pricing for us tonight, but we'll have that on CNET.com, so you can look that up when it becomes available. Again, I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET. This is the LG Ally and that's Iron Man. ^M00:01:18 [ Music ]
