It seems like just yesterday I was saying that touchscreen bar phones were all the buzz and that QWERTY sliders had become few and far between. Well, as usual, once you're willing to let words like that slip out of your mouth, you better be ready to eat them. AndroidandMe is now reporting that the phone once rumored to be the LG Aloha is now being called the Ally and might be making its way to Verizon this coming May.
The Ally's specs look to be a compilation of the reported features for the Aloha's various rumored model numbers (C710, LG VS740, LU2300). Strangely enough, when the LG VS740 popped up in Verizon's system two weeks ago as the third potential model number for the Aloha, we put a list together of the specs for all the devices just for fun. But now it appears we may not have been far off. Here are the rumored specs for the LG Ally:
If the rumors of the Ally coming to Verizon in May are accurate, Big Red will have a veritable monopoly on powerful Android smartphones. The crazy thing is that tomorrow is May, so I imagine VZW wouldn't launch the device until at least the end of the month, since there's no way they'd take all the attention away from the most sought after Android device to date (HTC DROID Incredible), not this early.
Any VZW QWERTY-slider takers? Sound off in the comments!
Update: As Phandroid pointed out earlier today, the LG Ally appears to have shown its face in an upcoming Iron Man 2 promotional video. Check out the YouTube video below!
