    LG has announced a new Android powered smart phone called the Ally that could be available as early as May 20th. The phone was spotted in a leaked Iron Man 2 themed commercial over the weekend. The claim to fame with the device will be the included Augmented Reality app that could push the limits of this type of technology. LG has not mentioned what wireless carrier the Ally will launch on but recent rumors suggest it will land on Verizon. According to Engadget, the phone will pack a 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the LU2300, along with a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen, a sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera, and Android 2.1.

    I saw that commercial on TV yesterday or the day before actually LOL

    So not really "leaked" but yeah I noticed right away that it was Android and they didn't mention a carrier.

    Lg makes great phones. I've never been disappointed with an lg phone. That being said, phone looks a bit too thick. The keyboard looks great though. I wonder if it will have a bunch of garbage addons, or if it will be a real google experience phone like the droid.

    I've also been happy with LG phones in the past. LG + full qwerty + android + vzw + snapdragon = sounds like win to me.

    Agreed on LG... Beside my Droid, my next favorite phone was an old LG.

    true, I have heard some negative things about those phones, but I had an enV2 and enV touch and those were both extremely well made phones

    Then again, though, the voyager and chocolate touch both had resistive touch screens, maybe this one will be capacitive.

    I've had:

    VX4400
    VX7000
    VX8300
    VX8500 (Chocolate)
    VX8550 (Chocolate 2)
    VX9700 (Dare)

    The Dare is the one that was advanced enough to make me like the idea of a smartphone and restrictive enough to make me REALLY want a smartphone. So went to 2 BBs and then the Droid.

    So yeah.. I've had a few LGs and I honestly liked them all.

    I've had quite the different experience. I can't tell you how many EnV's have taken a **** on me. Great keyboard, horrible phone.

    Before I got my Droid in February, I had used LG for all my phones the previous 6 years. Great phone company, but this one isn't exciting me. Looks great for those who want to go smartphone without ditching the feel of an ol' LG.
