    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.
