LG Doubleplay first press shots surface
The LG Doubleplay is pretty unique in the way it handles the physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Separated by a screen right in the middle, it reminded us of the Nokia E70, one of the first QWERTY devices that caught our eye back in the day. We’ve seen the Doubleplay before - it appeared as the LG Flip II back in June, but now we have the official press shots. Combine this with a leaked T-Mobile roadmap, saying that the device is coming on November 2nd, and you arrive at a pretty clear picture of what’s to come. Of course, nothing is sure until we hear an official confirmation from either the carrier or LG.
The LG Doubleplay itself comes with a dual-screen setup: the main screen being one sporting an HVGA (320 x 480 pixel) resolution and the secondary screen noticeably smaller. That secondary display allows you to quickly access some apps like messaging for example, but we’re short on further details. On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel camera equipped with LED flash. On the software side we have Android.
Overall, nothing groundbreaking in terms of pure silicon, but still it’s nice to see more experimental designs for phones and the Doubleplay is exactly that. It’s expected to come with a price tag of $150.
