LG Genesis is a Froyo filled clamshell coming to US Cellular
Granted that we still rarely find LG producing many QWERTY based Android smartphones, it seems like US Cellular is about ready to finally start selling yet another one in the form of the LG Genesis, which closely reminds us of the canceled LG enV Pro for Verizon.

LG now has the clamshell device on its web site showing that it’s bound for US Cellular, but there is no word yet on its pricing. Customers will especially like the fact the handset is sporting not one, but two WVGA touchscreens – the external one being 3.5”, while the internal one sizes up at a reasonable 3.2”. In addition, it also features things like a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-row QWERTY keyboard, 5-megapixel camera, 8GB microSD card, DLNA multimedia sharing, and powered by Android 2.2 Froyo.

For those who adore Verizon’s many LG enV style handsets in the past, they’ll particularly take a liking with the LG Genesis – even more when it employs that distinguishable form factor combined with the Android experience. Sure we’re interested in price, but we’re also eager to know when it’ll become available with US Cellular as well.

Yeah it was supposed to replace the popular Env Touch. Why that didn't happen I am not sure. But my only guess is either A) Verizon wasn't fond of the qwerty based design, much like the HTC Merge. Or B Motorola didn't want competition from the HTC Merge or the LG Genesis. *shrugs*
