Looks like an interesting device, but if it was at an Orange event in London, then it'll probably go to T-Mo UK.

LG has made some weird gimmick phones from the past that never made it here in the US. No Surprise.
LG Crystal, with a transparent,almost crystal dial pad.
I think LG came out with a phone, with a detachable game pad or keyboard.

LG came out with a phone with a detachable keyboard. speaker attachment & game pad and it became available through Verizon Wireless as the Versa.

Ill admit. Ive been a LGFanboy since the orig. V. They build tuff phones. They're smart, tossing out interesting but not to far fetched ideas and seeing if they grab anyones attention. Side flip was an epic success. The screen along with the physical keys on the slide out could be the next. Maybe not with that exact styling, but i think they have something worth trying out on a couple more phones

I do miss my voyager at times but those were different days.
LG needs to focus on making high end phones instead of being like nintendo with all these gimmicky ones.

I can not say it enough times..........who chooses T-mobiles phones??? dammm... no wonder most people choose ATT...... this is a nasty model, who cares about the 2 screens, give us a break..... there are better models out there to consider.
hope they do not get this...........

I remember T-Mobile had gotten some pretty good looking phones:
HTC HD2 (HD7)
Samsung Vibrant (4G)
HTC Sensation 4G
I can go on about it.
Most people go to AT&T just for the iPhone. And most of the people are moving to Verizon.

adding a few missing ones.. :)
on and on...
oh yea, and Tmo doesnt add a lot of bloat to their phones, lock them down so they cant add non market apps or do any of the dirty s**t that ATT/VZW does. They also have unlimited data plans for half of what ATT charges for a paultry 4g plan that allows overages, charges less for tethering, has 42mb/s data unlike ATT's 12/mbs max..
And Tmo openly hugs Cyanogenmod and invites the team to events.
Tmo also has much better customer service, lower ETFs in some cases, and doesnt bold face lie to their customers.
i can hardly believe anyone would choose Tmo over ATT.. your right.. what was i thinking!?!? lol

this has got to be newer because you can see in the shots of the homescreen that it sports the updated 2.1 icons that of course carried over into 2.2 and the updated universal search widget that Froyo brought.
