Verizon's system shows an LG Android phone and two Microsoft handsets
This article contains unofficial information.
However, the LG Aloha VS740 is not the only new device in Verizon's system that is of interest to us. It looks like there are also two Microsoft handsets, dubbed the MSONE and MSTWO, both seemingly manufactured by Sharp, which was the manufacturer of the Sidekicks. We see where this is going now, everything points at a Turtle and Pure announcement after a few hours. Stay tuned!
Thanks, anonymous tipster!
UPDATE: Coming across this Wi-Fi certificate, we realize this might be the LG Aloha (which was also leaked as the C710) with support for Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n. To make things even more confusing, we should say that there were rumors pointing the VS740 will acutally be Verizon's version of the LG LU2300 Android phone with 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, 5MP camera and 720p video playback, which will be available in South Korea, so it seems it may be one very beefed-up handset. Thanks to some inside sources, we also learned that the LG Aloha VS740 should be launched in Q2.

That's pretty cool. I hope the MS phones are worth it. This could be one big hit & miss, or one hit & win. Either way, I don't think it will really affect Verizon. If they don't like the phone, they will just trash it like Palm... :\

Palm trashed themselves....They were on the forefront of the PDA world, kept the same shell and layout for...10+ years? I had an m105 over 10 yrs ago, biggest difference between that and centro (except phone functions) was color on the screen.....if you don't change with the times, you're going to bury yourself...

theres 2 lg phones.... one is the vs740 one is the 750... one runs winmo 6.5.3 and the other android 2.1 . they are both capacitive screens and they both kinda suck to be honest.... the 2.1 multitouch is not good and the device form factor reminds me of an envtouch only capacitive. they both have a slide out keyboard as opposed to flip open and neither really shines...although the android set does have 5 home screens, 3d launcher, and live wallpaper (wtf moto??) running on pretty much the same specs processor and memorywise as the droid i'll pass on both of these, but good try LG

guess the rumor about the aloha coming to sprint was another lie sigh

Yeah and I guess the rumor about Sprint saving Palm was a rumor too. Stupid Palm if they would have sold to VZW first they'd be afloat....sprint tanked palm....nice job. And it seems like palm is blaming VZ for ad campaigning to much for Droid and not enough for Pre. Sorry palm you dug your own hole, should of sold to VZW NOT SPRINT with first exclusivity and your company would still be afloat.

webos is a good idea, but I can't get passed the fact that everytime I played with a pre it reset on me, after 10 mins of use, if they'd have sold to vzw first nothing would have changed.. They aren't innovative at all, the only cool thing about webos was the ability to flick away an app.. with is just a fancy task killer, blah i'm done now

seriously this is an article talking about 3 phones that are not palm or sprint so why do you have to open your mouth and say such things true exclusivity was a bad idea on palms part but we can read enough about that on a palm article we dont need it here!
