LG Ally kicks off pre-orders on May 13 with a full launch expected on May 20?
Already being heavily featured on commercials promoting Iron Man 2 on television, additional news shed some light on the LG Ally's upcoming plans. BGR has obtained some documentation surrounding the Android powered LG Ally which includes the full specifications on the smartphone and also some of the included features expected to accompany it. Consumers won't have to wait too long as it's looking like it'll launch on May 20th through all of Verizon's sales channels, but for those who can't wait to get their hands on it, there are pre-orders that will be offered starting May 13th. Expected to challenge the Motorola DEVOUR on Big Red's lineup, the LG Ally features a 600MHz MSM7627 processor, 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM, 3.2” WVGA touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel auto-focus camera with flash, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, pre-installed 4GB microSD card, and the stock Android 2.1 experience. In addition, it'll sport LG's own unique set of widgets primarily focusing on the calendar, Weather & Time, and Social Networking. Verizon adds some of its own applications such as Visual Voicemail and V CAST Media Manager out of the box – which doesn't necessarily take away from the overall experience. For those who don't primarily utilize Gmail for storing their contacts, Verizon's own Backup Assistant application will soon be making its way over to the Android Market. Now that LG is about to unleash the Ally, it'll be interesting to see what kind of impressions it'll leave on potential owners.

You know, I'm not really impressed with this phone - there are so many other phones out there with android that have more impressive specs - maybe if this phone was at a lower price point than the other higher end phones, but I don't mind payin more for a phone if I'm going to be paying the same data plan monthly on this phone as well as another phone like the incredible

this phone is dissapointing. i got hands on with it yesterday and it seriously feels like using android on a voyager. slow navigation and the touch screen feels like something that vzw would have put out 2 yrs ago.

Yeah this phone even looks like the voyager. Only a slider version. Lg should stick with what they do best... Making mediocre phones with crappy touchscreens.

I would consider this if it had the layout of the voyager or env touch but I will not use a keyboard that has the letters tight next to the space bar. Seriously even the Motorola Droids is cramped, at least you don't have that problem. Low end specs, small screen, bad keyboard, and you'd still have to pay the same as with the droid and incredible

It better be free after rebate, or it's not even worth discussing.
