LG DoublePlay on sale at T-Mobile earlier than expected
While it may have originally been pegged for a November 2 release, the dual-screen packing LG DoublePlay is now on sale at T-Mobile for $99.99 with a new two-year contract or a qualified two year upgrade.

We were first introduced to the LG DoublePlay back in May and it was just two weeks ago that the first official press shots of the dual-screen smartphone surfaced. The DoublePlay is an Android 2.3 device and is powered by a single-core 1GHz processor. The main display of this smartphone measures in at 3.5-inches.

What makes the DoublePlay unique is what you see when you slide out the full QWERTY keyboard. In the middle of the keyboard is a 2-inch display that can operate separately or in tandem with the handsets main display. This will make multi-tasking a breeze giving users simultaneous access to email, text, social networks, the web browser and much more.

The DoublePlay also features a 5 megapixel camera that can record video in 720p HD. The camera also has some other goodies such as an LED flash, auto-focus and face detection. There is no front-facing camera present on this handset so don't expect to take easy self photos or video chat with it. The DoublePlay can also download at blazingly fast speeds thanks to T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network.

LG and T-Mobile have decided to make this device available immediately instead of the original November 2 release date. Why they pushed it up we don’t know. If you want to pick up a device that is truly unique then head on over to your local T-Mobile store. You can pick one up for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate with a two-year commitment. If you happen to check one out tell us what you think about it.
