LG Optimus Slider aka Gelato shows up in Sprint database with September 11 release date

LG Optimus Slider aka Gelato shows up in Sprint database with September 11 release date
Until recently, there wasn't much known about the LG Gelato, yet rumors are now slowly starting to emerge. Thanks to several leaked screenshots of Sprint's internal database, we now have a reason to believe that the smartphone may be known as the LG Optimus Slider when it launches later this year. Another spicy detail that the leak suggests is that the Optimus Slider is allegedly scheduled to land on Sprint's shelves on September 11, but being three months in the future does not make the presumed launch date very plausible.

Judging by its name, the LG Optimus Slider is extremely likely to come with a slide-out keyboard of some kind. Another hint in favor of the assumption is that the smartphone is probably meant to replace the LG Remarq – one of Sprint's feature phones that launched about a year ago bearing a vertical slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately, there seem to be no clues regarding the Optimus Slider's hardware specs at this time so we will just have to wait and see.
