LG enV Touch 2 to be Android powered smartphone?
The LG enV Touch is a popular Verizon featurephone that is about to become a smartphone for its sequel. The enV Touch 2 will be powered by Android when the new iteration of the phone is launched, most likely later this year. With dual screens-including a touchscreen display on the outside-and a QWERTY keyboard inside, the handset was originally called the Voyager when first launched in 2007, and was Verizon's challenge to the iPhone at the time. When headset manufacturer Plantronics refused to allow Big Red to continue using the Voyager name for a sequel last year, the enV Touch was born.

While protoypes of the phone have been currently running Android 2.1, there is a chance that the model could be sporting Android 2.2 by launch. We would expect the enV Touch 2 to be ready for the all important holiday shopping season, priced as a mid-range smartphone. T-Mobile attempted the same mad scientist act earlier this year, turning the Samsung Behold from a feature phone to an Android device called the Behold II. In terms of sales, that operation was a failure.
