Wow! Is all I have to say to you jp, the dare, voyager, and env(the whole series) has been trash those phones have been awful, they have so many problems, shit the env touch started at version 3 on the software and it is at 9 now and it still sucks, LG hasn't been good since the simple 8300 flip phone and this new "ally" is going to suck too. I will bet you that this phone has a random powering off issue guaranteed.

Christ, give it a chance once it drops. Then talk about it. Motorola has been sh*t for ten plus years, yet you all bandwagon jump it. I don't care about the Droid, it might have been well supervised in production by Google, but it still has hot trash Moto components on the inside. Don't even get me started on Sh*tsung. Too bad Nokia quit making quality CDMA phones. LG, by far, has had some of the best CDMA phones out over the years. Rumor, Voyager, Dare, Env3...quality devices. Whoever said the Devour is/will be better than the LG Android is plain smoking some sh*t. If anyone has a lock on the Android market, it's HTC. Get your sh*t straight.

corporateJP, First things first, you are not totally off the mark with saying that Motorola has not had the greatest track record when it comes to making phones (ie. Rival & Krazr). I'd love to "get you started" on Samsung however since they have actually been making solid CDMA phones for at least the past year, the only major failures I can think of was the Glyde which was their first attempt at a touchscreen. The Saga was the only other major flaw in their lineup and that was more in part to the device running an awful version of Windows Mobile platform. Their lineup for standard handsets has been amazing though and with the Omnia II, Samsung has the only desirable PDA running a Windows format at this time even in comparrison to the HTC lineup. As for your most egriously wrong windbag statements about "the best CMDA phones" I can't even imagine you would type something so absolutely unfounded and incorrect without what I could only guess to be a sad excuse for humor. LG USED TO make solid devices, back during the 8000 series and is probably the last time their phones held any merit against the rest of the field. More recently their phones have been launched with such catastrophic failure matched only by those in sweat shops in some third world country still cranking out Kyoceras prepay devices to be used and thrown away before the device inevitably fails you while on holiday in the backcountry of Peru. If by some chance the cellphone gods actually smiled upon you and provided you with a semi-functioning version of one of LG's many collasal blunders, Decoy, Dare, EnV2 or 3, Touch, my hand cramped up there as I was attempting to compile my list of LG's failures. The numerous software updates and supposed "fixes" to glitches in their touchscreen phones alone has made it quite possibly the worst phone to have at your side. If LG would put aside it's desire to have devices with such imagniative products as an onboard bluetooth headset or a mini-projector, which end up as functional as a third nipple! Sure it sounds cool at first and people want to see it, but as soon they realize it doesn't do anything useful and no one really needs one the appeal wears off. Try and check your facts next time and actually speak to a user of ANY current LG phone not just users of CDMA and maybe you'll get some insight into a phone company riding the same train as Palm on their way out the door thanks to their own equipment failures and inablitly to write programming that actually works. Get your sh*t straight you silly prat!

lol that was a lot of fluff for someone who thinks they know what they are talking about. LG is one of the most popular and sought after phone manufacturer in the usa. i dont know one person who has not had lgs at one time or another. they are not going anywhere and to put them in the same class as palm is laughable. they need some help with the smartphone platform, but they are just now starting to put out some smartphones due to demand far as vzw is concernd people have been asking for an lg smartphone on the network for the past four years. I think its going to get a very good reception from fans of the brand and smartphone users alike. samsung is also a great manufacturer who has a huge following. just because a company has a few lemons in the bunch doesnt mean they are horrible products. the samsung rouge was a huge success as are a few other smartphones on other networks and the omnia and omnia two. for you to dish out all that non credible b.s. is obsurd. every os has its kinks and updates. its the way the industry works to compete the moto droid has had two already and its only been out for 6 months! even the i phone and incredible has had them. basically what you should have said was that you are not a fan of anything but cmda phones all together... so they are irrelivant to me. Dont bash what you dont like... just deal with whats out there and know that not one manufacturer has made a phone without issues..lg samsung and motorola have each had their time in the limelight...the question is what is the best phone for you..? obviously not a cdma lg or samsung!!!! lol you should go with an i phone you sound like a fanboy of an overrated phone on a crappy network. have a nice day

i have seen the phone and held a pre production model from an l g rep. lets just say i hope the touch screen is way better than what I used when it actually hits stores.. it was terrible... overall form factor of the phone was great.. sortof a smartphone in an lg env touches body... it will do well

Man i wish it goes to Sprint as well i need a qwerty key board android beast and the Samsung moment 2 only seems like a scam to make original Samsung moment users to upgrade to the same phone but it has android 2.1 Yea we know Sprint is going to get the EVO 4G but some of us need a physical keyboard.
