[img right []:"The HTC Merge is now available at U.S. Cellular" /]U.S. Cellular also announced that it will be offering the LG Genesis on June 9th. Some might find that the Genesis resembles the LG Voyager with the clamshell form factor that opens up to reveal a second display and a physical QWERTY keyboard. The device offers up a 3.5 inch external screen and a 3.2 inch internal display, both with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Unlike the Voyager, both screens on the LG Genesis are touchscreens. Android 2.2 is installed and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor powers the show. On back is a 5MP camera and 32GB of storage is aboard with an 8GB microSD card pre-installed. For those who like to use Swype, you will be happy to know that the swipe to type application comes with the unit right out of the box. The price tag for the LG Genesis will be $149.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and a 2-year contract.
