You say you want an LG Revolution? Leaked photo suggests May 26th launch
As we reported earlier today, Verizon has announced a May 26th launch for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY. We have also told you that there is speculation that the carrier plans on launching the Motorola DROID X2 in stores on May 26th. But Big Red might be cranking out at least one more phone on that date. A leaked photo of inventory information for Best Buy suggests that the big box retailer will have its supply of the LG Revolution on May 25th.

Unlike the DROID X2 and the Xperia PLAY, the LG Revolution is LTE enabled and you will be watching data fly at 4G speeds on a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 480 X 800 pixels. Under the hood is a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The unit has a 5MP shooter on the back that captures video at 720p, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera for self-portraits and video chat. Despite having a name like "Revolution", the phone is loaded with Android 2.2. It would have shaken things up more had LG and Verizon decided to install Gingerbread on the model. While no subsidized pricing information has been revealed, a picture of a Best Buy display shows that the retailer will ask $700 for the phone off contract.

While so far only the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY has been confirmed for a May 26th launch by Verizon, where there is smoke there is fire and everything seems to point to a hat trick of new devices coming to Big Red a week from Thursday, including the carrier's third 4G enabled device-the LG Revolution.
