LG has announced their first Android smartphone, the ‘Ally’ in a rather unorthodox way. Most companies announce their phones in a conference sort of way with plenty of press on hand and cameras at every square-inch.
LG took a different approach with this announcement instead touting its tie-in with the Iron Man 2 movie set for release this Friday. The phone even has its own web site dedicated to the movie connection. The LG Ally releases May 20th, and will come with a special edition Iron Man 2 comic book upon launch.
The features of the Ally include a QWERTY keyboard, an Iron Man 2 augmented reality app and a full touch screen. The detailed specifications have yet to be released, but there is rumor the processor will run at a full 1 Ghz.
Looking at pictures of the Ally, I can determine it at least runs the latest version of Android, 2.1 which is a good indicator that the phone will have some decent specs under the hood. If you’d like more mobile news from just about anywhere, make sure to follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
