Default New LG rumored coming to USC

So... local US Cellular rep was telling my wife and I that they'll be getting a new LG Android powered phone "soon". Unfortunately, I can't find any info on it anywhere...

Anyone else heard similar? Anyone have anything concrete?

She likes her current LG (not an android), but it's starting to have problems. We can upgrade now, and she IS somewhat interested in going 'droid... but likes how LG lays out their product.

One thing she REALLY wants is a slide out keyboard. The Acclaim has one, but she didn't like the one I was using before i switched to the Desire. And switching services is NOT an option...

USCC is releasing 2 LG phones before the end of the year. One with a large screen and one that will have the slide out keyboard you want.

I know one is called the LG Optimus (I wish they called it Optimus Prime ha). I found these on google...


Here is the LG Ally (this is the phone that is rumored to be the second LG Android)


Am I 100% these are the phones? no. Am i very confident they are? yes.

Hope that helps.

Now to dig up more info. Thanks!

Ok... we looked over the Ally, and she's leery of it: bad reviews, and it sounds like it's an entry level (like the Acclaim).

So... next question: any rumors of USC getting the Desire Z? Or some other 'Droid with the slide out keyboard?

To my knowledge, no.

If she wants to stick with LG, I would also look at the LG Banter Touch. It is release in stores today. Its not an Android, but its a pretty sweet phone for those people who don't want to pay for the data service.

Or go with one of the LG Androids? decisions decisions
