LG Ally – First Android Phone from LG

LG has announced–sort of–the Ally, the company’s first Android-powered smartphone.
Rather than taking a more traditional route to unveiling a new cell phone, which would be staging a public event or dedicating a press release to the phone’s specifications, the company has alluded to the Ally’s existence in a company statement about an advertising tie-in to Iron Man 2, along with a movie-themed Web site for the device.

Customers buying an LG Ally on its release May 20, or an existing LG Chocolate Touch or LG enV Touch, will receive a special edition Iron Man 2 comic book created by Marvel.
The Ally itself? It features an Iron Man 2 “augmented reality app,” plus a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a full touch screen front panel. Still no official word on specs.
The last time LG did something like this was with the middling Incite, which the company tied to the middling remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.
