LG Android phone appears in Verizon’s system

We don’t know what to call it yet, but LG could finally offer an Android phone in the United States thanks to Verizon. Phone Arena has spotted a device in Verizon’s system labeled the LG VS740 and it is a Google-powered phone.

A lot of codenames and model numbers have been tossed around, but the LG VS740 could be the Snapdragon slider we saw earlier this month. Phone Arena claims the Wi-Fi certificate of the VS740 matches that of the LG Aloha (LG C710) and they believe it is also the same device as the LG Eclipse (LU2300) which is headed for Korea.

The LG VS740 has already been spied on the FCC’s site and the LG Eclipse was expected to hit Korea in May. If these devices turn out to be the same, the U.S.  could finally see a 1 GHz Android phone with full QWERTY keyboard this summer.

Any takers?

Will we finally get a Snapdragon slider?
