Is this the LG Maxx Q, LG Gelato Q or both? We put on our detective hats

Something I’ve always loved about closely following the Android world is that I get to play detective from time to time. Today’s suspect is the odd LG phone you see above, brought to us via Pocket-Lint. As you can see, the phone has a display right in the middle of the keyboard. It looks like this screen will allow users to switch between different apps, but we’ve yet to see if that’s all it can do.

The phone is supposed to land on T-Mobile here in the states. Aside from that, we don’t have any concrete details on it. We do, however, have a lot of clues, a search engine and a great desire to figure out this phone.

Our investigation starts with the massive T-Mobile roadmap leak we covered last month. W know of three LG phones coming to T-Mobile in the near future: the LG Maxx, the LG Maxx Q and the LG “Gelato” Optimus II. Since the “Q” at the end of these names usually stands for “QWERTY,” we can assume the LG Maxx Q will probably have one. It is suspect number one.

But wait! There’s more. According to a rumor from last week, Sprint has an LG phone coming soon named LG Optimus Slider. The device’s code name is LG LS700/Gelato Q. This could mean one of the following. One:  LG has four different Android phones in the works that include the LG Maxx, LG Maxx Q, LG Gelato and LG Gelato Q. Two:  The LG Maxx/Maxx Q are simply T-Mobile’s versions of the LG Gelato/Gelato Q.

If this phone does turn out to be the LG Gelato Q, then we already know a bunch of stuff about it. According to its WURFL XML file, the phone will launch with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, a 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (either the MSM7630 or the MSM7230) and a 480×320 pixels resolution screen. Those specs make the phone a pretty good contender in the low-end section of the market.

What do you guys think? Is this the LG Maxx Q, LG Gelato Q, both or neither? Let us know in the comments.
