Mid-range LG Ally launches on Verizon May 20th

Boy Genius Report has uncovered the missing pieces of the LG Ally for Verizon. New leaked documents provide the full specs of the device and the official launch schedule. As we speculated, the LG Ally is a mid-range phone with Android 2.1, a 600 MHz ARM11 processor, 3.2 inch display, and full QWERTY keyboard. Pre-orders will begin May 13th and the Ally is slated to launch on May 20th in all channels.

No price point was announced, but we expect Verizon will launch this device around $149 with 2-yr contract. That is the same price as the Verizon Devour which features nearly identical specs. Speaking of the Devour, it looks like the LG Ally will be the better purchase since it runs the latest Android 2.1, has a higher resolution display, and includes a better camera with autofocus and flash.

Full specs after the jump.

    Agreed. A phone with a large Screen, 3.7″ – 4.3″, fast processor, Sense UI, android 2.1 (preferably android 2.2) and a physical keyboard would be awesome. There are two types of power users, ones that like a physical keyboard and ones that are fine without it. We have plenty of power touchscreen phones with out a physical keyboard. Can’t we get a power phone with a slideout qwerty keypad? Are you listening HTC, Google, anyone other manufacture who wants to make money?
