It's not often that a carrier and manufacturer team up to beat an estimated launch date, so color us stoked to see Verizon start to push the official Froyo update for LG's Ally starting this week -- a little earlier than the February guidance they'd given before. Of course, the phone had originally

Ah, the brutally fast, unrelenting pace of Android: sure is tough for manufacturers to keep their products -- some of which are just weeks old -- looking fresh when they're one or two major OS versions behind, isn't it? LG promised all the way back in August that owners of its QWERTY Ally for Verizo

Maybe it was the heat crosstown rival Samsung was bringing with its Froyo promises for the Galaxy S series, but whatever the case, we're pleased to see that LG has stepped up to commit an Android 2.2 upgrade for Verizon's Ally. Unfortunately, they're not offering up a date -- or even a multi-week wi

LG didn't hold back when it came time to market its Ally, but was a tie-in with one of the summer's biggest blockbusters really enough? We found some rather unforgivable flaws during our testing, but that's honestly beside the point -- we're here to hear about your thoughts on the device. Priced in

You remember those Android 2.1-powered LG Allys that were supposed to go on sale with Big Red earlier this week? Yeah, well, they didn't, and Verizon's site is still showing them as pre-orders. We're not sure what's going on there, but pre-orders are being extended through the 26th with sales commen

You know, not every smartphone has to be putting down maxed-out hardware. That's a lesson that Nokia is certainly taking to heart, concentrating many of its latest efforts on lower-end Symbian devices that it hopes will capture entire new swaths of users that'd otherwise be buying dumbphones with h

We'll admit it, we really can't find anything straight-out \"wrong\" with the LG Ally. Maybe we could muster up a few matters of taste to gripe about, but it really does seem to be a pretty solid QWERTY Android slider. But unfortunately for LG, Verizon, and the good people at Stark Industries, we're

We should know a whole lot more about this situation at an Iron Man 2-themed LG event taking place later today, but BGR appears to have scored full details on LG's upcoming Android-equipped Ally for Verizon along with a couple key dates. Most importantly, it sounds like the landscape QWERTY slider

LG's Ally recently got its stamp of approval from LG, but outside of a terse acknowledgment that the phone was real (and had a thing for iron-clad superheroes), little else was divulged. Today, we've stumbled upon the phone's dedicated product page over at the company's website, which not only plug

Well, this hasn't exactly followed the usual smartphone launch route, but LG has now officially confirmed the existence of its new Android-powered LG Ally handset, although it's still not doing much talking about the phone itself. It has, however, revealed that the phone will be available on May 20

Well, LG's Moorestown-based, Moblin-running GW990 may sadly be no more, but it looks like the company will be bringing another fairly impressive-looking handset to US shores: the Android-based LG Ally. According to Android Central, it will be landing on Verizon around the middle of May and, if it l
