An exciting new Android powered device is making it’s way to US Cellular by way of LG. The LG Genesis is one of the few Android phones with two screens, and a physical QWERTY keyboard that exposes itself once the sites front-facing screen is flipped open.
The Genesis is now up on the LG Website but it hasn’t yet been announced by the US Cellular officials. We’re guessing this isn’t the way this phone was meant to be shown to the public for the first time, but everyone is convinced that US Cellular WILL BE the carrier that the phone ends up with. Here are some pictures of the phone…
We’re guessing the phone will show up on the US Cellular website by the end of the week. They were probably trying to coincide the actual release of the phone in the stores with the website release and a communication error cause LG’s early release.
The website does boast some pretty solid technical numbers according to LG’s site. The camera has Wi-fi, 3G coverage, 5 megapixel camera, and two 800×480 resolution screens. We’re still waiting to hear about the battery life from the 1500 mAH battery. The phone will run Android 2.2 Froyo, so we’ll be watching for a 2.3 update at some point.
Right now the expected cost is $249.99 with a renewed or new contract.
