LG Ally (Verizon) - $99, Pre-Order Now

 

 

Me, I'd rather have an Ally than a Moto Droid. Why? QWERTY. The hard QWERTY board on LG's first Android phone for Verizon generally delivers. I don't like the placement of the space bar in the bottom row of letter keys, but the action on the buttons is great. And that's a lot more than I can say about the action on Droid's keyboard. Otherwise, Ally is a solid mid-range Android 2.1 device. You won't get blazing fast performance, but you will get an entirely usable smartphone with a nice 3.2" display at an attractive price.
