LG Revolution launch date

The Samsung DROID Charge may have just officially re-launched this past weekend, but it looks like Verizon won't be waiting long to push its third LTE-enabled smartphone out the door. According to a leaked document that originated over at Droid-Life, the LG Revolution, complete with a new black backside, will be joining the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY and quite possibly the Motorola DROID X2 in Verizon's lineup beginning May 26th. If you need a spec refresher, the Revolution features a 4.3-inch 800x480 display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a 16GB microSD card preinstalled, Netflix preloaded onto the device, and Android 2.2 running beneath a custom, Bing-ed out LG UI.

There's no mention of pricing on any of the docs posted today, although a previous leak showed that the Revolution has a minimum advertised price of $249.99. That price makes sense considering it's what Verizon is currently charging for the ThunderBolt, so I wouldn't be shocked if Big Red ends up slapping the Revolution with a $250 on-contract price whenever it's officially announced. So, now that most of the details on the Revolution have leaked out, are any of you planning on making this your Verizon LTE smartphone of choice?

UPDATE: For those of you that are interested in the Revolution and have some free time tonight, you can now download the device's user guide in its full 482 page glory, half of which is in Spanish. Maybe we can get Aaron to really show off his Spanish skills and read it on video? One can hope. The download link is right here.
