LG Revolution

And now Verizon's May 26th Android trifecta is complete. The carrier just announced that the LG Revolution will be going on sale tomorrow, May 26th, for $249.99 with a two-year contract. For your hard-earned cash, you'll be getting a 4.3-inch 480x800 touchscreen, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p HD video capture, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB microSD card preinstalled, 1500mAh battery, HDMI out, Mobile Hotspot capability with support for up to eight devices over 4G LTE or five devices over 3G, and Android 2.2.

As with most new Android phones as of late, it's kind of disappointing that the Revolution comes with Froyo out of the box rather than Gingerbread, especially since customers are shelling out $250 on-contract for it. Still, you have to imagine that LG and Verizon will get Android 2.3 to it at some point, so at least there's that. So, who's going to pull the trigger?
