Aaron takes a first look at the LG Genesis, US Cellular's newest Android phone and a device that looks a lot like the LG enV series of messaging phones. Don't let the looks fool you - it's quite the little QWERTY-powered Android, with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5-inch external display, 3.2-inch internal display, full QWERTY keyboard, 5-megapixel camera with flash, and Android 2.2 with some minor LG customizations. It's a welcome addition to US Cellular, and with a full QWERTY keyboard, could be the catalyst that pushes BlackBerry customers to the Android side.
