The LG Ally is an affordable, yet powerful Android 2.1 powered smartphone that works on Verizon Wireless' 3G network. At launch, it costs $99.99 with a two-year contract - half what the Motorola DROID costs. And like the DROID, it sports a speedy 600MHz processor, a wide-VGA resolution touchscreen, and a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard with a d-pad controller.
The DROID, however, has a more stable software build on it and offers a larger display and a bit more style. The Ally, though, offers fantastic call audio quality and does most everything pretty darn well.
The device is already fairly easy to recommend for those looking for a keyboard-equipped Android smartphone on Verizon, and a software update could improve its standing even more.
