    LG Ally is a welcome addition to Android family in a sense that it delivers diversity without the baggage of fragmentation.

    All the platform essentials such as the current version of Android and Google experience are in place. On the other hand there are minor differentiators that will make the phone attractive to several groups of users.

    Business users might find the keyboard layout more convenient than that on other phones.

    The price tag is not too bad. I'd expect all kinds of promotions both from Verizon and its resellers lowering the price all the way to zero. With that in place, it might become the choice of budget-cautious buyers.

    Good play by both LG and Verizon.

    Kind regards,

    Seems like a very good price – definitely can see people going for this especially if there is a lot of advertising! Some may argue it has come out at the wrong time with HTC Droid INcredible still doing well and a new iPhone and HTC Evo to be released in a few weeks but I think this is aimed to be slightly cheaper – bringing Android to the masses in the process!
