LG Ally to Sell for $99 After Rebate

Verizon has just rolled out a press release detailing the LG Ally and all the wonderful things associated with it.  We knew pretty much everything but the price thanks to a leak yesterday.  Today we’ve learned that the LG Ally will retail for $99.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. Pre-orders are still a go for tomorrow with in-store availability on May 20th.

Key features of the LG Ally:

  • Ergonomic silver-and-black outer case
  • Large 3.2” tempered glass touch screen featuring touch vibration for tactile feedback
  • Full slide-out QWERTY keyboard with simultaneous touch screen capabilities
  • microSD slot for up to 16 GB of memory
  • Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n)
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Five customizable home screens
  • Luminous sensor designed to adjust LCD backlight brightness depending on light conditions
  • Proximity sensor instantly locks touch screen buttons while talking on the phone
  • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera and camcorder with flash

  • 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!

  • thanks a lot! nice post :p
