The LG DoublePlay has been leaked in the past, has its dummy units sent to stores, and officially announced last week, but we’ve yet to see a release date – until today. A leaked T-Mobile internal document has surfaced, detailing the LG DoublePlay and along with it – a definite release date. In case you haven’t been keeping up, the LG DoublePlay is one of the more interesting Android devices to come along recently.
It features a slide out half that includes a physical keyboard which is split in the middle by a 2″ capacitive touchscreen. This secondary touchscreen can be used to launch shortcuts to your favorite apps, which will help you multitask without having to return to the homescreen all the time (though I can’t help but wonder how much it will affect the phone’s 1,500mAh battery?).
Other specs of the phone include: a 3.5″ display, 1GHz processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, HSPA+ connectivity, a 5-megapixel rear camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. No word on pricing, but expect it to cost like a mid-range phone when it goes on sale on November 2nd.
