LG’s new QWERTY Android slider, once dubbed the “LG Gelato” is set to come to a handful of American carriers as the LG Enlighten. According to pocketnow, the LG Enlighten will come to Sprint, US Cellular, Cellular South and Verizon.
The LG Enlighten features a 3.2 HVGA display, 3.2 megapixel camera, and an 800mhz processor. 150mb of internal memory with a 2gb microsSD card in the box, of course the microSD slot can handle up to 32gb. It also features a full QWERTY keyboard.
Even though this is by no stretch a superphone, LG did very well with an entry to mid-range Android device last year when they released the original Optimus 1 to multiple carriers. Pocketnow is also reporting that there is a keyboard-less version of the LG Enlighten known as the Net P960 that would be more of an LG Optimus-1 Part deux.
The LG Enlighten is expected to start around $100 on a new two year agreement with most of the carriers. It’s also expected to be released as early as this Thursday.
