If you’ve been following all the leaked roadmaps and predictions of future smartphones we’ve looked at, you’ll probably recognize the name LG Gelato. It’s been showing up for a few months now, along with the QWERTY slider Gelato Q. While we had heard the Gelato called the Optimus II before, its only now that we’ve come across information that paints the Gelato as the Optimus Net P690.
This revelation comes to us from the Net’s DLNA certification, which finally ties the Gelato name to the model number P690, already known to us to be the Optimus Net. Even without this connection, it makes perfect sense that the Net is the Gelato; after all, it’s supposed to be the sequel to last year’s Optimus One.
Now we’re just left to wonder what the Gelato Q will arrive as. We’ve seen CDMA models of it referred to as the LS700 and VS700. In fact, we just got our first look at a render of the LS700 a week ago. The phone could end up as the concisely-named LG Q that we’ve seen mentioned. Of course, if these phones are anything like the original Optimus One, we’re looking forward to a whole bunch of different names as the phones find homes on every carrier under the sun.
