Formerly codenamed the Flip II, the LG DoublePlay has shown off its secondary display in recent press renders that hinted a nearing release and, one week later, T-Mobile officially announces the phone.
The phone T-Mobile calls “the ultimate multitasking handset” sports a split QWERTY keyboard and dual capacitive touch screens. It packs a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3.5-inch main display and 2.0-inch sub display placed on the slide-out part, breaking the QWERTY keyboard in two, and a five-megapixel camera capable of 720p video recording. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread but not pricing or availability has been made public, though the official press release ties it to the fifth annual LG U.S. National Texting Championship which will start next Wednesday.
