LG DoublePlay Release Date Leaked For T-Mobile

It’s been about a week since T-Mobile and LG officially announced the DoublePlay, a unique take on the traditional QWERTY slider design achieved by adding a secondary display right in the middle of its keyboard. While an official release date for the phone remains elusive, a leaked screenshot shows that it should arrive on November 2.

From the looks of things, pre-orders will be taken online and over the phone, but there are no signs the DoublePlay will start shipping-out as early. We’re also still up-in-the-air as to the smartphone’s price; although its unusual design makes direct comparisons tricky, it seems reasonable to expect the DoublePlay to end up priced around $150, if not a little higher.

Even without the two-inch secondary screen, the DoublePlay sounds like a solid mid-range messaging phone. Its main screen is a 3.5-incher, there’s a 1GHz snapdragon under the hood, and a five-megapixels camera capable of 720p video recording lives around back. One word of advice: if you find normal QWERTY smartphone keyboards a bit cramped, you’d be wise to check out a DoublePlay in stores before ordering, if only to make sure that the addition of that secondary display doesn’t force individual keys to shrink too small for comfort.
