We just reported on the LG Aloha and now we have some speculative pictures that point this South Korean LG LU2300 Android device (pictured above) as the actual Aloha. Remember, the Aloha is purported to be the next great Android device with one new wrinkle: it has a full QWERTY keyboard.

A QWERTY keyboard is found on the LU2300 along with a 800x480 screen and Android 2.1, both which are expected to be on the Aloha. The other 'new' specs of the LU2300--Snapdragon, AMOLED 3.5-inch screen, and optical trackpad--seem to fit in with the Aloha's "high end" nature, so if you connect the dots and take a leap of faith the LU2300 just might be the LG Aloha. We definitely wouldn't be mad if it was. What do you guys think? [via androidcommunity]

I would really love that phone.

I like the look of the keyboard. Not sure about that trackpad. I find that small trackpads like that are a little bad at precision. It looks a bit thick/brick-like. LG sure has a penchant for shiny deisgn elements. I think they like chrome more than Cadillac.

How often are you REALLY going to be using the trackpad on a full touchscreen device, though? I think we're going to be seeing more pointing devices like these and less trackball devices in the future, they are just less failure prone.

I understand, but when you use it...you want it to work. In my experience, I find that the circular trackpads (LG Chocolate) just don't work that well. The piece suggested optical, but it looks tactile to me.

That said, I've had good experiences with LG phones, generally, including sliders. As I said, the keyboard looks really nice. I'll be very interested to see the dimensions. As I said, it looks a little thick.

Now, if THAT came to VZW; I might give up my Droid - the keyboard looks great. So far, few of the devices i've seen impress me, as a physical keyboard is a must. And that one looks leagues above the Droid's, and even better than the Devour.

LG tend to give their best phones to Verizon so I'm pretty sure this is coming to VZW. Looks nice, like an Android version of the HTC touch pro a bit. It'll be interesting to see the progress on this one.

Why not just eliminate the key board. I never even slide my Droid out. Would b perfect size and weight with no keyboard.

I think the Motorola Sholes Table (maybe Droid Tablet if it comes here) is in the works. It's basically a Droid without the hard keyboard.

entwined82 says:

Because some people want the qwerty. The Droid is barely thicker than a touchscreen only phone with the keyboard included. No reason the Aloha can't be the same.

I like it, but a lack of Google Experience usually leads to disaster.

Is that a front facing speaker? If so.. it's about damn time.

And I thought the Droid was ugly and the Backflip was stupid way to raise the bar for awful designs LG

NickF227 says:

I like it, and obviously VZW is gonna get it...but, um, where's the back button and menu button, LG?
