Honestly, Android has grown so large that we're a little past the point of purely speculating what the next great Android phone will be. There's so many awesome Android devices currently available, on the horizon, or in the future that it's almost silly to report on an Android phone that has no leaked pictures or confirmed specs. But this one's special: the LG C710 Aloha is purported to be as good as the best Android phones now with one twist: it has a full QWERTY keyboard.

The LG C710 is said to rock a 800x480 screen (same as the EVO) and pack your typical connectivity options but adds 802.11n. LG has previously built low-end Android devices but if this Aloha device is real, well, welcome to the big boys club LG. Combining that screen with wireless-n and a full QWERTY keyboard? Even if it's ugly, that's still an awesome phone. We can't wait to say hello. [tweakers]

LG C710 Aloha is the next great Android phone


please tell me this has a snapdragon chip, been waiting patiently for a handset w/ a qwertyand snapdragon from htc but no dice. anyother leaked specs??

Up until I graduated to smartphones, every phone I had except one was an LG phone. It started for me with the VX4400. I REALLY loved my VX8700(basically the same size as a Razor, with a much better keypad and nice brushed aluminum) My enV2 was a dream to text on, just to name a few. If there is one company I'd believe could be able to pry me away from my Nexus One, it would be LG. I request a landscape slider with brushed aluminum. PLEASE!!!

This is a great news.

Business users generally like keyboards. Productivity applications are typically more usable on keyboard-ful phones.

Currently Droid is pretty much the only game in town, which is a shame. An up-to-date high-end keyboard-ful phone will complement the Android landscape quite nicely.

you need to check your sources because the samsung moment is also a great phone and guess what it has a physical keyboard

it has the same res as the evo but you know none of it's other specs and you're calling it the "next great android phone" wow you like to call them early and uninformed

Currently LG has made the specs available for the European version, the American version will be 4G WIMAX. For at least the next year, Sprint is the only American carrier capable of launching a 4G device, the Aloha is 4G.
