LG Genesis on US Cellular

What's this? A clamshell Android device? that's right, folks, it's the LG Genesis, apparently destined for US Cellular. If it looks familiar, it's the old enV Pro that once was destined for Verizon but, like the HTC Merge, never saw the light of day.

But it's back, and it's kept that dual-screen form factor we've traditionally seen on feature phones. Here are the specs as we know them: (Update: No, make that the full specs)

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 3.5-inch external touchscreen at 480x800
  • 3.2-inch internal touchscreen at 480x800
  • Five-row QWERTY keyboard
  • 5MP camera, max video resolution 640x480
  • 430MB of internal memory
  • 8GB microSD card
  • DLNA multimedia sharing
  • Size: 4.72 inches x 2.43x0.66
  • battery: 1500 mAh
  • Weight: 6 ounces

No word yet on pricing or availability, but we're more than a little curious to get our hands on the Genesis, especially with other dual-screen phones like the Kyocera Echo already on the streets. We've got one more pic after the break.

Thanks, anon!
