A long time ago, in a T-Mobile roadmap far far away, there lived a phone codenamed the LG Gelato. And here it is again, this time on a Sprint inventory sheet leaked to our sister site, CrackBerry. Dubbed the LG Optimus Slider -- which pretty much guarantees a horizontal sliding keyboard, right? -- it appears poised to be peddled in a pair of paint jobs -- midnight blue and purple.
Now LG has done a completely underrated job of dominating the market with its Optimus One line, getting the mid-level phone onto every major carrier in the U.S., as well as most of the regionals, too. That's no small feat. Is it about to do the same with sliders? If the Optimus Slider is at least in the ballpark with the Optimus One, you could certainly do worse.
