LG EnactLeaked just a day ago, Verizon has today launched the LG Enact, which we're pretty sure is the first Android-powered QWERTY slider to land on a major U.S. carrier this year. The Enact is a budget handset, selling for $20 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) on a two-year contract or $349.99 outright.

That'll get you a device with a 4-inch WVGA (800x480) display, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU at 1.2GHz, 8GB of internal storage and microSD expandability. There's also a 5-megapixel rear camera. The software suite is powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, on top of which sits LG's own custom interface.

So it's not the most advanced handset, but it looks like something that'll handle the smartphone basics without too much trouble. Anyone still in the market for a QWERTY slider? Check the source link for more details.

This phone - NO!

Agreed! My wife wants a physical Keyboard, but I would never let her waste valuable $$ on this.

+1! I miss my Epic 4g, how hard could it be to make a high end qwerty...

Exactly! Just yesterday I was bemoaning the death of the physical qwerty keyboard to my roommate, who agreed with me that her favorite old phone was a qwerty slider...a higher end gsm qwerty phone would be awesome.
