LG Etna Android Phone Spotted at IFA

LG has been relatively quiet on the Android front, especially when compared to the likes of HTC, Motorola, and Samsung. Sure we've heard some reports that LG would eventually make Android phones this year but there hasn't been anything substantial until now: Meet the LG Etna Android phone. The LG Etna was spotted at the IFA trade show in Germany and it quite obviously runs Android (albeit the basic version, no custom UI here).

The LG Etna rocks a 3 inch touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera, and full QWERTY keyboard. We're glad to see the use of a physical keyboard because fewer and fewer Android devices offer that crucial input option. We know LG had plans to release 3 Android phones this year, could the Etna be its first? And does it sound similar to the previously planned LG GW620 Eve?
