First Press Shots of that Dual Screen LG Phone – Named the DoublePlay for T-Mobile

A while back, a photo of an LG device with a secondary device popped up. It was unique, revealing a separated keyboard with a small display beneath the top sliding portion of the phone. PocketNow has received official press shots of the device, though, and it revealed its name – the DoublePlay.

The display beneath the primary 320×480 display will likely be used as a secondary apps try for your favorite apps. I could see LG opening it up to developers to do more with, but the verdict is still out on all that. Rumors say this one’s coming November 2nd for $150.

    Ugly as sin. “Hey guys, let’s design a phone that looks like a horse pill and will be just as ard to swallow for the American consumer.”

    I’d buy something like this but with a reasonably powered processor over a pure touch device, but apparently adding a keyboard means gimping everything else on the device…

    I’ve never liked dual screens ever since that gameboy came out with it. That goes for the Sony tablet that looks like a vagina too

    i seriously cant even imagine why this was a good idea.correct me if i’m wrong,but didn’t Sprint have a dual screen phone? it actually looked descent,and still didn’t sell.LG phones just look cheap,this seriously looks like the toy phone that i might buy for the kid that i don’t even have.this isn’t 1999 anymore,you have to actually put effort into your phones now

    I bet this will sell big in Korea and Japan, they tend to like stuff like this…..or kids inbthe US will love it.

      Yup…they love stuff like this. I don’t know why LG brought it this way. They’ll be lucky if they sell 10 of these.

    Am i the only one that thinks the idea is cool at least. i mean its basically a quick launch set and would be a decent idea if you can switch them out. might sell well with teens.

  • OMFCody

    That is a terrable idea… I though my idea of having a whole touch screen as a keyboard slide out was bad but I didn’t think anyone would invest in something like this..
