LG DoublePlay released by T-Mobile
T-Mobile might not be offering the iPhone 4S, but that does not mean the cellular company has nothing interesting for the masses. Here is a smartphone that might just tickle your fancy, especially when you figured out some time ago that having just one touchscreen display is not good enough for you. After all, you are a corporate high flyer, and you were born with “multi-tasking” as your middle name. If only someone came up with a smartphone which had dual displays, you thought to yourself.
I guess sometimes thoughts do translate themselves into reality, where most of the time that happens because of the thinker. This time around, it is LG who will receive the plaudits for rolling out the world’s first smartphone that will feature dual capacitive touchscreen displays, delivering true multitasking capability in the process. T-Mobile would be the carrier of choice here, so if you’re going to rock to what LG deems as “the ultimate multitasking handset”, then you might want to check out just what kind of data plans they’re offering.
This T-Mobile exclusive will boast a split QWERTY keyboard just in case you have yet to get used to a virtual keyboard, and for those who have already ditched a physical keyboard, stop that groan right there. The LG DoublePlay has folks like you in mind with Swype and their virtual keyboard, letting you enjoy the best of both worlds. Good thing a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is thrown into the mix, so that you can multi-task with ease.
Imagine checking your email in the primary 3.5″ display, while the 2″ sub-display will be used to fire up your Facebook account, allowing you to operate two displays independently or in tandem, now how about that? This is certainly something that has not been done before, and it would be cooler if the processor had two cores, so that it can split the tasks of each display to individual cores.
Other hardware specifications include a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and the ability to shoot 720p HD video, multiple messaging options, Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the operating system of choice, and being able to customize up to 7 home screens. Anyone interested?
