BlackBerry-style LG Android phone outed

An Optimus for pros, apparently

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Why does slapping a BlackBerry-style micro Qwerty keyboard make a smartphone professional? It doesn't, but vendors continue to pitch handsets that way, the latest being LG.

LG, of course, hasn't outed the phone, which has a stock smartphone wireless connectivity feature set, so there's no indication when it'll go on sale. AW says it'll cost €179 (£157) Sim-free whenever it does. ®
