May 27th means LG's Ally is now rocketing across the US, Iron Man stylee

LG Ally
As promised, LG’s mid-range, QWERTY, Android-powered slider (phew), the Ally, is now available from Verizon.

Just think: somewhere out there, keen LG/Iron Man 2/Android fans are braving the harsh Spring conditions, waiting for their favourite Verizon stores to open. The less adventurous of the devout would have just pre-ordered it, but where’s the honour in that?

You can grab the Ally for $99.99 after a not-at-all-annoying $100 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract from Verizon. Rocket boots not included.
