T-Mobile has just released the new LG DoublePlay, a new Android-powered smartphone featuring a split QWERTY keyboard and dual capacitive touch screens. The LG DoublePlay is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It also features a 3.5-inch main display and a 2.0-inch sub-display, 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recorder, CloudText, Group TExt, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
Coinciding with the release of the LG DoublePlay, LG is hosting the fifth annual LG U.S. National Texting Championship. Obviously, the LG DoublePlay will be used in the said competition. This should prove the DoublePlay’s capability as a portable texting machine.
More information about the LG U.S. Open National Texting Championship are as follow:
The fifth annual LG U.S. National Texting Championship will bring the fastest, most talented thumbs in America to the historic Altman Building in New York City to face-off for the chance to be named the winner of the 2011 LG U.S. National Texting Championship. Reigning champion Brianna Hendrickson, who took home the 2010 title at just 13 years old, is the contestant to beat.
This year’s competition will push contestants to dig deep and flex their texting muscles as they race through challenges designed to test texting speed, accuracy and dexterity.
Competitors will need to type phrases on their LG DoublePlay exactly as they appear on LG plasma screens, while distracted by blindfolds, complex phrases, and marathon gameplay.
