LG is slowly revealing the details on the LG Ally, a smartphone running Google's Android OS that will hit the market later this month. The company's micro-site dedicated to this model has been updated with additional details and images.
LG has officially announced that the LG Ally will be introduced on May 20. However, the company still has not yet revealed all the specifications for this this Android OS smartphone -- not even which wireless carrier will be offering it.

Several unconfirmed reports have indicated that Verizon Wireless is going to release the LG Fathom later this month, but a complete picture is just now emerging of this upcoming smartphone with Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 and a sliding keyboard.

Although the first models running Windows Phone 7 won't be on the market until the end of this year, Microsoft has already begun to show off a few of the devices that will run its next smartphone operating system.
