LG's Glimmer Phone Has Touchscreen + Keypad, Heading to Alltel

LG's previously leaked Glimmer phone does something interesting that we haven't seen much of before—combine a touchscreen with a slide-out keypad underneath. The 2.8-inch touchscreen lets you control the 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and AGPS (assisted GPS), but if you've got ham hands and feel like touch-dialing is a bit of a chore, you can slide out the keypad and call from there. It's an interesting compromise, and definitely an worthwhile phone if you're an Alltel subscriber. No price or availability dates yet. [Electronista]
