I may be speaking prematurely, but I think that the smartphone market is about as flooded with choices as it's ever likely to get. In the next couple of months we're looking at the release of the Nokia N97, the BlackBerry Storm 2, the Palm Pre, the iPhone 2009, and the HTC Magic. And now we can add the Verizon LG enV Touch to the line-up. It's hitting stores on June 5th.

The enV Touch is the sequel to the aging LG Voyager. It's got a 3 inch touchscreen, an internal QWERTY keyboard and-get this-an internal 3 inch display screen. When you need to call someone or browse the 'net you can just use the touchscreen. When it's time to text or type in a URL or write a note, you just flip the Touch open and type away.

Verizon's new smartphone certainly has a unique design. In addition to two screens, it also packs a 3.2 megapixel camera, a full HTML browser, EV-DO, a 3.5 mm headset jack, and microSDHC support. This whole impressive package will be available on June 5th for $219.99 (with a two-year contract) before you take into account the $70 rebate.

This new LG looks pretty sweet, but it's not going to kill the iPhone or the Pre. That's unfortunate for Verizon, because the $200+ price tag puts it directly in competition with the iPhone and the Pre. I don't doubt that the enV Touch will see some success among Verizon members, but I think it's coming out at the wrong time and the wrong price to have any shot at the big leagues.
