Verizon has nabbed the rights to LG's very first Android phone, the Ally, which is available in retail stores across the country as of today.
The Ally has a 3.2-inch touch screen with tactile feedback, and a full slide-out Qwerty keyboard. There's a 3.2-megapixel camera and up to 16 GB of storage possible with the microSD card slot.

So that's what makes it an Android phone. Some of the unique features include five different customizable home screens, allowing users to go beyond the standard, basic Android interface.

And it supposedly has a "proximity sensor" to lock the touch-screen while talking on the phone. That's one of my main gripes about the Droid - accidentally pushing touch-screen buttons while I have the phone up to my face for talking to someone.

The Ally is available for around $100, after a $100 mail-in rebate for new or renewed 2-year contracts with Verizon. Customers must also sign up for a monthly talk and data plan, starting at around $70 combined, to activate the device.

This leaves Nokia as the only major phone manufacturer that hasn't offered an Android device. That's because it only uses its own proprietary operating system, Symbian.
