May 26 is shaping up to be a hectic day over at Verizon, as the carrier has seemingly planned a device-launch hat trick for a week from Thursday. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is already confirmed for a May 26 release, and current rumors suggest that the Motorola Droid X2 will hit shelves that day, too. Now, a leaked photo of Best Buy inventory information suggests that the retailer will receive its LG Revolution supply on May 25.

Though all three smartphones will share a birthday, the LG Revolution pretty much stands alone among the three devices, as it is the only 4G LTE-enabled device that will enjoy this Spring launch from Verizon. In terms of specs, the Revolution sports a 4.3-inch touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixels of resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel rear camera that records in 720p.

The only real drawback to the phone is the fact that it runs Android 2.2 Froyo, instead of the much more desirable Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform. No official pricing info has made its way off the classified list, but a leaked photo of a Best Buy display reveals that the big box retailer will be charging $700 for the LG Revolution without a contract.
