Aficionados of strange form factors need not wait much longer for their next curiosity — LG's DoublePlay is coming soon. According to a leaked screenshot from a TmoNews tipster, the oddball dual-screened phone is set for an October 26th release for those looking to buy online and over the phone. If you're not as hungry for the T-Mobile messaging device you can pick one up in stores on November 2nd. The mid-range DoublePlay runs Android 2.3 and differentiates itself with a landscape slide-out keyboard that is split up by a 2-inch capacitive touchscreen.

Update: T-Mobile has confirmed that the DoublePlay is indeed shipping on October 26th.
