LG's forthcoming Ally mid-range mobile is landing in the US on May 27th - a week after it was initially supposed to launch.
The Ally was created in order to promote Iron Man 2 and although millions of pounds have been sunk into the blockbuster movie, LG's phone is a fairly unspectacular Android smartphone packing little of the techno wizardy that you might expect from a mobile tied in with a movie about robot suits and futuristic war machines.
Specs include a 3.2 megapixel camera, a 600MHz processor and version 2.1 of the Android operating system onboard.
Neither LG nor Verizon has given an explanation for the delay, although observers have been quick to speculate. It seems likely that a problem with the software or an issue with stocks of the phone might have caused the suspension of its launch.
Anyone who pre-ordered the Ally in the US on the Verizon network received an email earlier in the week explaining that the delay had been incurred.
