Alcatel OT-V770 and The Playboy phone
Out of all, the one that deserves our attention is probably the Playboy. The device has no Alcatel branding, but is based on the V770. It is a candy-bar with the Playboy logo and content (not porn) preloaded. When launched, matching accessories will be available for it as well.
As a device, it is nothing special – 1.3 mega pixel camera, stereo Bluetooth and memory expansion. Three different color variants will be available, and each one will have a different metal back plate with graphics.

I have read in several places that the unit's GPS will be unlocked and that the device will have VZ Navigator. Any ideas of the GPS will be locked to Navigator?

How come verizon never gets phones such as the lg shine and other cool phones...with metal bodies all we ever get are cheap crappy plastic bodied phones someone get to me on this ASAP YEAH BOY

metal phones can be heavy..plastic can be just as durable in most cases...are you asking verizon to cater to you personally?
They do have a metal body phone the same as the lg shine just flip not slide.
It would have been nice if the Glyde or VX9700 was on display.

VZW has the LG-VX8700. The LG Shine is a slide version of the 8700 and the Shine got released way AFTER the 8700.

I have this bluetooth headset and absolutely love it. It is extremely lightweight, very comfortable, and not to mention affordable at 79.99. It has noice reduction and it also has stereo bluetooth capability so you can listen to music and no one knows that you are. It fits in your ear in a new evolutionary way. The back peice holds the bluetooth headset in your ear, unlike other kinds that just fall off. It is by far the best headset I've owned (and I've owned a lot of 'em).

Verizon better start announcing cooler phones like the Glyde, Dare, VX8560, Decoy...etc. So far, the only phone that really matters that they hae announced is the enV2.

This article states the enV2 is not thinner than the original enV when in fact it is .14" thinner or roughly 18% thinner.

Do you find something horribly masculine in those weirdly large mouthed Alcatel models?
