LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 listed on the FCC site
With the Versa, enV Touch, enV3 and Glance all released this year, you might be wondering what LG has planed for 2nd half of '09. Enter the VX8575, known as the Chocolate Touch. We first started hearing about it a few weeks ago, as it is rumored to be based on the highly anticipated BL40. Then it appeared on the internal BestBuy site with some other phones and with a date of August 23rd, though we've learned this is just a "placeholder" and not a real release date. Now the VX8575 has been approved by the FCC and posted to their site, but all images are under 6 month confidentiality. Going through the files that are posted, we see the device will have EVDO, but no mention if it's Rev A or the older Rev 0, as well as a Camera (doesn't list mega-pixels), Touchscreen, Bluetooth, MP3 player and GPS. It also appears the device will not have WiFi (why Verizon?!?) or an FM Transmitter like the Chocolate 3. Let 's hope the user interface and the rest of the features of the Chocolate Touch closely resemble that of the BL40.

Do any of VZW's feature phones have Wi-Fi? Im not dissapointed because I wasn't even considering Wi-Fi as a possible feature

Do we know if this Choco Touch is going to be the same phone as the BL40 from LG that's been in the news recently?

Hi everyone, I have been away on my honeymoon and will be back at work on Monday. I promise I will have pics of the 8575 and Omnia II by Wednesday-Thursday with detailed reviews and specs. Until then, take care!

Wifi would be nice. The new Zune HD has this thing that downloads/displays a slideshow of album art, pix, and bio notes about the band while you're listening to music. Wifi would allow stuff like that without requiring a data connection, but it does add to production costs and takes away potential data revenue, so I can see why they don't include it.

I wouldn't be too anxious about Wifi on basic BREW phones... That just brings along mandatory data plans for them, just like Wifi brought mandatory data plans to PDAs/smartphones

Also, I have no idea what Best Buy is thinking but the 23rd release is false.

Good news! Samsung Rogue is in Verizons system and if you find a kind sales rep they can order it for you and you will get it by the end of the week

I take it back, they are in the system but not priced accurately.
