Verizon Wireless have included the LG Chocolate phone on their site so now we can have a 360-degree view of the eagerly anticipated stylish device. After a closer look we noticed that design wise the d-pad (now iPod styled) is not the only difference with the European version. The side keys here are placed on the upper sliding part of the phone while the same are located on the lower one (where the keypad is) in the KG800 version. It also looks like the VX8500 lacks flash as we see in the 3D demo of the phone. Despite red Verizon UI seen in the demo, we expect that there will also be flash UI which is used in new LG phones like the VX-8300.
A possible launch date is August 16, having in mind the one displayed on the phone's screen in the demo.
