Document confirms October launch timing for the Sholes and the VX8575

A freshly-leaked internal document, allegedly provided by a Verizon employee, seems to confirm the previously known October launch timing of the side-sliding Motorola Sholes Android phone and the slim LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 for Verizon. According to the doc, the VX8575 should launch sometime around mid-October. The Sep 29 and Oct 14 release dates for the Storm 2 are also confirmed here, so it seems October will be a great month for cell phone enthusiasts. Enjoy the leak while waiting for these hot devices to come out!

Android on Verizon scares me a bit b/c of all other phones that Verizon has crippled in one way or another. If they truly behave themselves by not ruining the openess of an Android phone, then I'll be first in line. However, if they continue to cripple an otherwise decent phone, I will be forced to jump ship to T-mobile to get myself a myTouch. Ball's in your court Verizon.

Verizon doesn't cripple anymore, not smartphones at least. Expect the Sholes to have everything it should.

Verizon has a lack of anything to cripple, lately. True by fact of exception. Sorry, dude, T-Mobile crippled the RAM on the MyTouch. Wait for some details on Sprint's Hero before you go one way or the other. October is far away, but, maybe, it will be worth it.

The Touch Pro and Diamond were the last two I was seriously looking at purchasing when I read about what Verizon was doing to those phones compared to what they were like on other Carriers. That was in the last twelve months so I'm not sure what you are referring, but that's fairly recent considering 2 year contracts exist.

Been sitting on my NE2 since May and it looks like October's the time to use it. So the question is starting to shape up as which is better: Storm 2 or Sholes? C'mon Sept 10th... show me something promising...

I can't wait for the sholes, its going to be way better than the G1. I have a quick question, is the sholes 5 megapixel camera going to have a flash? I'm spoiled with the Omnias camera right now.

Spoiled with the Omnia's camera lol.....its horrible. Well i guess being with verizon you have no other options. Nokia N82 has the best overall camera on a phone.
