Here comes the LG Decoy
Almost four months after we first heard about the LG VX8610, the Decoy has finally been released by Verizon Wireless. The most unique feature of the device is its integrated Bluetooth earpiece, which is detachable from the back of the phone. While not in use, you can simply reconnect it to the phone for easy storage and for charging its battery. The Decoy offers a slider design with a joystick d-pad, 2.2" QVGA display, Bluetooth 2.0, WAP browser, 2MP camera, microUSB port, 2.5mm headset jack, and microSDHC support up to 8GB. Pricing is currently set at $179 after a $50 rebate with a 2-year contract.

Seriously I know I'm looking stupid by still arguining, but both of you look stupid as well. comment # 11, you realize how contradictory what you said was right? Because you're saying that person is allowed to have an opinion and I'm not. They had an opinion. Then I had an opinion. My opinion was that that person is retarded. So before you try to defend an anonymous person, you can grow up also. This isn't elemenary school, not everyone is going to pat you on the back and say good job when you do or say something stupid. We're adults, opinions cause conflict. However I wasn't attacking them because about an opinion, they asked a question and I attacked their common sense. #12 Once again, I attacked their common sense, they complained about not being able to see the side of the phone, I stated that if they read through the article or actually looked at instead of jumping to post, they would have very easily seen a 360 display.

it has a small hump. its about the same as the enV's camera hump, more or less. Its made pretty light though, id say maybe a smidge lighter than a regular chocolate, even though it is a hair wider. It has the newer UI that is on the EnV2. It will be interesting to see how well it sells, and how much of a headache that blutooth is going to be, when they lose it and come in whining trying to get a free replacement.

I played with the phone today and thought it was quit nice, The blue-tooth does not seem to stick out all that much and is quit small. If you go to Verizon's site it indicate (under supplied accessories) that the phone comes with a small cover to put in place of the blue-tooth for people who don't want to use, or carry it around so it will be flat in the back. I like that idea,

I've been playing with the phone for the past couple of days and I think they could have designed the bluetooth better. The ear bud part that you would stick in your ear does not stick out far enough for you to put it in your ear and also there is no kind of curve to the bluetooth so it is basicly flat and hard to put into your ear and make it fit. The front of the phone is also that gloss material making really really hard to keep clean when people touch it leave finger prints all over it.
