LG Chocolate Touch prices revealed
Not into the all the Motorola Droid hype that has been going on, and looking for a basic touchscreen phone with some music ability? Then the new LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 might be for you. We've know about the device for quite some time, and even previewed a pre-production unit last month, but on November 5th it will finally be released. Verizon's internal site is showing that the price will be $79.99 after a $50 rebate with a 2-year contract, $149.99 after $50 rebate with a 1-year contract, and $259.99 full retail. Features will include a 3" touchscreen with 400x240 pixel resolution, music player and FM radio that can play in the background (multitasking), 3.2MP camera, 1GB internal music memory, 16GB microSDHC support, HTML web browser, and all the standard VCast capabilities. For some reason they decided for data to use EVDO Rev 0 instead of Rev A, but in doing so it will not be classified as an Enhanced Multimedia Phone and will not require a data plan. So will you upgrade to the new Chocolate Touch from your older Chocolate or Chocolate 3? Let us know in the Comment section below.

went from the Dare to the Storm and now to the Droid. Fuck this phone. Got to play with it just about an hour ago. It's rubbish, and will fail just like every other LG "Chocolate" phone. Dumbphones or feature phones are retarded as is

This phone isn't much more manlier... I like the long Chocolate Touch better. At least it was unique. btw, required data plans on dumbphones is complete bs. I thought required data was bad for smartphones (hey some people want a good phone but don't have the money to get a data plan), but this is even worse.

You do realize this is Rev. O and therefore does not require a feature phone data package?

i'll upgrade from my chocolate 3 if it has a FM transmitter. Some of the sites said it does and some say it doesn't
