LG VX8500 is Verizon's Chocolate phone
Back in May, we reported about the latest phone manufactured from LG to be part of the Verizon line of high-end phones the VX8500. The only photo available at that time was of low quality and even we were not sure if it will be a slider or a clamshell. However, the latest information and images show that the VX8500 is a black glossy slider, part of the Chocolate line. On the upper part of the phone, it has a large navigation key, similar to the one used in the iPOD music players. Similar to the European Chocolate, the VX8500's keypad will be flat in surface for keeping it slim, and the black color of the housing will be combined with white and vivid red.

There is no official date for launching the phone as neither Verizon nor LG have announced it, but some rumors say it will start shipping on Oct 7 this year, as this is the date that the phone on the images displays.
