LG VX8800 and VX10000 for Verizon have touch-displays!
posted by Nanko R. / Sep 05, 2007, 4:47 AM
The LG VX8800 is a slider, similar to the VX8550, but instead of the touch-activated buttons will be navigated by a dynamic touch display area. Depending on the menu you are in, it will display different navigation options (buttons, sliders, etc). From the photos it seems that it is not part of the main display, which will probably be non-touch one. The bottom slider will typically house numeric keyboard.
The LG VX10000 is very similar to the enV on the inside, but on the outside it has much bigger and now touch-sensitive display, instead of the numeric keyboard. Similar to LG’s European models with Touch-display (Prada, KS20 and Viewty), it has only 3 keys and the display has the typical four LG shortcuts. Probably the interface will also be personalized, to match the above mentioned models.
*Update 10 Sep* The VX10000 will support the VCast MobileTV MediaFLO service.
As a whole, the VX8800 will logically update the Chocolate series with new solution for navigation (dynamic display instead of buttons) and the VX10000 will make the enV slimmer and more attractive with full functionality when closed, which must be opened only when texting.

I am so mad because i just got the new orange enV and now i see the LG 10000 and it is ridiculous, it is exactly what the enV lacks which is a much bigger screen on the outside and what makes it even greater is that it is a touch screen as well!!!

Um, yeah.. Ok. It's been a year since this comment, and it's clear that you were being a bit hasty. I've owned the voyager since it released, and although its a great PHONE; the best reception I've had on a cell, the "touch" ui nothing but a gimmick. No third party apps, or ANY apps for that mater. It's a GREAT phone for chatting, but in no way shape or form, or any plane of reality, can the voyager be compared with the iphone let alone be called an iphone killer. Verizon is quickly falling behind in the hardware department. With the iphone 3g and the new Blackberry Bold on AT&T's lineup, i'm seriously considering finally jumping ship after waiting for verizon to get some ground breaking phones.

I hate to look for new cell phones. There are so damned many of them to consider. I have been very pleased with my LG 7000. I was thinking about the iPhone, but I am hooked on the best network on the planet and didn't want to switch. Verizon always has a product line chock-filled with stodgy phones. I obsessed about cell phones. I thought the LG 8700 in it's silvery shininess was it, but alas the battery life was said to be too short. I have an extended battery in the 7000 and I do not want to recharge every day. A fleeting thought about the EnV, but then again the technology is last years, already! Then I became convinced that a snart phone might be the best way to go. So I obsessed about smart phones. Should it have WiFi? Verizonis scheduled to launch the Blakberry Pearl by December...maybe I could wait. But they were supposed to deliver the Samsung i1760 in September. Then I discovered the Nokia N series, but they were all BIG bucks and did I really need all those features anyway? I want long battery life, a big screen, sleek looks, WiFi, voice dialing, internet access and a qwerty keyboard and I want LG on Verizon. Bingo! I found my phone. Looks good, huh? Life is good...

15. yup unregistered
The road map that was intraduced to all Verizon sales reps states - Samsung i760 release in September. Nice PDA, the lgvx 8800 depending on bug fixes will release in December i not sooner and the 1000 in around the same time. Even if we get FCC approval, the device could be kicked back due to bugs / issues with the device. So if you are coming up on contract end date or upgrade eligibility. Try to hang tight.I'm curiouse though - how many people know what the difference is between CDMA and TDMA technology? With that thought - as technology advances - CDMA (Verizon / Sprint) will be powerhouses in the next couple of years when it come to Tech devices.

Verizon is SLOWLY coming out with phones that uses CDMA and GSM. They are still WAY BEHIND in phones that uses both technologies. I don't understand why they dont offer more BETTER phones (i.e. Nokia N95). I'm 50/50 if i want to stay with verizon or switch

it is actually a problem to post info about phones before they are released to the pbulic even if it is through online sources like endgagdet or phone arena and if you worked for verizon you would know that, it against company policy, why do you think the id info for the phone is blacked out
