New Verizon phones due out by the end of the year
We have received some information from a source within Verizon detailing some new phones that are due out over the next few months. We have listed them below for easy viewing. Thank you "SnapDude"!

LG Chocolate Touch VX8575. This will be Verizon's 4th Chocolate phone (after the VX8500, VX8550 and VX8560) and is expected to have a full touchscreen interface, but we're not sure how close it will resemble the BL40.
BlackBerry Storm 2 9550. We've heard about this for a while now and is expected out by October-November.
Nokia Shade 2705. Basic replacement to the Mirage 2605.
Nokia Twist 7705. This might be the swivel-style phone that has been rumored for months.
Palm Treo 800W. Even though this was released for Sprint last year, Verizon may not have it out until February 2010.
Motorola Entice (or Harmony) W766. Replacement to the W755.
Samsung Rogue U960. Replacement to the Glyde U940 and expected out in August.
Samsung U450. The U450 will feature Verizon Mobile TV service (MediaFLO).
Samsung Strut U440. The long-overdue Strut U440 will have a compact QWERTY keyboard.
Samsung Omnia-II i920. The new Omnia-II is expected to be out by Christmas.

There are also going to be four new PTT devices:
