Updated: LG VX9100 and VX8610 coming to Verizon
Today we received information from one of our sources regarding two new LG phones that will be making their way to Verizon in the upcoming months.
The VX9100, which will replace the VX9900 enV, has a more streamlined appearance and is slightly thinner, since there is no "camera hump" on the back. The front features a newly designed dialpad with larger buttons than on the enV, as well as replacing the standard 5-way navigational d-pad with more simplistic Up & Down arrow buttons. There still is a small display located at the top. Opening up the VX9100 reveals a better designed QWERTY keypad, along with a standard QVGA display and stereo speakers. Other features include a 2MP Camera, microSD card slot, and microUSB port.
LG VX9100 Preliminary specifications
The VX8610, which will probably replace the VX8550 Chocolate, is a slider style phone with a new look. The touch-sensitive buttons are now replaced with 4 standard buttons that surround a new trackball d-pad (similar the ball used on BlackBerry devices). Sliding the phone open and close works just like the Chocolate and Venus. However, turning the VX8610 over will reveal its most interesting feature: a built-in removable Bluetooth earpiece. This is the first Verizon phone that incorporates a removable BT earpiece, so we are sure it will be one of its biggest selling points. Other features include a QVGA display, 2MP Camera, microSD card slot, and microUSB port.
LG VX8610 Preliminary specifications
Themes included on the VX9100 and VX8610 include Classic, SlickBlack, LG Theme 1, and LG Theme 2.
Unfortunately, both devices still use the standard WAP browser, which leaves the Voyager the only non-smartphone with an HTML
browser.We expect Verizon to release the VX9100 and VX8610 by the end of Q2.
