We have received information from one of our sources, regarding Verizon's projected release dates for three upcoming LG devices. First is the VX8610 Decoy, which is a slider style phone with a unique built-in removable Bluetooth earpiece. The Decoy is currently scheduled for an on-line release of May 30th and an in-store release of June 9th. Next is the VX8560 Chocolate Flip, which is an update to the VX8600. It features a large external LCD color display with music control pad that allows for easy playback without opening the phone. The VX8560 is scheduled for an on-line release of June 24th and an in-store release early July. Lastly, the pièce de résistance, the VX9700 Dare will be the US CDMA version of the GSM Prada (minus the branding) and will feature a large WQVGA touchscreen, 3.2MP camera with Schneider Kreuznach lens, and on-screen QWERTY keypad. The Dare is expected to have an on-line release of July 4th and an in-store release by mid-July.
As always, keep in mind that these projected release dates are subject to change.
*UPDATE* The Decoy VX8610 is confirmed to have a release of June 16th with a price of $179 after rebate. The Chocolate3 VX8560 is now expected to be released by July 14th. The Dare VX9700 is still scheduled to be out by mid-July.
