Verizon two weeks away from LG Chocolate Touch?
A new tipster with Verizon connections has given BGR the tip that the LG Chocolate Touch will be making it's way into the carrier's stores in 2 weeks. No, this is not the Chocolate BL40  or even the BL20. Instead, this has the same form factor that you've seen on LG handsets like the Versa and the Dare. For some reason, Verizon thought best to use the older EV-DO rev. 0 for 3G connectivity. That usually means slower data speeds, especially when looking up some complex web sites. The pictures from the 3.2MP camera will be displayed on the 3 inch touchscreen with resolution of  240 X 400 pixels. When it comes time to catch some tunes, the on-board FM radio will come in handy. And Big Red kicks in a couple of apps like VZ Navigator and Visual Voicemail (although you still have to pay monthly for each). We still have no idea on pricing. With all of the smartphones that Verizon will be offering in the next few weeks, the LG Chocolate Touch might get lost in the crowd, but not everyone wants a smartphone and this will be another feature phone in the carrier's stable.

I would go with the Instinct HD before this, to each their own

well yeah if your a sprint customer, but im with verizon and i really cant go to any other carrier cause nothing else works as good as verizon where i live/work/go...i wish i could afford the smartphone plan of an extra 30 per month but since i cant right now, im going to have to go with either this or the we will see.

That blanket statement really only applies to deep rural areas, give them a shot and you'll be able to get whatever smartphone they sell and still have those 90M vzw calls for free

not to impress with this phone when we received it today. looks like the decoy all shinny and crap. and the finger stylus is a cool idea and all but i am certain people are going to lose it. would look better without shinny IMO.
