Chocolate flip phone hits the street

Verizon releases the LG VX8600

Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless just launched the LG VX8600 Chocolate flip phone this morning, and all the features and specs are just as we blogged about last week. As a recap, the features of the phone include a music player, a 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder, a microSD card slot, A2DP Bluetooth support, built-in GPS, a speakerphone, and support for V Cast Music and V Cast Video. And of course, you get the sexy and sleek design of the LG Chocolate but in the clamshell form factor. The retail value of the phone is $179.99 but you can get it for $129.99 each after a two-year service agreement.
