LG VX8575 Chocolate Touch nothing like BL40

The LG VX8575 Chocolate Touch for Verizon looks nothing like the LG BL40 that's headed for Europe.

We've seen leaked photos of the elusive LG VX8575 Chocolate Touch before, but nothing as clear and close up as these pics on PhoneArena. Unfortunately, it does seem like Verizon's version of the Chocolate Touch will look nothing like the luscious LG BL40 that the Europeans are getting this fall.

PhoneArena's source mentioned that apparently a few focus groups didn't care so much for the BL40 and so we got stuck with this scaled-down version (thanks a lot, "focus groups").

Still, it doesn't look too bad. It looks to have a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 3.5-mm headset jack, an HTML browser, and a music player. We're still waiting for this thing to become official, which probably won't take long, and we'll get you all the official specs, pricing, and availability once that happens.
