Though we've seen the LG VX8700 at the LG booth at CTIA, we weren't allowed official information about all the important carrier details--despite the glaringly obvious "Verizon" logo emblazoned on its front surface. However, Verizon has finally let the cat out of the bag and officially announced that, yes, it will indeed carry the LG VX8700 in its lineup. This means that in addition to all the multimedia goodness already in the handset (a 2.0-megapixel camera, a music player, and a video recorder, just for starters), the VX8700 will also support V Cast video and V Cast Music. It'll also be compatible with VZ Navigator, Verizon's GPS turn-by-turn navigation service. Other goodies include a microSD card slot, voice-recording capabilities, stereo Bluetooth, speakerphone, and EV-DO support. Expect the VX8700 to be available on the Verizon Web site starting April 6, and in Verizon stores starting April 17. After a $50 rebate, it will cost you $179.99 with a two-year service agreement.
