Available in marine blue, shimmering gold, and apple green, the LG AX8600 for Alltel is a sexy reimagining of the LG VX8600.

The LG VX8700 is a shiny new successor to the LG VX8600. Clad in stainless steel, the external screen has a reflective surface when the phone is inactive and can be used as a mirror. This slim and sexy phone with a 262,000-color display has some pretty impressive features as well. They include a 2.0-megapixel camera, a music player, a microSD card slot, a video recorder, a video player, stereo Bluetooth, text and multimedia messaging, a speakerphone, voice recording, a 1,000-contact address book, and EV-DO support. Verizon is slated to be the VX8700's exclusive carrier, which means it'll also have access to V Cast Video and V Cast Music. Available starting April 6 on Verizon's Web site, and starting April 17 in stores, the LG VX8700 will retail for $179.99 after a two-year service agreement and a $50 rebate.
