Less than two weeks ago, we told you the was on its way to Verizon very soon. Though Verizon didn't announce a formal release date at the time, we told you we'd get back to you when we had it. And now we do.
Though other outlets have reported August 14 or August 16 as the release date, CNET has learned the Chocolate will be available in stores August 8. Verizon will start taking online orders on Monday, July 31, which is the official launch date, but you won't be able to get the Chocolate in your hands until a little more than a week later.
