Spelunking through the nooks and crannies of carriers' websites often yield tidbits on upcoming phones; Verizon's Backup Assistant page is doing the honors today, shedding light on a couple of LGs that'll be dropping shortly. First up is the "big brother to the VX9800," the VX9900, a phone our own Boy Genius told us
would be dropping in September -- the 4th to be exact, if Verizon's documentation is to be trusted. Next is the VX8600
, which we believe will expand LG's Chocolate franchise in the US to the clamshell form factor. Of course, some of us are still waiting for even a single GSM Chocolate to officially launch stateside, but more power to our CDMA compadres for scoring two of 'em.
