Verizon's LG VX9900: all dressed up but no place to go

Ok, this is just getting silly now. We've patiently watched the LG VX9900 make its way from the mouth of our own Boy Genius and onto Verizon's Backup Assistant page. We then peeped it wee and splayed, caught in the wild, in a hurry, and finally with a bit more clarity. Now, we've got these apparent press shots, again, from the coffers of Howard Forums. We promise, no more until Verizon ups and releases the damn thing. Be sure to click the read link for all the pics.
