Verizon's Mint and Cherry LG Chocolate launch: who cares?

As if that white and dark LG Chocolate wasn't enough, Verizon just released red (no, not that RED) and green versions of the venerable VX8500 slider in hopes of stoking a bit of yule in our Grinchy hearts. No surprises here since we've been expecting these to drop since last month. Same specs we've seen, and yours for the usual $129.99 after on-line discount and 2-year commitment -- which should be enough time to convince everyone of their "Cherry" and "Mint" coloring.

[Thanks, Tyler A.]
