Call us fickle, but memories of the Motorola RAZR maxx Ve are already fading. We have virtually no details on this thing, other than the fact that it's the LG VX8700 and it's headed for Verizon; seems a worthy successor to the VX8600, does it not? The Shine-inspired clamshell should launch with a Flash-based UI (rife with Verizon red, no doubt) some time between tomorrow and... oh, say, the year 2100. Follow the break for a picture of the VX8700 all closed up (and no, it doesn't magically shrink when shut).
