If you were to play an impromptu game of word association with us and we said "LG," "candybar for Verizon" probably wouldn't be your first response. Of course, that wouldn't be a legal response since it's three words, not one, but let's try to stay on task here -- the point is that you don't see a whole many LG candybars hit Big Red. Well, seeing is believing, and phoneArena now seems to have scored the first semi-decent picture of what will become the VX7100 Glance, a surprisingly okay-looking black candybar with silver accents. Rumor has it this one will be playing in the low- to midrange, which we can totally believe given its relatively low "VX" number designation and the fact that it'll lack EV-DO; other than that, though, specs are hard to come by at this point, and your guess at a release date is as good as ours. Call us easy sales, but the totally red-free menu here has us stoked already.
