Now that the successor to LG's Chocolate line has been available to Verizon Wireless customers, we thought it would only be fitting to put the latest addition through the paces and see if the VX8550 is a worthy successor. From a quick glimpse, both the LG VX8500 and the VX8550 both share the slide

It looks like Verizon and LG are gearing up to release to their latest addition in the Chocolate lineup, the VX8550. This round, the VX8550 is sportin' two new colors than before -- this time \"black cherry\" and \"blue mint\" will make your mouth water, and lets not forgot the traditional black. The d

Goodness, has it really been nearly a year since Verizon's VX8500 Chocolate from LG hit streets? Indeed it has, and by cellphone standards, we reckon that's an eternity; Verizon has managed to keep the line fresh by injecting color after color after color, but sooner or later, you've gotta drop new

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

Ultra rugged or delicate, glossy white -- that is the question. Verizon has gone ahead and launched a couple of its more hotly anticipated handsets this week, the over-engineered G'zOne Type-V clamshell from Casio and the white variant of the LG VX8500 Chocolate slider. While neither phone is going

Ever wonder what a metallic, phlegm-green LG Chocolate might look like? Well, wonder no longer. We've managed to score press photos for Verizon's VX8500 in all three of its new colors, and although it's difficult to argue the hotness of the white and red varieties, the green just is not doing anyth

If neither white nor the original black are working for you, word on the street has Verizon and LG preparing two additional colors of their VX8500 Chocolate slider: red and green, putting a full them one third of the way to a lock on the primary color wheel.

Given the fanfare surrounding the release of the LG VX8500 \"Chocolate\" on Verizon a couple months back, buyers and reviewers alike were pretty shocked to find that the supposed high-function slider lacked a frickin' speakerphone, of all things (us included). Fortunately, it's been rumored for some t

Yeah, it's got hype, alright -- but hype alone does not a good cellphone make. Does LG's VX8500 \"Chocolate\" for Verizon Wireless have any brains behind the beauty, or is the glossy slider all bark and no bite? Head on over to our Mobile outpost for the full rundown!

With their uncharacteristically intensive marketing campaign over the last month focusing on this phone alone, it's readily apparent that Verizon has high hopes their VX8500 \"Chocolate\" slider is ready to take the torch from Motorola's original V3 RAZR as the must-have midrange handset for the mass

The finer visual details of the VX8500's hinged sibling might remain unclear with these blur-tastic shots, but we think we can see enough here to question whether Verizon and LG are taking the \"Chocolate\" theme a smidge far. Its glossy exterior is presumably graced with the trademark touch-sensitiv

With release dates galore, unboxing pics and of course a whole former life as Korea-only hawterness, you can understand if we're happy to be \"done\" with this one. Verizon has finally released LG's Chocolate phone, the VX8500. There's a mostly a dearth of surprises: sexy slider action in a 0.69-in

Screw waiting until the official release this week -- we want to live vicariously through the few lucky souls who've already managed to score a piece of Verizon's Chocolate. A HowardForums member has managed to hook us all up, putting down his glossy black bundle of joy just long enough to snap a f

In what's likely the first salvo of a forthcoming big-ass marketing blitz, Verizon has gone live with its site promoting the VX8500, their carrier-exclusive rendition of LG's KG800 \"Chocolate\" phone. The first Chocolate and its siblings are fairly ubiquitous now in Europe and Asia, but we've yet t

Just as our Asian friends are likely starting to tire of their glossy black pearls of LG goodness, we're now getting word that the Chocolate might make its first official US appearance in CDMA form as Verizon's flagship phone. The VX8500, as it'll likely be known, bears a strong resemblance to
