Alltel likes colors, from gloss black to fire red -- so it's no wonder that one of the handset staples in its inventory is getting new skins for all kinds of personalities and tastes.

Oops! Dotting all your i's and crossing all your t's is a painstaking process, we know, LG... we don't fault you in the least for leaking press shots (accidentally, we presume) for your VX8600 at CTIA.

It'll apparently have a 1.3 megapixe...
