Verizon Launches LG VX8600

Verizon on Wednesday officially released its widely anticipated VX8600 handset. Known alternately as a flip-phone Chocolate equivalent or under LG's own Black Sapphire name, the VX8600 is now shipping from the US cellphone carrier for $130 with the combination of a two-year contract and an instant rebate. Features remain as expected, modifying the original slider phone's features only to add an external display with music controls. Support for Verizon's own V CAST music store is also integrated. The company hasn't yet confirmed the pricing of the phone without a contract, though earlier reports set the cost at $250 before rebates.
