Prada at Verizon?
The Federal Communications Commission has approved a new LG phone, codenamed the VX9700. The VX designation indicates that it is headed for Verizon Wireless, although few other details have been made public; rumors suggest that the phone may be variant of the Prada fashion phone, which in turn is similar to Verizon's existing Voyager, except that it uses a full-face touchscreen and omits a physical keyboard. One possibility is that the phone is related to the Vu, which is in fact connected to the Prada phone but is currently scheduled to appear on AT&T. A CDMA conversion would be needed for Verizon.
