The LG8500 has the Chocolate looks but features a full musicplayer supporting Verizon's V CAST service. The LG Chocolate LG-KG800 available in Europe has a more reduced styling as it does not feature big music player buttons in the front.
The Verizon Chocolate features a 1.3MP camera with 2x digital zoom and self-timer, color TFT with 240x320 pixels, integrated speaker, video player, mp3 ring tones and microSD card slot.
Verizon offers the LG Chocolatephone in three bundles starting at $149.99 after a $50 instant online discount and new two-year customer agreement.Verizon Wireless has eliminated the need for customers to subscribe to the V CAST VPak for $15 per month to use V CAST Music.
The Verizon V CAST Music songs cost as little as $0.99 if purchased from the PC or $1.99 if purchased and downloaded over the air onto a V CAST Music phone. Two bucks is still a lot of a song, I guess though Verizon will soon get a grip and match their PC pricing also for OTA downloads.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
