LG VX9700 VZW-bound: Like the Prada phone, just no Prada branding


Somewhere underneath the giant PHONE ARENA watermark is the latest LG phone destined for your local Verizon Wireless store, the LG VX9700. It’s supposed to be VZW’s Prada-less Prada, complete with fancy touchscreen and bubbly UI. It’s supposed to be available by the end of the month, but last-minute delays may push it back into April or May.

Y’all can look forward (?) to a 3.2-megapixel camera (for taking pictures!), microSDHC, T9, etc. etc. It’s all about the touchscreen, obviously.

Honestly, I liked the look of the Prada more than the iPhone, but now I’m set on either an Android-based phone or iPhone v2. I’m really liking the idea of an OSS cellphone.
