We have seen that an awful lot of you have checked out our LG Chocolate VX8500 review that we published a few weeks ago, so we figure that there are quite a few Chocolate fans out there. Well, for those who waited on the purchase (or for the big spenders,) you might be pleased to know that Verizon is planning a white LG Chocolate phone which should launch sometimes next month.

The LG Chocolate VX8500 debuted in the United States to much fanfare. Verizon pushed it as the next big thing in mobile entertainment phones, and even went all out with a television commercial campaign.

We took the VX8500 for a spin, and report back with our full review which you can check out after the break.
If you like Chocolate, but prefer it in a clamshell, here is a sneak-peak at the LG VX-8600. Similar to its VX-8500 mate (it has a lower resolution display), this model features EV-DO high-speed data, stereo Bluetooth, a 176 X 220 main screen with 262k colors, a 128 X 128 external screen with 65k colors, a 1.3 megapixel cam, a microSD card slot, and music player with external WMA/MP3 controls.

EDIT: I should have been more clear. Use MobileWEB4U to find out how to access the appropriate menu on your phone where you change servers. Once you find the menu, enter a proxy server. You can find one at http://www.publicproxyservers.com.
You must also enter both the proxy server address as well as the port it uses. If you don’t have both, it won’t work.
