Been hankering for a VZW flip phone with a 3.5mm headphone jack, integrated FM transmitter, and cool baby blue finish? Thought so. Your wait is almost over, at least according to those crazy guys at PhoneArena. They're claiming the LG Chocolate 3 will be hitting Verizon Wireless next Monday the 14th for $129 after rebate on two-year contract.
Chocolate 3 eschews the slider form factor of its predecessor in favor of a compact flip with 2.2" internal and 1.76" external displays, 2MP camera, and 1GB of internal memory backed by a microSD card slot. This will also be the first VZW handset to feature Dashboard, a new shortcut system for accessing VCAST data services. The new Chocolate will be available in Black and Light Blue at launch, and you know we'll have it on video for you just as soon as we can.
