Verizon gets official with the LG Dare, LG Decoy, and Chocolate 3

Today is a big day for Verizon. The company announced 3 shiny new LG handsets, each with a specific market niche in its target. All of the handsets have been circulating through the rumor mill for quite some time, but it’s always nice to get official confirmation, right? The LG Dare is an all touch screen affair, sporting a 3.2 megapixel camera and gesture support on the input side. No price or availability date was announced but Verizon promised more info by the end of the month. They were similarly coy about pricing and availability specifics on the Chocolate 3, but did make the 1GB of internal memory, clamshell form factor, and 2-megapixel camera official. Finally, the LG Decoy should hit stores by next Monday, slotting in at $179.99 with a 2-year agreement, seems to mark the first widely available American handset with a built-in Bluetooth headset. This is all well and good, but until we can actually get our hands on a Dare and a Decoy, we’re gonna take a rain check as this all had the feeling of an announcement about an upcoming announcement. Thanks a lot.
