Verizon LG Decoy VX8610 Pre-Released Photos

LG Decoy VX8610Thanks to my friends at Verizon (P and M), here are pictures LG Decoy. The device will retail at $349.99, but incentives, probably $299.99 or less. There is also a $50 rebate.

This is probably one of the first handsets that have included a bluetooth headset at no additional charge. Also, the microphone icon between the SEND and END button is not to tell you where the microphone is located, but for you to input speech commands to navigate menus with voice (I guess while driving). Also nice is the fact that the phone and bluetooth headset both have the same standard charger; although it would be nice to have a Y-splitter on the charger so that you could charge both at the same time!

Finally, the integrated bluetooth headset. I think it’s kind of a neat idea that you store the headset and handset together to prevent you from losing it. However, when I’m using the headset, will I always remember to carry the plastic cover to protect stuff from getting into that slot?
