It turns out that we were slightly off when we said the LG Chocolate 3 would be out on July 14. Verizon just announced today that the Chocolate flip phone will actually hit the retail shelves a full day early on July 13 (In Verizon retail stores, Circuit City, as well as the online store). The LG Chocolate 3 will also be the marquee music phone for Verizon's new V Cast Music with Rhapsody deal. Indeed, with a 3.5mm headset jack, stereo Bluetooth, stereo speakers, and a built-in FM transmitter, Verizon hopes for the Chocolate 3 to be a full-blown music handset. Other features include a microSD card slot, a 1GB of internal memory, a 2-megapixel camera, VZ Navigator support, V Cast Video support, plus it's the first Verizon phone to feature "Dashboard", a Flash-based portal that delivers multimedia information to the phone. The LG Chocolate 3 will be available for $129.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year service agreement.
