LG Chocolate to get Speakerphone
The LG VX8500Chocolate for Verizon is one of the most popular phones of 2006. Part phone and part MP3 player it is Verizon's attempt at competing against the iPod. Oddly, unlike almost every other cell phone launched in the last two years, the LG Chocolate did not have a speakerphone.
Verizon is now correcting that. As of early October, a software upgrade will be available for the Chocolate. Existing owners can visit a Verizon retail outlet to get the upgrade. It is assumed that new Chocolate phones will have this upgrade already included.
