November 6, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Even as the Verizon Droid Eris by HTC and the BlackBerry Curve 8530 continue stay on top by grabbing headline space, the carrier has announced two new LG and Samsung smartphones, with a promise to add to the lure. While the LG Chocolate Touch comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera, FM radio and stereo Bluetooth support, the Samsung Convoy boasts of EVDO Rev.A, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, Push-to-Talk (PTT) and an integrated stereo speaker.

Verizon has said in a statement that the LG Chocolate Touch, which is available now, brings to the user a richer music listening experience and has FM radio with 12 presets, integrated Song ID, dedicated side key for easy access to favorite songs and Bluetooth functions that support headset, hands-free, dial-up networking, stereo, phonebook access, basic printing, file transfer and imaging. The high-frequency enhancer would aid in reinforcing high frequencies.

Verizon offers the stylish Chocolate Touch for $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. Added features include access to social networking sites, with a social networking shortcut key that lets you upload pictures and videos to the social networking sites.

Meanwhile, Verizon’s Samsung offering houses a high-quality stereo speaker, added battery life and multiple messaging options. The 2.0 mega pixel camera offers night shot, panorama and color effects functions. Bluetooth version 2.1 connectivity and personal organizer are incorporated.
To debut on November 15, the Samsung Convoy will be offered for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. You will also have the option to add Unlimited Push-to-Talk for $5 per month per line to any qualifying nationwide voice plan.
