Exciting new information is coming from HowardForums about the LG vx10000, including the name! The 9800 was the V, the 9900 was the enV, the 10000 will be the X. I’ll go ahead and predict the VX11000 as the Xtreme. While I’m not giving up on a December 07 release date, it’s looking more and more like we won’t see it until 2008, possibly as late as Spring. Enough conjecture lets take a look at what we do know, make sure to drop by the forums and give users POS_User and industryspy a big thank you for the information.

Slimmer than the enV with the same clamshell design, but a full frontal touchscreen except for the send and end buttons:
You don’t have to open the phone for any standard functions unless you want access to the keyboard, both screens are 2.8 inches and the external touchscreen has vibration feedback, here are a few shots of messaging and e-mail:
Themes and UI are going to be similar to the latest high-end verizon phones and bluetooth profiles, camera, and battery life are all expected to be like the enV, the camera does sit flush with the back of the phone, making it easier to operate when it’s sitting on a hard surface.
The music features are similar to the Chocolate and you can carry out other functions and still have music playing, speakers have been improved over the enV as has general phone loudness.
The X will also be a MediaFlo phone allowing you to watch TV on either screen and easily move between them with out losing your show.
Now the biggest improvement and one that everyone is hoping will make it to the production version is a full HTML browser! A non-brew browser on this thing is going to sell a ton of phones:
Does this phone come close to rivaling the iPhone… NO (there’s no such thing as an iPhone Killer). It does give Verizon customers a chance to own a phone with some of the same important features and a full keyboard. As long as the HTML browser sticks around and the data plans for it aren’t expensive this phone might be enough to lure those who aren’t interested in a smart phone or hassles associated with the iPhone and AT&T.
