New LG VX8610 "Decoy" slider

The follow up to LG’s Chocolate VX8550 slider phone on Verizon, the Decoy VX8610, is set to finally show its face on June 16th.

The Decoy rids itself of the awful touch-based front controls and replaces them with regular physical buttons and a d-pad. The new cellphone is rumored to have a removable Bluetooth headset, which is definitely cool. The Decoy also includes a 2 megapixel camera, plenty of storage room thanks to a microSD expansion slot, and a large QVGA (320?240 pixel) display.

Evidence is showing that the CDMA slider will be available for US$179.99 with a two-year service agreement or US$249.99 with a one-year agreement, after a $50 mail-in rebate.
