Verizon to launch Nokia Twist 7705, LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 and more

Verizon Wireless, North America’s largest mobile carrier, is obviously getting ready to launch many new phones this year, and we’ve got the names of about 14 of them (some already in the rumors, others completely unknown).

First of all, there’s the LG Chocolate Touch VX8575, a full-touchscreen phone that should come as Verizon’s fourth Chocolate handset – after VX8500, VX8550 and the VX8560. It’s not clear yet if the Chocolate Touch VX8575 is the LG BL40, the LG BL42, or another unannounced phone.

Next, we have two Nokia handsets: Nokia Shade 2705 (an entry-level phone to succeed the Mirage 2605) and Nokia Twist 7705, rumored to be a phone with a swiveling display.

BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 is obviously on the “coming soon” list too – it should be launched in October or November.

Samsung Rogue U960, aka Samsung Glyde 2 (pictured below) is prepared by Verizon for an August release.

As we’ve guessed earlier today, the Samsung i920 will be Verizon’s Omnia II – it is probably not the Omnia II announced by Samsung for Europe and Asia, since they have different model names (i920 vs. i8000). Anyway, Verizon’s new Samsung Omnia II i920 might be launched in time for Christmas.

Samsung U450 and Strut U440 should complete the Samsung line-up.

There’s a Motorola phone too – Motorola Entice aka Harmony W766. It will replace the W755, but it’s not clear yet when.

Four push-to-talk phones are also coming soon from Verizon:

  • Casio Rock C731
  • Casio Brigade C741
  • Motorola V860
  • Samsung Convoy U640

Interestingly, it looks like Verizon will also launch the Palm Treo 800w, a rather old smartphone that’s available via Sprint since last year. Verizon may introduce the Treo 800w in February 2010.

    It appears the VX8575 will be based on the BL42 and not on the BL40. Here is the address to the new VZW Chocolate.
