VERIZON IS 1st WITH MP PHONE

Actually verizon had the vx7000 out before this phone so they really arent 1st
Where does it say that the LGVX7000 is has a megapixel camera? Phonescoop doesn't list it's "megapixelness" under it's specs...
...
The VX-7000 is not megapixel, it's VGA.

VGA is 640 x 480 pixels, which works out to 0.3 "megapixels".

Where can you get this phone?

Where is this phone?
The link on Sprint's website still does not work. Hopefully I can play with one soon Very Happy
I work at RadioShack, and a memo yesterday stated that we would be carrying the phone. So make sure you check http://www.radioshack.com for store availability. I think we'll have it within the next week or two.
The press release said Sprint Stores should have it.
The phone just came into Radio Shack today
