LG is ready to announce a version of the Shine to the US at CES. The Shine is the successor to the Chocolate, which has been sold on Verizon since the fall. It is slimmer than the Chocolate, but is similarly a slider with a large QVGA display. It is named Shine because the display is reflective when off. In addition to the large display, the Shine features an advanced 2 Megapixel autofocus camera, 1 GB of RAM, Bluetooth and EV-DO data. LG has not revealed which carrier will get the Shine.

Chocalate looks cool but you can't read the screen in daylight, can't dial if outside in winter even if wearing the thinnest of gloves and the UI is certainly nit intuitive. Is there anything out there that has been thought through from a user perspec...

I hope verizon gets it!

i hope verizon gets their paws on it...looks like a nice phone
if its the follow up to the Chocolate, Verizon will probably get it. common sense
Seems real nice, stainless steel, about as heavy as the 8100. Been waiting for this. Might have to switch if VZW doesn't get it. Here's some info:http://www.slashphone.com/89/5584.html
