Rumor: LG VX8575 coming October 18th?

We’ve got a pretty good idea of what we should expect of LG’s upcoming Chocolate Touch, the VX8575 – at least, we’ve got a better idea than we did a week ago. We know to expect a 3.5mm jack, 3″ touchscreen, and a 3.2 megapixel camera. We (sadly) know that it won’t look like the yardstick-esque LG BL40. Pretty much the only things we don’t know are the price and launch date. This morning, that last item might have been cleared up.

According to PhoneArena‘s sources (and they were the ones to break the first shots of the VX8575, after all), this new Chocolate ought to be on the shelves by October 18th. The source wasn’t able to name a price – but seeing as those things tend to get pinned down just a few days before launch, that’s not too surprising.
