(more) LG VX-9800 goodness - VX9800

Engadget pointed to the official LG VX-9800 Verizon Wireless press release today. 

It's got the usual blah blah fluff, but we've got some confirmations of included features.  Here's what caught my eye:

  • With Wireless Sync, customers can get new e-mails, calendar, contact and task information sent to their VX9800s as long as the PC is left on.
    Why does my computer have to be left on?  What does this mean?  Can someone shed some light on this "feature"?
  • CMOS camera sensor instead of CCD
    Bummer, was hoping for the nice VX8000 CCD
  • Business Card Reader
    Novel, but neat
  • Bluetooth(R) technology for certain profiles
    • headset, hands-free, and/or dial-up networking profile(s); pair up to 20 Bluetooth-capable devices; send vCard via Bluetooth
      Verizon is obviously being careful here.  This tells a tale of a phone with no OBEX support.

The list goes on and on.  Word is that the phone is available to Business customers September 26th and to the rest of us peons on October 1st.  I can't wait to get my hands on one of these things...


Verizon has a "Coming Soon" page up on their site for the VX9800.  Check it out.
