LG launches the KG810 clamshell Chocolate phone

Mobile phones

The Chocolate phone just got a bit more hip, with the introduction of the KG810 – LG’s clamshell Chocolate phone.

Rather than the word "clamshell", LG seems to prefer "folder" for its new phone. And apart from that, it’s almost got the same technical specifications as the original Chocolate handset – a fully featured MP3/AAC music player including A2DP Bluetooth for wireless music, 128 meg of on-board memory, a 1.3 megapixel camera and video camera – with the addition of an FM radio the only technical difference.

LG is being particularly bullish about its new handset. According to John Barton, Sales & Marketing Director, LG Mobile: "This is the best looking folding handset on the market. It’s thin enough to slip into a pair of jeans, yet feels solid and luxurious when in use. The unique touch sensitive keys on the top let you know that it’s a Chocolate phone and the new form factor adds even more individuality to an already iconic handset."

If all that sells the phone to you, you can pick it up exclusively from Phones4U sometime this month, with a presentation box, stereo headphones and USB lead as standard. Prices is from free on contract.
